    What is your favorite loach species?

    I have always loved loaches as a whole, but personally, Polka Dot/Burmese Border loaches are my all time favorite. They are full of personality, highly curious, and each has its own one of a kind pattern. I also like how they start to jitter and dash around when they smell food hit the water

    all loaches have big personalities. I currently have yoyo loaches and dwarf loaches. They both are full of personality, active swimmers , My yoyo loaches sometimes annoy my Severum with all the movement and craziness.

    I like kuhli loaches because they don't eat snails, and I also love snails. :)

    I have kuhli's which I rarely see. I had yoyos which were great but very pushy.
    I'd say my favorite are my dojos. They're big and they are out enough that I don't feel like I've wasted bioload (like my kuhlis). The dojos are also super peaceful, even friendly with tiny cories. Their only down side is they need a fairly large tank so that they can have buddies (they really need buddies). I love their cute little whisker faces.

    Sewelia SEW03- while I love my Yoyos these guys a sight to see when they fight. They spin around each other flapping their wing like fins and can do it for hours. Top it off, the juveniles are black with light brown stripes and it changes to brown with small black polka dots.

    I love dojos and kuhlis, its a hard toss up between the two. I really love any of the loaches that are more snake/eel like in appearance. But the dojos are just so personable. I love how they have no qualms about coming right up to me when I have my arm in the tank and checking me out. But the kuhlis are just so stinking cute with their bands and short little round faces. I also love how distinct the kuhli's individual markings are. P. Semicincta are incredibly variable in their markings, and I like being able to tell my individuals in a group apart.
