Please use this topic to post your other Loach photos (i.e. species that do not have their own sub-forum). I'll leave it stickied so it appears at the top of the posts.

Please use your own photos, and not material from the internet.

Please post your photos as attachments, rather than links.

While your compliments on the photos are really appreciated, text-only posts will be removed after a while to keep the gallery pictures-only. If there is a discussion you do not want to loose, please start it again in a separate thread.

Thanks,
Armadillo

My 5 brand new dwarf loaches. They live in my 29G.

I bought them so they could eat my snail and so far it's snails 1 - loaches 0. They haven't as much as LOOKED at the snails. The first picture actually has a snail in the shot which they are, of course, blissfully ignoring.

And this just about blew my mind. The loaches are schooling with ... the otos. It's really fab to watch. Very difficult to get a good shot of it, so I've only got two half-decent pictures of this behaviour.

Here's more of my dwarf loaches. It's really funny to watch them 'school' with anything that moves. They've taken up to schooling with my mollies now.

Oh, and on the first two pictures, on the fake starfish, that's one of their snail victims. Hurray! Snail infestation over!!!

And here's one of the loaches playing in their favorite floating plant.

OK, then. Feeling lonely here. Carol? Got any good pix of other loaches pictures?

Anyways, here's some more of my dwarf loaches schooling with my otos.

You know better than to ask
1) First is a not real good picture of Botia kubotaI (commonly called Angelicus Loaches)
2 & 3)
Botia striata (commonly called zebra Loaches)
4 & 5)
Beaufortia kweichowensis just one kind of Hillstream Loaches

And last but not least "The Brat Pack" Yasuhikotakia morletI ( commonly known as Skunk loaches) Skunks wrestle and chase each other and aren't good tank mates for most fish. but in a species tank I love them.
1) is when I first got them 2 yrs ago so tiny snails were a challenge.
2 & 3) they were about a year old.

I just picked up 5 new kubotaI at the lfs Saturday. I've never seen them available locally, but they came along with the yoyo's in a recent shipment. Best part was, they were the same price, $3.99 each. I paid twice that plus shipping for the first group of 5. I was hoping they'd encourage the larger ones to come out more often, but so far it isn't working. At least the new ones are more active/visible, though that may change after they settle in. The new arrivals are just a bit more than half the size of the older group, hardly showing any spots yet. I like they way they become more attractively patterned as they grow, just wish I saw them more often. Here's a couple pics of the new arrivals.
Hoping for leftovers on the sponges:

Here is Dyson and Kirby with two guys who haven't grown yet.
Why do they sometimes stay verticle? Any ideas?
