I have seachem fluorite and I can't tell if its a good substrate for them!! I have blue shrimp and red shrimp in a ten gallon with two hillstream loaches, ik they like faster currents I couldnt scoop them out of the tank and they seem pretty happy I believe they were brought up in slower moving water but anyways yeah do they like this sunstrate? how lomg until they breed I just got them about 3 days ago but I wanna know when they on average breed. also what do u have luck with on feeding them I have tetra flakes I have bug bites I have algae wafers spirulina wafers frozen bbs frozen spirulina brine shrimp frozen blood worms

I personally like that substrate.
Do you know how old they are? If they are sexually mature then maybe in a couple of weeks. Loaches are notoriously hard to breed.
They will probably accept most of those.

Maybe. It's also very difficult to sex loaches. You basically have to go off of fin shapes.
