Re: keeping a solo clown loach

Skunk botia and Skunk Loach are both common names for Yasuhikotakia morleti : http://www.loaches.com/species-index/yasuhikotakia-morleti Even though you rehomed your discus, Y. morleti are not suitable for the general peaceful community aquarium. This is the sort of scenario that highlights why it i...

Re: keeping a solo clown loach

Hi ontheairship, welcome to Loaches Online. Unfortunately I cannot tell you what you would like to hear. Clown loaches are highly sociable fish and NEED to be kept in groups (preferably 5 or more) for long-term wellbeing. They form a complex social hierarchy and absolutely must have company of their...

Leptobotia elongata in the UK!

Hi all, We took delivery of a shipment of Leptobotia elongata this evening. They are absolutely amazing beasties! These haven't been seen in the UK for some years now, so it was a really special day for us. Here are some pics of the loaches acclimatising, more (better) pics coming soon! http://i921....

Re: CLOWN LOACH VIOLENCE LAST 2 DAYS HELP

Hi LO, This is really unusual behaviour for clowns or striata. I have to wonder if the catfish were ill/dying and that's when the loaches started to pick on them. It's horrible but unfortunately not unheard of for usually placid fish to start picking on sick fish - somehow they know when something i...

Re: Baby Panda Garra!!!!!

Can anyone lend you their camera for a couple of days? Would be great to see more pics. We can get hold of captive bred G. flavatra at about 2cm and they are really sweet so your little one must be unbelievably cute at just a cm or so! And I bet where there is one, there are more..... do you have an...

Re: My rainbow loach from China

Beautiful! 8) This is one of my all time favourite species, I kept some many years ago, but have not seen them available for a long time now. How many do you have? Would love to see some more photos.

Re: Banded Pangio ID

One question someone here might know the answer to - are there any commercial fish exports from the Mahakam river basin? There have been sporadic imports from the Mahakam region in recent times - this is where the newly exported Rasbora lacrimula have been coming in from. But I haven't personally b...

Re:

That sounds interesting. They may be available more often!! :D I doubt it, Jim. I have heard about "new" names on lists, Emma. Here is a photo showing a recent shipment of Gastromyzon viriosus , which is what the supplier said they had!: http://i921.photobucket.com/albums/ad52/CanaryLoach/Fish/DSCN...
