Thanks for all your comments and help with the ID guys! :D
They seem to be feeding ok, so hopefully I'll be able to get more pictures in due course. It's always a real treat when unexpected loaches turn up. 8)

Vietnamese Hillstream Loaches

Hi all, Thought you migt like to see some pics of the hillstream loaches that came in directly from my Vietnamese supplier last week. They had them simply listed as " Homaloptera sp" and they have said they were collected from the River Nam Cat Tien in Lam Dong province. Sadly, they arrived in bad c...

Wow! Lovely photos of the 'algae party' and of your chocolate gouramis, Hendra! 8) Can I ask you what the pH and hardness is of the water in your tanks? Also, would you know what the pH and hardness of the water in a typical Kalimantan river would be? If you have any information on this I would be r...

It probably depends on the size of your loaches, and the numbers you keep, but my huge shoal of Clowns munch their way through everything except Java Fern (which supposedly tastes bitter to most fish). Even then, I do find the odd leaf floating here and there with a few holes in it. And it's not lik...

Hi Sophie! In the past we have used Sterazin in tanks that contained Botia without any problems, but do not have any experience in using it with Pangio sp. Having said this, I would still advise caution when using this treatment with any kind of loach, your best bet probably being adding half the re...

Hi Andyroo, We have found that certain families of fish seem to carry more mucus than others.
