Botia dario compatibility

Post by Loachsome » Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:48 am

I have a moderately planted 15 gal with mostly indian natives. Stock list: (9 white clouds, 3 erethistes pusilus, 1 pseudolaguvia riberoi, 1 sicyopterus griseus). I'm holding on to 6 melanotaenia australis for A friend but they'll go soon. Can I add 5 botia dario in this tank? Or any indian native loach?

Oh, I think your tank is way too small to add any loaches. I'll have to look up some of your fish but still...the tank is too small. Sorry, I know that's not what you hoped to hear.

My Botia Darios are very active fish. I have them in a 75 g and absolutely could not imagine them in a 15 g.

Hey thanks for the replies. I'll pass on the botia dario but will any other loach work? Or is my tank fully crowded?

I'm particularly looking at mesonemacheilus triangularis or nemacheilus corica as the other loaches.

Thanks in advance.
