Panda loach (Protomyzon pachychilus)

Post by Emma Turner » Tue Sep 27, 2011 5:47 pm

So excited! We have managed to get some Chinese Panda loaches (Protomyzon pachychilus) for our fish room. They are tiny at the moment, 1.7cm TL and are nosing about all over their new home, so it's a bit tricky to get good pics!

In the bag acclimatising:

Will add more (hopefully better) pics soon. :D

What's it's name? Lingling?
