Well, maybe what is your favourite Loach when kept in a large group?

Other than Clown Loaches, everyone already should know they are awesome and unique.

If it wasn't for my Clown Loaches I wouldn't have loaches at all. They are my favourite aquarium fish by miles.

No other loaches have the special attraction for me, though many are fine fish.

If not Clown Loaches I would be very attracted to the Red-tailed Black Shark. I like the larger silver-coloured shoaling fish and I also love catfish.

This is a picture of my largest Anthia who is female, 8" long and 17 years old.

WOW...Anthia is a BEAUTY!
I'll bet you look for her every day when you feed!
She is a truly lovely loach. I think it a real responsibility and reward to keep such long lived loaches.
I hope she continues to have a long and healthy life, with your hard work, of course!

17 years! I thought the one I posted earlier was old at 10 or so years.

Thanks guys. Regarding her age, we got into a rhythm and just kept it going.

I'm with starsplitter, though I'd extend it to bottom-feeders in general. I adore loaches, catfish, gobies ...
