New Loaches

Post by gulogulo » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:58 am

Just excited to share my new loach purchase with the loach people. Its not the most exciting loach out there but one of my favorites- Pangio oblonga. I picked up 6 at the Greenwater swap on Sunday. I have had these in the past, I had a group that lasted probably 8 or 9 years but its been a few years since keeping this species. That brings my number of Pangio species to 6 and total loach species to 9. This group settled in really well and were out and eating the morning after being released.
Current loach residents- 14 Pangio semicincta, 2 P. doriae, 4 P. myersi, 1 P. shelfordi, 5 P. anguilaris, 6 P. oblonga, 8 P. cuneovirgata 5 Chromobotia macracantha, 3 Gastromyzon ctenocephalus, 3 Gastromyzon species unknown
