Hi, I am new to this forum but it was recommended to me, especially because of a recent experience which I will make a separate post about. I have 7 'borneo suckers', I believe they are accurately named Gastromyzon ctenocephalus or scitulus variety (not sure exactly 100% which) and I think one of the seven is a Gastromyzon zebrinus.

I have also got yoyo loaches (5), and quite a number of kuhli loaches.

And numerous other tropical fish.

I look forward to reading all of the posts & gaining some valuable information on these gorgeous fish. I do truely love all of their antics.

Hello all! I have lurked here for a very long time and referred many people to your site for excellent Loach information.
Currently I am keeping seven types of loach, Clowns,Skunk, Striata, black kuhli, Striped Kuhli, angelicus and yoyos.
Actually they are temporarily staying with a friend as we just moved from one state to another and I am busy setting up tanks in anticipation of all my fishes coming home.
I recognize a couple of names from other sites I frequent amd feel at home already.

Just joined the site. Have recently set up a 30 gallon tank and have 3 Clown loaches that are great fun. Hope to gain some insight into these interesting fish. Hello to all.

Hi all. New here from Aussie. Been browsing & using the site for about a year. Great place !! Recognise a few from other forums. Hi Shari..
I have a large group of Lohacata & just introduced four Berdmorei & yes i know how big they get...lol. These are rather rare in Australia as are most loaches other than clowns & yoyos. I see Striata has made its first appearance in Oz in quite a while. Can't wait till they make it to a lfs near me.
Anyone else keep any of the 'Tiger' loaches ?
