So I was was wondering if I will get similar personality out of zebra loaches as I did from dwarf chain?
Someone grave me some great advice when I was setting up my tank to add more structure higher in he tank - I've achieved this easily by stacking rocks and lots of driftwood. The zebra's will cruise "high" so long and there is something to keep their bellys glued too.
I also have golden zebras and they pretty much do the same thing.
I loved them & wished I could have gotten more than 6, but that's all I found at that time. They were a spur of the moment purchase, I bought all they had. I had never seen them in lfs before, they were labelled as yoyos
They were ~1.5 inches & only grew to 3+ inches. I have since seen them several times ~4+ inches. I had them for about 5 or 6 years or so, it seems like they should have grown faster. I often, but not always, treat new botiids with a wormer in quarantine. I don't remember if I did for those 2 species, it might have helped, if they had internal parasites that could have stunted them. Or maybe they're just really slow growers, I don't know.
I would definitely like to keep striatas again
I also kept histrionicas, they were not shy at all...except for the 1 that lived in the power head,
