Chinese algae eater

I have what I think is a 3 inch or so Chinese algae eater. I got it free and don't want it. I am in Northwest Indiana. 46356. No shipping. I will be at the GCCA swap Sunday December 7 in Hillside if you want me to bring it. FREE

That's just what I was told it was. Lights are out for tonight. I'll try to get a better pic in the morning. Maybe some sort of birchir?

It almost looks like a loach to me. There are a few slender long loaches - which the body shape looks like from the pics. If you could get a better pic of his face it might help? I know it is hard :/

It is a Dojo Loach aka Weather Loach. Not aggressive. Very hardy. Cool water species. Invasive if releases.

He's good! Loaches are all really gentle. Not sure about Dojo but both clown and kuhli loaches like to be in groups so you might want to consider more down the road if your tank has space

I've housed weather loaches before and they're great and can do well in colder water. Enjoy him/her

What you actually have there is a Java/Black loach. Again very gentle and peaceful. If you only have one I would suggest getting a couple more since they do enjoying being in groups. It makes them less shy and more exciting to have in your tank. Linked below to a good site for them.

Pangio oblonga – Black Kuhli Loach (Cobitis oblonga, Acanthophthalmus javanicus) — Seriously Fish
