Hillstream loaches need High Flow, high oxygen. Best in a species tank. My friend just bred them and babies are popping up.

She grows algae on smooth rounded rocks in shallow water in the windowsill. But their favorite food is Rapashy gel.

Awesome fish, but special needs.

I've heard that they also like cooler water.

Yes, thank you, I forgot to mention that cooler water also holds more oxygen.
My friend's tank is unheated.
