New fish

Just got a new butterfly loach
My god this thing is beautiful!
I had to drive almost two hours to get him but it was worth it!
I'd have a better pic of him in the tank but he's really hard to find

These do best in cool water with high flow. They are a high oxygen fish.

My friend's Hillstream Loaches had babies in her river tank. She has powerheads and grows Algae for them and feeds Repashy gel.

Lovely fish, I agree.

That's a really cool fish. I'm not a huge fan of cold water fish but every time I see this fish I fall in love with it.
