What is this?



A friend gave me this. It was from his aunties who has sadly passed away. Trouble is it is attacking all my other fish. I've had to put it in a seperate tank which is way to small. I am moving in 2 weeks & can't afford a bigger tank just now... help! Xxx

Hard to say from the pic, but it looks like a weather loach.

Do these ones make it easier & if it is then what is the best way to care for it. In my main tank I have 2 red tail minnows, a Molly, 2 white cloud mountain minnows, 2 platys & a small goldfish (the one with 2 tails, this is temporary till I have another large tank) the tank is 100l. This fish is around 10cm & is currently in a 17l tank which I know is too small xxx

Never heard of a loach like this being non-communal?

Nor me. Maybe it was used to being on its own. Definitely a weather Loach.

Could it possibly be a Margined Madtom?

This link mentions under notes that it can get aggitated during changes of barometeric pressure. That they prefer cooler water and they like friends and get large!

Aggressive?! That's really strange...I love dojos (This is a golden(or silver in this case) dojo loach, aka weather loach) but I have never heard of them being aggressive...
