I have a very amusing but worthless loach. Perhaps you all could shed some light.
I got a yoyo a couple weeks ago particularly to deal with snail control. I love loaches. They have great personalities and normally are very good about eating snails. However, my little guy doesn't care the least for snails. He prefers fish food it seems...and eats with my angelfish at the top during feeding time. He also tries to school with them. He is the only loach in the tank. I have watched carefully, and he will even sift through gravel looking for food and pass up snail after snail.
He has the markings of a yoyo and he fits the description, was sold as one. Looks like every other yoyo I have seen. He was the last one left for sale, so I only got the one. He seems to not like the yoyo recommended diet. Is it possible that he has sympathized with my other fish since he is the only loach? Anyone ever seen this? If I get another yoyo or other type of loach, anyone think he might start doing his job?
He has a lot of personality, but I don't think he knows that he is not an angelfish.
