Everything loaches/eels

This thread is being started after a go around with Stacey W. About behavior in loaches and certain requirements for them.

Post pics of your loaches/eels!
How do the behave?
What do you feed them?
Got a question? Ask away!

Anything about them this thread will cover it.

I currently have 3 "loaches/eels" I consider Bichir because of their body shape is reletively close.

Like I said to ImACoolguy I have 2 yoyo loaches and 1 angelicus botia. The male is beautiful his name is Boo (yoyo), the female is named Loki (yoyo), and another I do believe is a male Simon (angelicus) cuz he's a follower . Loki is the most boisterous. She has stolen bloodworms from my Keyhole Cichlid's mouth and is very nosey with the other fish.

Here is Boo and Simon in that order. Still trying to get a good pic of Loki. She's always on the move.

I love my Dojo Loaches. They are delightful creatures--wish I'd gotten some a long time ago. So comical! Mine are out and about most of the time, even during the day. They rarely are out of sight. They play, and get boisterous. I feed them sinking wafers, algae wafers, shrimp pellets, french cut green beans, and brocolli. These are their favorite foods, and I rotate them. Both are fat and sassy. They are always the first fish that people notice.

Mine don't ever hurt each other. It looks more like play.

I know clowns can rough up on each other, doing research on dojo.

I don't know how they are together? I've only owned 1. I've read that they are very social with their own kind.

Yeah, my are so funny because they don't have any idea of personal space. They lay on each other and they lay on my panda corys.

From my first pic he also likes to play king of the hill lol. I'll try to get a pic of when he just lays out one plant like my bacopa its think so it supports his weight and he just lazily spreads across it

Missed the part about corys. That's the one species that didn't really work with my dojo. Mainly because of the size differance and like you said about personal space. He stressed mine out because he would just run them over.
