How many Yoyo loaches in a 10?

i was gonna buy 3 dwarf puffers for my 10 but i went to an lfs warehouse today and i saw a yoyo! i asked the lady how much it was but she said it was only for display although she's gonna call me when they come in! so i was wondering how many i could fit in a 10 gal with a penguin 125 thanks

Felf...

I have seen pictures of Yo-Yo loaches that are nearly 8 inches long but it must have taken many years for them to get to that size. Zebra loaches have the potential to reach the same size. However, I've never actually seen either of those two loaches get that big.....about 4 inches being the largest I've ever personally seen.

You could house a couple of Yo-Yo loaches (or Zebra loaches) in a 10 gallon tank for quite some time.

though remember Yo-Yo s are socialable fish and would like to be in a group of at least 3.
