In Response To: why does my sand loach look like a Banana (Hyp)

I have noemacheilus species that will pearch atop rock out stiffen themselves to the point that the tail appears to be arched upwards. I look at it as if they were sunning themselves:) It's cute to see them like that with the barbels fluttering in the current of the water. Never had a backup artist tough. I wonder if it's a prequel to some breeding? That would be fantastic! BB
