My Golden Dojo's slurp too! They often splash and hang out on the floating plants, but I hadn't identified them as the slurpers before. These guys have doubled in size since I got them, from small kuhli size to 5 1/2 to 6 " and they are really beautiful. I am interested to note that they can fold their front fins to almost a flipper like apendage and use them to dig through the gravel/sand. I have also figured out that they are the main plant uprooters. It is funny to see them with 1/3 of their bodies under the sand. I remember reading about slurping loaches, but I thought it was clowns not dojo's. My family think I am obsessed. Facinated, not obsessed. It certainly is less harmful than a lot of other habits and they certainly are more easy to control than dogs. Jayne
