What hooked you?

Perhaps I should say attracted you in light of recent posts:) I am curiuos by nature I suppose and wonder what is it that first attracted everybody to loaches? For me it was the juvinile clown and the lure of raising something new and unknown to me. Caring for this species led to intrest in other botia and then to loaches in general. It is hard to imagine life without now:) My biggest regret is I did not start sooner. I ask this because I want to encourage more aquarists to keep loaches. The more people who do the better we can understand them and the more likely that breeding will become within all are grasps. Also I think the more intrest there is in loaches the more available they become to everyone. Reverse logic ...demand = supply. With all the specialized aquarium societies that can be found why not one for loaches. I know this road has been traveled before and intrest seems to be at the root. Id intrest can be raise the rest will follow I think. So what got you intrested? BB
