Adding more zipper loaches will help if you`re sure that you got really zipper loaches. Their scientific name is Acanthocobitis urophthalmus, older names are Noemacheilus botia and A. botia. However, make sure that you didn`t mistake it for the tiger loach (Botia helodes/hymenophysa). In that case the trouble might become even worse. This is probably the most aggressive loach.
