Hi all, I'm quite new to loaches, but last saturday, I decided to go to my local pet store and get some clown loaches. They did have some, but they were a bit expensive( about 7$) so instead i bought a single Zebra botia(the only one they had). I like it very much, and i've always wanted a zebra, but are they supposed to live in shoals? It is also VERY active and constantly in the front of the tank. It swims from the bottom to the surface all the time like a yo yo, is this the normal behavior? I've read it was a shy fish, but he's definatly not. If anyone have or know where i can find some information on this wonderful fish, i would greatly appreciate it.
