Do all loaches have retractable spines under their eyes?With some Botias you can clearly see a cresent shaped line under their eyes.Which loaches are packin' switchblades and which aren't?Is the spine what I was hearing whenever a particularly nasty blue loach charged out of it's cave?I notice when I feed floating food,I can hear a snapping sound.Is this my Lohachata's spines or just my giant Danios' mouths snapping shut?
