About 2 weeks ago I purchased what i thought were 2 yoyo loaches - from same tank etc - not had these fish before, and although one had darker more typical markings, I thought that the paler one was just a colour variation and the poor guy in fish shop had such a problem catching them, that i thought - oh well, i would have liked 2 striking ones, but....
Anyway, from the minute they were in the tank, it was obvious that they had totally different characteristics and temperaments - the obvious yoyo was confident immediately, exploring everywhere, having little chasing games with other fish, quick to go for food,....paler loach was a lot shyer, liked to nose in the sand,and rest under a crack under the bogwood, with just eyes shining to show he was there.
As i say, ive had them for 2 or 3 weeks, and the 'obvious' yoyo is now much fatter, and bigger and the 'pale guy'
