Botia Eos Concerns

Posted By: Gareth Dominy <gdominy@canada.com>

My Sun Loach (Botia Eos) is really starting to become a handfull. He is more aggressive then the tiger loach, and definately more of a problem then anticipated.

My clowns are getting injured from his persistent harrassment and I don't know what to do. I have the option of transplanting him to the 45 gallon bastard tank, however I really am not looking forward to the 6 hour ordeal to remove all the slate just so I can net him.

Does anyone have FIRSTHAND experience keeping this loach with other loach species? Or perhaps a group of them with other loaches? I don't mind adding another one or two to redirect the attention to the other sun loaches, but I am afraid that they may (as a group) pick on the other fish worse then the one does now.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated,
