Kubotai shmubotai

One noisy loach!

I think I know why though.

All night long one of these cute lil fellas swims upside down at the surface of the water making 'smoochy' sounds. The other night I was wondering if there was insufficient oxygen in the tank or what????? Turns out we've got these tiny brown bugs that live on the surface. I think the 'angelicus' aka kubotai loach is grazing bugs. There may be some other reason, so I'll just have to keep an eye on the situation.
