Tomorrow, I am getting my first Vaillantella Maassi which will be introduced into a new 20L i've been cycling with Tiger Barbs. These are such incredible fish. As far as common names go, I've seen this fish be called the "Chocolate Long-Finned Loach", the "Flame Loach", and the "Chocolate Wave Loach". "Wave", I would assume, comes from the snakelike movement of its extremely long dorsal fin, almost like that of a Jamaican Knife Fish. But, I admit, "Dragon Loach" is a VERY good common name, I'm partial to it. If anyone can't get ahold of these incredible fish, and would like to, let me know. I'll see what I can do, as I think anyone with the urge to care for an EXTREMELY unique loach should be able to. Let me know.
