I spotted these guys at the lfs and had to grab some. I've never seen them in seven years of loach obsession, but no doubt they're common elsewhere. There seem to be two types by the markings, dorsals etc, and I've looked in the species index but can't put a name to them.
What I would love to know is:
a) what are they?
b) what conditions do they require (temp,substrate,flow, high oxygen?) etc. I'm hoping they'll slot into a river type tank.
c) what do they most like to eat?
d) are they aggressive - with each other or other species?
