A friend of mine in another city was sold over 60 loaches for next to nothing. My question is should all these guys be in the same tank? Me thinks some are alittle aggressive.
The list:
7 Clown loaches
> 5 Botia Kubotia
> 6 Botia Striata
> 3 Botia Dario
> 3 Horseface Loaches
> 15 Botia Sidthimunki
> 9 Botia modesta
> 2 Botia Lecontei
> 1 Botia Helodes 7"
> 4 Skunk Loaches
> 2 Sun Loaches (botia eos)
> 3 yo yos
> 3 botia robusta
Man I want 4 or 5 of those Sids for my lonely guy.
Anyhows what are peoples thoughts on all of these loaches together in a 40 gallon tank? Okay okay its a 120 gallon;-)
It is also over filtered. Thanks all
