This loach is an excellent choice for the community aquarium. It doesn't grow too large, is full of character and, unlike most loaches, it is not aggressive. It is also unusual in the fact that it will spend much of it's time in mid water rather than on the bottom.
If you couple this all together with its stunning pattern and colour, there is nothing to dislike about this friendly shoaling loach.
