Yo yo loaches are great little snail eaters. I want to get a couple to add to the snail death squad.

They are very neat looking ,I love there markings.Apparently they are tough as well.When I debagged them into my acclimation container I left them alone for 5 mins and came back,lo and behold in the pitcher there was only 2 ,not 3.I thought oh no 1 jumped,I looked at the empty bag and there the little guy was stuck!I put him in the water and a half hour later he was still goin!will they eat malaysian trumpet snails?

I once had a single yoyo loach and it was very very active at first, then it went into hiding and did not come out for a long time, but eventually I lost it.

When it was active, it used to each a lot of the pellet food that I fed my fishes and I have no idea why it was dead.

My YoYo loach, when it was on its own, was pretty depressed I think, so I got him a little buddy, & they are very active.

They even follow my finger around the outside of the tank! Cool little things
