Can loaches breed in captivity? I heard that you can't breed them in captivity? Has anyone tried and succeded?

They just seem a tad bit on the gross side to me.

Yes loaches can be breed in aquariums. The differnt species are to be considered hard to very hard to breed.

Two exampels of loach breeding are:
Breeding sand loaches (http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/universal-viewid158.html)
Care and breed Clown loaches (http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/universal-viewid174.html)

Ps. We have a special loach section if you ever should have more loach questions.
