Got a couple of snaps of my weather loaches, one hanging out in my amazon swords, the other at the front of the tank smiling for the camera. I love them, what you guys think thumbs2:

Cheers for the great feedback guys! I love em, not fancy or colourful looking, but they have a certain 'new puppy' factor too them. They happily sit up on their pectorals and stare out of the glass. Also they arent scared of you, when faffing in the tanks the bigger one will happily swim over my hand or allow me to touch him. thumbs2:

They're awesome fish, Scotti. The one I had grew to around 6" long. I named him Kato - named after the Kato excavators! :hmm3grin2orange: He used to constantly dig everything up in the tank. Waste of time having plants in there! Every day, I'd be replanting them. thumbs2:

Haha :hmm3grin2orange: Mines aren't named, as you can see though they love plying in and around the plants thumbs2:

Well, I hope you enjoy them! I used to love watching Kato snuffle around along the bottom of the tank, then all of a sudden he'd bust into loop the loops! :hmm3grin2orange:

Like the one peeking it's head out of the Amazon. Looks like, "Is it safe"?

Mines do headstands, like they find something they want to investigate in the substrate, start to burrow, end up full body vertigal, then give up and cruise away haha:hmm3grin2orange:

Sounds cool. Like the cartoon of the ostrich with it's head in the sand, when it was frightened.
