    Default Striata / Zebra Loach?

    0 Not allowed!
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Striata / Zebra / Candystripe Loach?

    I've heard they are a much more peaceful and practically sized alternative to many other botiine loaches. I had a group of yoyos at one stage and had to give them away because they terrorized my tank.

    According to
    Probably the most readily available of what I would term a ‘small and peaceful species’ would undoubtedly be the Zebra Loach (Botia striata) from India. With a maximum size of 10 cm (4 in) it is much more suited to smaller tanks, and will co-exist peacefully with all other species. It’s glorious pattern of thin alternating black and white bars is eye-catching, and lends itself perfectly to this fish’s other common name of Candystripe Loach. I can’t recommend this species enough!
