Bought a couple of weather loaches this past weekend 1 is fairly long and kind of fat the other one is a little thinner and shorter. Should these be put together or keep them seperate? Right now the small one is in my 29 and the larger one is in my 55. They are pretty neat fish, never had one before but they are very interesting to watch.

No I had a canon digital camera a few months ago and decided to take it back to save for a DSLR and wouldn't you know it I lost my wallet with 200.00 in it, that will teach me to take back the camera, at least I would have something to show for the money. I've read that they should be in a tight lid aquarium and if not they may jump out is this true and does this happen quit often.

they are pretty active, I had a group of them but My other loaches in the tank didnt like them too much, One day I saw something sticking out of the sand and I went over to see what it was and it was a head of one of the weather loaches!! it was sweet he completely burried himself and just had his head sticking out.
