Lovely loach....and great pic! One of the species I would like to have some day.
How many do you have, what do they share their tank with, what kind of experiences have you had with them?

apparently if you get more than 1 they fight

Maybe if the tank is too small, but usually they like a school of 3-6, depending on tank size.

Hes in the 20g, so i dont want any fights in there. If i could bump him into a bigger tank, i would

I have two. They are in my 40 gallon community tank. There are also a few yoyos in there. Every once in a while the big yoyo will kind of chase someone, but not really. He does not put much effort into it. They seem to be doing pretty well. They have not grown much though.

We have 3 Angelicus. all 3 have very different patterns and are at different life stages. I agree with your filtration comment. We do 50+% on our 75 planted and run an XP3 rena on there that filters 200 gp/h I think it was

that is one good looking fellow...mine has similar patterns, we call mine "crazy" lots of action....great addition to my 75 gallon south american tank...my botia bothers no one else and is always out and active....my tank has driftwood,rocks and plastic plants....my other favorite is my horse face loach...has grown like crazy in my 40 b reeder with my balzanis and zebras....another wonderful addition active and quite attractive for having a horse face lol.....both are my favorite species in each tank
