try yoyo loaches

IT's true. yoyo loaches are some of the best snail eaters EVER. theyre a lot like clown loaches but can be kept in a group of liek 3 or 4 and only grow like an inch or two. They are the BEST snail eaters I know. You should look into them. They also look kinda cute

29 gallon freshwater tank - b/n catfish, neon tetras, and 4 gouramis

60 gallon Lake Malawi tank - under construction

Botia almorhae (common name YoYo Loach) attain 6 inches and require a 4-foot tank at minimum. Just want to be certain on this. And they should have a group of 5, although 4 would suffice.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Byron is right I had 5 of these in a 4ft tank and they were about 5 inches long.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
