I even cycled a tank with yoyo loaches. (compatibility problems and they had to be moved) The only one that died, was the one hiding in removed decor during water change day, and the dog got it!
Very hardy fish!

Yoyos (Botia almorhae) are some of the nuttiest, crazy playful loaches I've ever seen.
I need to hunt down a previous winner of "picture of the month". It was a trio of yoyos poking their heads out from underneath a shell. Really cute!

Very very very cute indeed. That's an awesome picture. Thanks for posting it.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Lovely kymmie, great photo. The playful species of loaches are fun. They're cuter than 2 of my 3 woodcats peeking out of their tunnel (below).

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]

ok, Now I know what yoyos are, cool. Cut too.
Woodcats? Never heard of 'em. Glad to see 'em in your driftwood.
