Wow, what awesome pics!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

I don't think I've seen enough of them to really make a call but it seems about 50/50 right now. They will all bump into each other in typical loachy fashion. Sometimes the stripys follow the browns and sometimes they both ignore each other. One thing I haven't seen is them all resting together in tight hidey spots. They all rest together behind the L shaped driftwood, tho. I think only time will tell.

Just ask around and you'll get a million reasons to love them! Mine can get really active right after a water change or when a bad storm is approaching. Plus. They are just too adorable to watch eat!

Who wants to be part of the loachy fanclub?!

So video. I ended up taking about a 5 minute video tonight which will take probably the whole night to upload to youtube. But it's on the way! And all the new little loaches came out! So consider this a teaser.
