A couple of my loaches

If you can stand a shaky camera and quick movements hehe. Kymmie's loach recommendation was one of the deciding factors when I chose them... so, thanks! They are a pleasure to watch... this video doesn't really come close to doing them justice.

I'm so glad you love them, I knew you would! Those loaches are in heaven in that tank, love the substrate. Your tank looks great.

Thanks for the tank compliments!

I'm a bit interested to see what happens with the loaches and rasboras once the loaches are fully grown... I have seen them chasing them around and wonder if they might one day turn the rasboras into food...

Highly doubt that. They are still really young and have a tendancy to go all over the tank when juvies. As they get older they tend to stay in the bottom half of the water column. I've never see mine above the midline of the tank as adults. My yoyos are huge, full grown, and I've got a large shoal of cardinals in the tank and they could care less about the cardinals.
