Agent, in your pics some of the loaches look like yoyos and some look like botia striata. That close up pic definitely looks like botia striata. Maybe you have a mix of both in your group.

A 240 sounds like fun!

Jaysee, nice bichir. How big is it and what tankmates do you keep with it?

Yea.. I was on the fence about the angelicus loaches when they were smaller. Thought they were yoyos too. As they got bigger the pattern developed into definite angelicus patterns .. Which is what they were sold as but I didn't believe it at first lol. Yes.. I have four angelicus and four botia striata . The two groups have meshed well and are crazy fools

I've been telling her the "Angelicus" looks like a yoyo with no Os.

I can't wait for our 240 😍

My bichir is 8-9 inches and lives with pictus cats, silver dollars, cichlids and a BGK at the moment. Got some other fish in mind though some I may wait till I move.

Jaysee, American cichlids? Just curious because I've considered getting a bichir for my 135 gallon which has CA cichlids. But i hesitate because I have a 10" black shark in there who's pretty territorial.

sorry to hijack your thread, Agent. Like you, I also like the aggressive fish. Lol

Haha.. Hijack away. I don't mind at all. I'm just on here showing pics and talking about fish.
I'm fairly certain Jaysees bichir would handle your tank no problem. As would my ornate bichir. However with the ornate it depends on which CA cichlids you have. I don't think the shark would be an issue. I adore my ornate... He's mean but generally ignores the cichlids in with him and vice versa. Here is a pic from today of my rather young ornate.

Yeah American. I have a chanchito in there now, who needs someone to keep him in check. I'm not entirely sure where he will end up but I am getting an oscar and perhaps some fire mouths. Because of the growth rate of the oscar I'm probably going to wait till I'm down in NC to get it.

The bichir bites at the tails of the pictus and silver dollars but they grow back fine.
