Looking for a Coldwater "sucker fish".....
Hiya.. on my way to look for a nice algae eater today, had the idea given of weather loaches but wondered if there were any others to keep my eye out for.. I have a 48g tank at the mo so dont want something that will outgrow this (as a bigger tank wont fit in the room lol) any advice greatly appreciated.. thanksss xx

Hillstream loaches but they are best kept in specialist river setups as they needed plenty of oxygen and powerful currents to thrive.
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

One assumes your ambient temperature is higer than you'd like it to be, and that the cold half of the year, you'll have it around 65-68. That said, if you make sure there's some current and you oxygenate well, hillstream loaches are a good deal. They do like to be in a group though. Alternately, Bulldog plecos are from the Andean foothills, and thrive in water in the 68-72 range.
Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
I know .. the temp is high, fish seem fine tho.. can only put it down to the nice weather weve been having. We did have a lovely hillstream loach for a long time a while ago and he was great to watch but would like a change this time lol Just took the temp again while its nighttime and lights are off and its still at 79.4 (ive got a feeling the thermometer is a bit dodgy bcuz it doesnt feel that warm.) Didnt find a fish the other day so still on the hunt lol ill keep you posted. xx
