overview
The Dojo Loach originates within the Rivers, Lakes, and Ponds of Asia and is farm raised for the aquarium industry. Loaches are bottom dwelling scavengers with reduced or absent scales and a mouth surrounded by barbels in which they use to find food. They have an elongated, smooth body that is gold to pink in coloration. They are peaceful and very efficient scavengers that will make a welcome addition to any community aquarium.

The Dojo Loach requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places and water temperatures that range between 68 and 76 degrees. They do well in a planted aquarium, but larger specimens may uproot plants in their search for food. Gold Dojo Loaches are peaceful, and will not typically bother other fish in the aquarium. They make excellent tank mates for fancy goldfish. Use caution when housing them with small invertebrates such as Ghost or Japonica Amano Shrimp.

The Dojo Loach is largely carnivorous, preferring freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as frozen and live meaty foods of all types.

Approximate Purchase Size: 2" to 4"
