No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship.

Not so small that they will not do well when shipped.

Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

Comments: These are all Premium Pet Fish, and we never see Premium Fish like these in any of the live fish brick-and-mortar stores or the online stores that we visit. Premium Pet Fish are more energetic, hardier, and have brighter colors with a beautiful metallic sheen. Click here to learn more about Premium Pet Fish.

Origin: The Zebra Loach is caught in the Western Ghats of India, which is a mountain range that runs parallel to the western coast of the Indian peninsula, and these fish now live in aquariums throughout most of the world.

The Golden Zebra Loach is caught in Eastern India,  Burma, and Western Thailand.

The Redtail Zebra Loach is caught in the area along the border of Burma and Thailand

Maximum Sizes: listed above in the yellow table.

Behaviors: these various Zebra Loaches are all active swimmers and quarrel gently with each other but are rarely aggressive. They need to have a cave to hide in and spend a lot time hidden away to then come out and flash their beautiful colors and pattern. Sometimes they pile on top of each other or lie on their side, look sick or dead.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include Barbs, Rainbowfish, Danios, Gouramis, and many other small to medium size aquarium fish. Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: They live well from about 75 to 80+ degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable at about 78 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Flakes when very small and small Premium Pellet Food when larger. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: all of these Zebra Loaches seem to be tolerant of a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 6.5 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US has a higher pH and is harder but seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: It is probably best to house these fish in at least a 30-gallon tank, when they're less than 3" long, but a bigger aquarium is almost always better for the fish.

Decor: Zebra Loaches do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live Plants are beautiful and improve the water quality. Zebra Loaches seem to do better in aquariums with live plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 200B in an aquarium with 30-gallons of water is OK to start with a few Zebra Loaches that are less than 3" long. At 3" long Zebra Loaches should move into a 40 to 60-gallon aquarium with a Penguin 350B.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: Zebra Loaches can live for quite a few years, if they're fed premium food and kept in a large aquarium with very fresh water.

Gender: As they mature females become larger and plumper than males who are raised in the same group.

Breeding: There've been a few reports of Zebra Loaches spawning in aquariums, but it's rare.

Popularity: Zebra Loaches are somewhat popular and should really be more popular.

Names: The scientific names are given in the yellow table above.

Variations: Each of these Loaches occurs across a wide region and there are distinct populations with different markings.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.
