This peaceful loach came from north India and are easily kept in any community tank. Its final size can reach 12,5 cm but in the confines of an aquarium maybe a little less. A pH between 6,0 and 7,4 is a good option for them and the temperature should be between 24-28 C.
Most aquarists suggest to keep them in groups of 3, but I have not experienced any problems keeping them single. I have one of them in each planted tank I have and finally found a natural way to solve my snail problem since they like to eat them and their eggs.
