Which are the most compatible fish with zebra loach?
Hey there, im not quite sure if its zebra loach. I reckon gourami would go alright with him. I wouldn't put anything in that's too small like tetras, barbs. but maybe even platies or swordtails would go well
For true compatibility always select fish that require the same kind of alkaline water conditions. This restricts your choices to " fish from the same or similar sources". ie other Africans. It is easier to say what fish are not compatible. The answer to that is Most Fish are not compatible with 'Africans' and fish from the 'Amazon' are probably the least compatible.
No! The betta fish might pick on the loach but it cannot "eat a loch whole", a loach can sometimes bury itself under aquarium sand or hide under aquarium decor, most loaches are shy, and prefer swimming at the bottom. Some are nocturnal, your loach is probably hiding somewhere. Bettas have small mouths and cannot really eat anything whole if it is more than a few millemetres across. Plus, a betta's stomach is only as…
It's easier to say they are good community fish that are compatible with most normal tropical fish. They are not compatible with fish that need special water conditions like Discus or African Cichlids. They are also not suitable to be mixed with large predators like Oscars or Arowanas who would hunt and eat them.
You have really small snails in your fish tank and they are killing all your fish does anyone know how to get rid of them or why and how they got there?
You cannot put a black kuhli loach in a 5 gallon tank at all, they need a 10 gallon tank at the very least. The maximum size that this loach gets is about 4-5 inches, so a 5 gallon is out of the question. As far as I have read, the black kuhli loaches like to be in schools of about 3-4, and you wouldn't want to have them alone, since the are community fish…
