    The Yo-Yo Loach is a cream colored fish with black markings that look like a repeating pattern of alternating y's and o's. It is for this reason that the fish earned the name "yo-yo" loach. The tail and fins are transparent with a few gray markings.

    The Yo-Yo Loach is a peaceful fish that is well suited for most community aquariums. It is nocturnal, but will often come out during the day once it has become accustomed to the aquarium. This fish is not a fussy eater and will accept a wide variety of foods.

    It can be kept alone or in groups, but prefers small schools of its own kind. This fish is relatively hardy if kept in an aquarium that is well maintained, and will live many years.

    My Botia is out a great deal of the time in my 55 gallon tank. He gets along with all the fish just fine. He likes to lay in the doorway on the sunken helicopter I have in the tank and watch what goes on in the livingroom.

    awesome looking fish. loves to hide. i never see him though. i thought i lost him but when i was cleaning under a few decorations he showed himself. i think being so small and by himself he's shy. i want to try 2 more and see if that makes him more comfortable in the community tank.

    These fish are amazing. After 5 days of introducing two cute Yo-Yo loaches my snail infestation is totally gone. The last 4 month I have not spotted 1 snail!
