I’m new to the forum Iv been reading through some of the chats to find out more about the behaviour of weather loaches.
I have 2 weather loaches although there not kept together, I have one in my indoor fish tank and one in my pond outside although they both seem quite happy and content in their environment and there’s no odd behaviour from either of them, I would like more information about them, the one in my tank is so fascinating and is accompanied by 3 goldfish with pebble and gravel lining the bottom of the tank he/she does dig through it and hasn’t yet caused itself any harm/injury in doing so it’s been in there for around 6 months it’s never tried to jump out of the tank and feeds really well on floating flakes and sinking catfish pellets all it’s barbels are still intact and it likes to rest on the top of the plant and also likes to hide round the back of the plant, is there anyone in this forum that has a weather loach?
Eventually I will be re-homing the one in my tank into the pond once it’s outgrown the tank.
Hi. It's better to ask questions in the forums. More people will see it.
