    Incredibly attractive fish. How active are they Mark? All the loaches I see in the shops tend to be pretty boring but I’d imagine that’s the conditions they’re kept in?

    The striata are fairly active and inquisitive, it sounds daft to say but the more hiding places they have the more you will probably see them.

    I have just rescaped one of my tanks with cobble piles and caves the full length of the tank and the loaches are out pretty much all of the time and I have sat and watched loaches in the last 2 days that I have only had glimpses of for the last few months.

    I have just replaced all of my lights with Classica FX natural tubes and this seems to have had a favourable reaction from the fish also.

    Nah not daft at all m8 – same with a lot of fish, especially the smaller cichlids. If they feel safe, they’ll be generally happier < {POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Aye I did wonder about my lighting in some tanks. Some fish seem to prefer it dark..

    I think I have weird loaches because all of mine seem to prefer brighter light, mind you with the levels of flow that I have its probably safer for them to keep swimming
