Food and feeding

Origin

Their natural habitat is South-east Asia (India down to Indonesia) where they are found in the river basins.

Sexing

There is no proven way of sexing Horseface Loaches.

Breeding

As of yet there has been no successful spawning in an aquarium.

Lifespan

If given the correct conditions, they should live up to 5 years.

Short description

The horse face loach becomes active at night and spends most of the daylight hours partially buried in the substrate. They prefer subdued lighting, so the addition of floating plants would be ideal. Adult sizes can reach 12 inches, so these fish are not for small tanks. Live plants should only be added to the aquarium if potted as they do root around in the substrate a lot.
