Asia; these loaches are found in the fast flowing steams around China.


There are no visible differences between the sexes.


As of yet, there are no reported cases of Sinibotia superciliaris breeding in the aquarium.


The expected life span for Sinibotia superciliaris is 5-8 years.

Short description

As Sinibotia superciliaris live naturally in fast flowing water, they will appreciate a water current in the aquarium. Excellent filtration is required with well oxygenated water. Add plenty of flat stones and pebbles to the tank; these fish love to hide in small crevices. There is a golden morph now appearing and it is believed to be the same species.
