"Though I have collected a wide variety of small fish for many years, I only recently purchased a 55-gallon tank with the intention of expanding the number of species I could keep without overcrowding- I generally stick to smaller fish types such as Tetras and Rasboras. Having had a Khuli Loach several years ago for more than a year before it jumped out the tank over a weekend, I knew I definitely wanted more of these stunning creatures. I purchased three of them, and they are simply a joy to have in the tank. Here are the observations I have noticed in the two months I have had them: -They eat anything and are very easy to care for. In particular, they have done an excellent job controlling my snail population, as I have two rather large snails that lay eggs almost every day. However, my Dojos appear to only eat the eggs and newborns. I have a number of snails that are only 4 to 5mm long, and they never bother them. -They never ever bother any of the other fish, including my tiny Dwarf Pencilfish or Neon Tetras. They are very gentle and friendly, and commonly lounge around together or with my corydoras. -They love rooting around in the substrate and dig up even my biggest plants several times a week. They are so fun to watch that this is little more than a mild annoyance for me, though I am still working on getting all my many plants potted. -They jump- keep your tank covered! Apparently they can live for some time out of the tank if they decide to go exploring in this manner, but I personnaly dont take that chance. I have two hatchetfish tetras which are also jumpers so I already have my tank fully covered. "
