I have three zodiac loaches and once they get used to the tank they come out more and are really fun to watch.

    Really? They only get 3" long, and they're absolutely gorgeous.

    I love this fish. It was very hard for me to find one around me. Most dealers online are out of stock and very expensive when adding shipping and handling to the price. I luckily found one at LFS by me. Mine isn't so much nocturnal and doesn't hide as much (I have lots of caves and places to hide), my black kuhli loaches are a lot more nocturnal and hide a lot more than my batik loach. They only come out when it's feeding time whereas my zodiac loach is out in the open for most of time. Sometimes I see my zodiac loach swimming in the middle of the tank, but most of the time it is hanging out on the bottom.
