The loaches are actually my brothers. I got them when he moved. He put the tank in my room "temporarily" and still hasn't moved it. I just do water changes (those things haven't had regular water changes for 5 years).
I know they aren't in proper conditions at all, though. He has regular gravel substrate, only had a plant and a car decoration (they hid all the time so he didn't put more decor in), and he only has 2 in his ten gallon, plus a plecostamus. I know there should be more, with sand substrate and that its too small for the plecostamus but since its not my tank, I'm not going to fish it. I have added a few more fake plants and started feeding them my NLS as opposed to the Wardley flakes he was feeding them, and they've become more active, but they still stay in the substrate most of the time.
I only have bettas myself, so I wouldn't take my advice on other fish too seriously, lol. It's just what I have read.
Edit: what I'm saying is listen to Jaysee and not me :p but loaches are really cool! I love watching them but they're only active when I feed them. You definitely need more than two and sand substrate plus more decor. Btw, they are Kuhli loaches.
