Awww. It makes me miss mine. I love the WCMM. I'd like to have some one day. Once I pulled the dojos out of the goldfish tank I wanted to combine them with a school of WCMM, but then I learned that dojos need a much larger tank than I have. So now I'm thinking about putting them in riverine tank with panda loaches one day.

I need more WCMM. I had 6 but the others died. I never did figure out why. Just the next day, gone. I think the WCMM are even prettier than neons. I really love mine. Even though I've never seen them eat. Ever.

@Sakura8 I love my WCMM's! Mine are crazy eaters, the flakes just disappear.

mattoboy, I'm so glad yours eat! Even when I had a proper school of 6, they never came up to eat. They just swam around no matter what I tried. I can only guess that my 2 remaining WCMM survive eating the wafers I put in for the dojos.

Izzy, it's a lousy pic but maybe you can tell what kind of loach this is? It was sold to me as a peppered dojo loach but I don't think it's a dojo. It isn't getting any longer and it doesn't act like a dojo at all. It's really skittery and hides a lot. Sorry, it's washed out because it's on pale sand.

When it was on black gravel, it looked closer to this:

This website says it's a peppered loach, cobitis taenia.

It's certainly not a dojo loach. You're right about that. He's a real cutie, tho. As for the actual species, I can't really be sure, and we may never know with certainty. I had a "contaminate" loach species in with my kuhli loaches and was stuck between two species until the day he died.

Does he look like any of the loaches from these pages? Nemacheiline type loaches or Elongate Nemacheilline

This was another possibility that I found: Lepidocephalichthys guntea

He looks most like the L. guntea. I have so many fish that I never see eat. My WCMM and this guy. Maybe I should change his name to Mystery.

Here's my crazy snail, I once tried to get another snail the same size and he mated with it so much the snail died D: It's been a while and I just realized he's doubled in size since I've had him, anyway I decided to get 2 more mystery snails, a blue and black. The blue mystery snail immediately goes off exploring and the black sits still.
I was surprised by how my gold mystery snail acted, before the new snails had touched the bottom his antenna where out(which he never does since he fish used to bite them) and he goes straight across the tank and immediatly starts mating with the black mystery snail within a minute of it being in the tank. The poor thing hadn't even moved yet.
