Thanks. Most likely because of the incorrect information when it was first made. but hopefully it will be stickied as there are still constant answers about betta compatibility with fish such as neons

They are really neat, but dojo loach (also called weather loach) are actually a poor tankmate for betta. They will grow around a foot long, need 50+ gal tanks, and don't thrive in tropical tanks. Keeping them at temperatures above 75F will shorten their lifespan. Not to mention a fully-grown dojo could easily eat a betta. DojoLoach (M. anguillicaudatus) at Loachesonline.com and WeatherLoach (M. anguillicaudatus) at SeriouslyFish.com

If you want a serpentine loach to be kept with betta, try going for a loach of the Pangio genus. Just make sure they are kept in groups of 6 or more and have lots of hiding spaces.

I have owned dojo loaches for 5+ years and not one has ever got near a foot long, top i have seen is 6 inches and he has been liveing in a 35gal tank for about 4 and a half years, and never once tryed to eat anyfish. Some of the fish i have had them with were fry from guppies, swordtailes.

Hey won't get to a foot long due to the limited amount of room. There growth harmonies would build up in the water and at a certain level. They stop growing on the outside an become stunted while there internal organs keep growing resulting in long term deformation

Ya they are raised for food over in other countries, but they realy dont look very tasty lol. I would much rather watch them dig through the sand in my tank then to eat one.
