Alright, I'll be the first to admit it, I really don't know what I'm doing with this little dude. The LFS lady almost killed him trying to stir him up to show him to me, and I honestly had NO clue where I was going to put him when I got him home, only I knew I did not want him going through that nightmare of that lady trying to stir him out of the rocks again.
$4 down, and I took him home. Looked up water type and aggression level, decided he'd be best off in the goldfish tank, which I keep on the cooler side where there's plenty of places for him to hide, etc, etc, etc...
The only thing I've noticed is that the cories are far less active with him in the tank. I don't know if he took their sleeping spot or if he's chasing them around after dark, but they are keeping to the back tank in the quietest corner lately. Usually they bounce around like cute little crazies. They just seem more laid back all of a sudden. Still very interested in food though, so I'm not sure if I need to be worried about them or not. The goldfish just ignore the worm-like creature, which, I've taken to describing him as my tank dragon.
He has taken up preferred residence in the dark under a little bridge I have in there, and unless I'm feeding, that's where I usually see him. Though, today, he found this little hiding spot by the only fake planted plant I have in the tank. (The other fake plant in there is a silk one I use to baffle filter output and hide some of my airline tubing.) The water is somewhat faster moving, with multiple bubblers (3 near the surface and a large one bottomside) and two filter units.
So anyway, no matter where I look I can't seem to figure out what sort of loach this guy is. The LFS doesn't know. They get in 4 at a time. They just know they are "loaches" and that they hide under the rocks in the tetra tank they are kept in at the shop.
Soooooooo..................... I'm gonna attach some pictures! And someone might be able to tell me what he is? Other than cute. ;) He is a little hard to see but... he is a solid chocolate brown color, and about three or four inches long.
CUE PIC SPAM!!!
TL;DR/wheres the pics?
Anyone know what sort of loach this little guy is?
