Loaches

I just came home with a Yoyo loach...I can put it with my female bettas right? I sure hope so :S If not he's still in his bag and I can bring him back.

Yoyo loaches are peaceful fish and just like female bettas are best kept in a group of 5+. A heavy planted tank and some hiding places in which your loach can fit and not feel vulnerable will be great, other than that throw him in, well place humanely

Loaches are shoaling fish and should not be kept singly. If you can get 5+ you can try to keep it with your Berta. Otherwise, he should really go back.

He was living alone in the store anyways so in my opinion he is no better off going back. But I will keep my eye open for more 'friend' for him.
