I love Zebra loaches which are cousins to the skunk loach, and I don't know why chain loaches[also a cousin] are so expensive 6 for 66 at my lfs

I wish I could find that video of the huge pile of clown loaches. It was years ago when I found it. But here is an adorable video of kuhli loaches. I would love to have a setup like this. I think I even see a betta in the background.

Those were serpentine loaches. The ones you saw at Walmart were deep-bodied botine loaches. There are many different kinds of loaches. Loaches Online This is my favorite website for loaches. They have a picture index where you can look at pictures of all the different species of loach. It's a bit hard to find but here it is Photos ; Loaches Online

@ loaches.com

Do you mean hillstream loaches? They are a pretty exotic fish. Not exactly my taste, but they are neat none the less.

Awh those loaches are adorable. The ones at petsmart are just brown, but those ones have such pretty colours! :D

Hillstream loaches are one of my favorite fish, actually. I would love to have 2. But they are not suitable for a betta tank. They need coldwater, and double filtration with a fast current, since they live in fast water they have high oxygen needs. That's also why they look like little suction cups. I'd love a tank with these guys and the galaxy rasboras.
