Good job, Mo! Why isn't this stickied?
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.comAlso a nice fish i found that does good with bettas are dojo loaches Dojo Loach, Weather Loach, Chinese Weatherfish, Oriental Weatherfish, Japanese Weatherfish, Dojo, Amur, Gold Dojo Loach, Misgurnus anguillicaudatus
Dojo loach-------30gal tank--- and atleast 2 but 3 or more is better
I realy like them with sorority tanks
They are a food fish in Asian because they get so big and taste like eels (mmmm unagi nigiri). They are also invasive in the cooler areas of the US and are illegal to keep in some states (not the southern states because they are not a tropical fish). I love the eely look, but the dojos I had with my goldfish took a liking to the goldfish's slime coats. I had to say good bye to them, but they went to another good aquarist.Dojo loaches are raised for food, I hear.
