Zebra LoachBotia striata
The Zebra Loach is a lively fish with a peaceful nature and can be kept in a community aquarium. Although the fish will accept almost any foods, a varied diet should be provided. Zebra Loaches are a naturally grouping fish and should not be kept singly in the aquarium. Provide a sandy or fine gravelled bottom and plenty of hiding spots amongst rocks, wood, and plants.
