Product spotlight: Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki
Common names: "Dwarf chain loach", "sid", "chipmunk loach"
Distribution: SE Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Thailand)
Size: 2.5" (females being slightly plumper than males)
Temperature range: 75-86
pH/hardness: 6-7.8, dh 12 or less
Suitable tankmates: Rasboras, Danios, Devarios
Tank setup: A sandy/soft substrate, driftwood, and plants are preferred.
Behavior: A social species best kept in groups of 10 or more, with 5 being the minimum recommended.
Feeding: Readily accept meaty pellets, flake, frozen, and live foods. A well balanced diet for an omnivore should be fed. They will eat snails, though are not useful for snail control as they are a bit "lazy" at preying on pest snails.
Anecdotal information: I have found that these spend a lot of time in mid-water, especially when paired with a species like Trigonostigma espei, brevibora dorsiocellata, etc. When comfortable, they readily use all areas of the tank and have been known to school with other species in the tank in midwater.
