Snails are not just loach food, as much as I love loaches. They can also help clean up excess fry foods & some crap "infusoria", another micro-food for fry.

I see you're getting hooked on bottom feeders, me too. Loaches of almost any type are way cool to me. I've only bred sewellia lineolata (a type of hillstream loach). But I love botia species & others even without breeding them.

I haven't kept dojos yet, they were illegal where I lived before. Most loaches are social & need friends, so you'll need a 4ft tank for 3 or 4.

But lets save that discussion for another thread. If you think I babble about corys, wait until we talk loaches!! They are my obsession!

Many of the clubs I have emailed have no yet replied and have no updates on their website. So I am just waiting to hear a reply from others :)
