Sho here is, to all appearances, our resident hillstream loach expert, much like DiscusPaul seems to be the resident discus expert. Tons of posts I've read, and yeah.Make sure to have plenty of algae because if you do not, it will most likely not survive. Might want to lower the temperature too as they tend to prefer the low 70s. They're not as active in high temperatures and do not last long. Plus they are more picky to feed than other hillstream fish, will hide a lot of the time, and prefer to be in groups.
