More info

An unassuming loach from China, the Hong Kong or Hillstream Loach are popular for their butterfly like fin extensions and physiological adaptations that enable them to cling to rock in fast flowing waters.

Due to their natural habitat of fast rivers, they require highly oxygenated aquaria with high surface turnover, with areas for them to hide. Excess light is encouraged in their set-up, to allow for algae to form on rocks, providing this species with food to graze on. A mixed diet of live, frozen and algae tablets is also highly appreciated, some aquarists choosing to decrease or switch off tank flow at feeding to avoid food becoming trapped or sucked into filter intakes.

For best results, keep them in groups, where their entertaining jostling for positioning allows them to display their natural behaviours.
