Those Rosy Loaches are terrific little guys.

Wish I had room for a species tank.

Once they settle in, I have a feeling you're going to want to keep all of them for yourself.

They really are great and people should snatch them up quickly.

They do look cool and fun as hell watching some YouTube videos. Needs open "ground" space, exposed rock or substrate from everything I just read. I have a feeling they would spend all of their time stuck to the glass in my tank - all planted with no open areas.

I am not at all sure what they are, i sent some photographs to Chris Lukhaup over in Germany, and may be sending him a preserved adult male to see if he can figure it out. If he hasn't seen them, it is unusual.

Oh man, now I want butterfly loaches again. How do you think they might do in a shrimp tank?

as long as the shrimp tank has a lot of flow/oxygenation and isn't too warm, they should do fine
