I know some people who have, but buyer beware, most people don't realize they only look like that as a baby, once they reach adult, they turn brown

Its as mord says they turn brownish. But they look great as juvies. lol...they seem to be shrimp safe, they're mouths are very small. But I assume if they can eat a baby caridina, then be careful.

Default Panda loach

Thank you for the head up.
How strange they turn out like that when they get older.

Here's a article from TFH, people that obtain these fish should definitely try to breed these fish as there is limited habitat for these fish and over collection could result in them being extinct. They are very cool looking fish and hopefully someone will have success breeding them in captivity.
