Will a single Yo-Yo Loach be OK?

I think it would be somewhat novel to control my budding snail problem by adding a snail eating fish.

I like what I have read about dwarf loaches and yo-yo loaches and I would like to get one, but my community tank is already a bit full - so I only want to get one.

My LFS has Yo-Yo loaches....so I might get one...assuming the loach experts here think one isnt a bad idea.

I've had one Yo-yo Loach for over a year and a half. He was great, seemed very health and ate his fair share of snails!
You just have to watch out, some Yo-yo loaches don't play nice with the other fish. You may get a mean one, but I haven't got a mean one yet though.
I say get one, they have a intresting personality! You will soon be a loach fan.

I had 2 yo-yos a few years ago in a small (10 or 15g) tank and they loved to chase each other around(more playing). I don't know how they would do alone, but it seems that, like many fish, they prefer "friends" to hang out with. I had 1 kuhli loach once as well and he didn't seem to do as well. I had him for a while(maybe 1 yr) and then he just died. He also stayed pretty well hidden most of the time. Anyway, hope this helps.
