Auction is for one Zebra Loach

Scientific name: Botia striata

Tropical Fish

Its relatively small size and peaceful nature make it an excellent choice for most community settings.

Care: A peaceful, active, shoaling species that should be maintained in groups of 5 or more in the community aquarium. Keep on a fine sandy substrate in order to protect the delicate sensory barbel area, and ensure that there are plenty of hiding places in the aquarium amongst bogwood, caves, and plants. Clean, well-aerated water is a must.

Feeding: Will accept most brands of dry sinking catfish pellets, but should be offered a variety of frozen foods to supplement the diet - mosquito larvae, brineshrimp, and daphnia are usually taken with much enthusiasm. Vegetable matter such as slices of cucumber will also be appreciated. This species, as with other Botiine loaches, will eat small aquatic snails

Water parameters: Soft and slightly acidic is best. pH: 7.0 or below, dH: <12 degrees

Temperature: 73F to 81F (23-27C)

I am away Tuesday 29th - Friday 1st June so no fish or plants will be couriered in this time I will do my best to get them all out Monday4th and Tuesday 5th June (I will try to get hubby to send dry stock if possible)
