Zodiac Loach


Zodiac Loach

Latin Name: Mesonoemacheilus Triangulus.

Water Qualtity: Will require a water temperature between 20°C - 26°C with a pH of 6.5 - 7.5.

Compatability: Best kept in groups of 3 or more so any agressive behaviour between themselves isn't just endured by one individual. Any species that inhabit middle or upper levels of the aquarium are suitable tank mates.

Diet: Omnivorus so a mixed diet of sinking pellets/ dried foods, frozen bloodworm, brineshrimp and daphnia will be required for optimal health.

The Zodiac Loach is known from the river systems either side of the western Ghats in Kerala and Tamil Nadu states.
