holey cow... nice vid find thumbs up

the ones i had went from 2"-7" in 3 years, had to get rid of them because it wasn't fair keeping them in a 120L considering the room they need, but are honestly 1 of my favourite fish and they love snails yep

nice video i saw some 14 inch ones in the london zoo aquairium earlier this year. Just watch your shrimps they might like them as they eat anything that can fit in mouth.

Nice fish, I love these yep the tank in the vid is too small for them loach I reckon you'd be looking for something around the 6ft mark with wave makers for current they really do need a long tank. That's why I had to get rid of mine. thumbs down I never could keep plants with them they just uproot everything. thumbs up

What shrimp do you have? Will be wanting something new in the new year when I eventually get round to my new aquascape that I am planning :)
