Title: rainbow shark
Description: The Yoyo loach (Botia almorhae) has many names. They are also referred to as Almorha Loach, Reticulated Loach or Pakistani Loach. The Yoyo is an Asian species native to India, Bangladesh and Nepal. In the wild, youngsters typically inhabit downstream water sources, whereas the adults tend to be found in highland streams. They prefer water sources with calm, slow moving currents and lots of rocks or fallen branches which provide shelter. They are not recommended for beginner fish keepers due to their feisty nature and need for low lighting. Availability Most reputable aquarists will not sell Yoyo loaches to new fish keepers. As such, they are not generally stocked in large numbers, however, your local fish store should be able to source them for you relatively quickly. They are a more expensive option, with an average price per fish of $4 (£3.50). That being said, more online aquarists are selling Yoyos, so they are more readily available than they were even 5 years ago. Yoyo Loach Lifespan The healthy age range of a Yoyo loach is 5 to 8 years, though many fish keepers note having their loaches for up to 10 years. To ensure your Yoyo lives a long and happy life, be sure to provide a suitable tank with stable water parameters and carefully managed diet.
