Gold Dojo Loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus)


An elongated, eel-like loach found throughout much of Asia, the Dojo Loach has been popular in the aquarium hobby for decades due to their active, gregarious nature and unique appearance. More subtropical than most aquarium species, they are tolerant of temperatures into the mid 50-60F range and do best when kept below 75-78F. In the aquarium, they prefer ample hiding places like plants, caves, or rockwork and will do best when kept in groups of 3 – 5 or more. The attractive gold form is a selectively bred strain which shows a uniform bright yellow/orange coloration.
