Rosy Loach (Petruichthys sp.) – Group of 5


A popular and active schooling species, the Rosy Loach is found in shallow waters throughout Eastern Myanmar where it occurs in large groups. An active, outgoing fish perfect for planted or nano aquariums, they are highly social and should be kept in groups of no less than 5 fish. They are constant grazers by nature, and have a fast metabolism so should ideally be fed more than once daily. An ideal community fish for a small aquarium, they should be kept with similarly sized peaceful species.
