The Dojo Loach is an ideal addition to a planted aquarium, since they help to maintain the tank’s cleanliness and can provide an interesting and entertaining presence. They are a peaceful species and make excellent tank mates for fancy goldfish. However, use caution when housing them with small invertebrates such as Ghost or Japonica Amano Shrimp. It is important to provide the Dojo Loach with a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places and water temperatures that range between 68 and 76 degrees. They can be quite active fish, so be aware that larger specimens may uproot plants in their search for food.

The Dojo Loach is a species of fish that is largely carnivorous. Their diet consists of freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, in addition to a variety of frozen and live meaty foods. They have a wide variety of dietary needs, and it is important to ensure that their diet is as varied as possible for optimal health. Furthermore, providing them with a balanced diet can help extend their lifespan. To ensure a healthy diet, we recommend supplementing their meals with fresh fruits and vegetables. Additionally, incorporating a range of frozen and live foods into their diet can help to provide a diverse and nutritious diet for your Dojo Loach.
