Zebra Loaches are striped, bottom-dwelling fish that are usually a good choice for a beginner aquarium hobbyist. These freshwater fish can tolerate smaller tanks with some tank water fluctuations and are a peaceful species. However, there have been no cases of successful breeding of this species in a home aquarium meaning that all specimens have been removed from their wild habitat.

These guys are great for eating pest snails in your aquarium, be careful when keeping other snails you want to keep alive though. It’s recommended to not house them with your snails if you want them to stay alive.
