I am deep in the process of setting up a biotope of Lake Malawi cichlids, and I want to keep the flora and fauna as close to accurate as possible. Yeah I know you're probably saying "then where does the loach come in?" Well, I have another tank with a pair of Kuhli's in it...and those guys are priceless both as entertainment and industrious "vacuums" for the bottom of the tank. I have been told and there is mention on several sites about one native species of loach/botia in Africa...yet no one says what it is. I realize it probably doesn't live in a rift lake...but if I could at least keep the fish from the same continent that would be nice. Does anyone know what loach this is, and/or where I could find info on it? Thanks all you loach lov
