    Anyone have experience with this fish? Is it harm to full planted aquarium? I bought a couple 2 inch CHF (Chinese High Fin) yesterday in local fish shop. The price is quite high here about 75.000 Rupiah each (1 S$ = 5.668 Rupiah). I heard it can grow to 3feet in length in their habitat (Yang Tze River, China).

    The pictures was taken from other website.

    Oh is that what high finned loaches will look like when they grow up?
    Never seen them to be like that?
    At Qian Hu, they seemed to maintain their stripes.
    After all, its the company's logo.

    hmm... A very different way of appreciating your pets. I do know that they deep fry SAE in Thailand for snacks!

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?
