    Possibily Australian? I'll check my reference books when I get back. But I think Choy should be one of the better person to help.

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

    Hi

    The name of the loaches is Pangio (Acanthophthalmus) kuhlii
    Kuhli Loach, Coolie Loach.

    I saw this loaches at C328 yesterday.
    It is selling at $29.
    Interested party can go there and purchase it.

    This is not Pangio kuhlii. And Khuli Loach don't sell for S$29 each. They cost between S$0.50 to S$2.50 each.

    A $29 loach is amazing.
    Can anyone volunteer to go over to C328 to take a look at it?

    Hey guys,
    The loach was collected in northern Thailand. I was there earlier this year, and went trekking. I managed to catch this loach with my hands , so I don't think they're too bright. Anyways, I was wondering if this is a new specie or variant.
    Cheers,

    From memory, about 2", definately not more than 2.5"
    I'm no ichthologist, but I reckon they're loosely related to those dwarf chain loaches, perhaps a little slimmer though.

    Catching the loach with your bare hands might not be the best idea as you might get injured by their spines located near their eyes.
