Cobitis macrostigma

20. June 2012

We received this beautiful and absolutely peaceful loach from China. The species is an ideal bottom dweller for unheated community tanks. The optimal temperatures for the fish are between 10 and 24°C. Females become around 10 cm long, while males stay much smaller. The fish, which could be named “Largespotted Spiny Loach”, feeds readily on any type of usual fishfood.

For our customers: the animals have code 411053 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
