This pretty loach is distributed in Laos, Thailand and parts of China. Obviously it is a close relative of the dwarf chain loach, Y. sidthimunki, and the behaviour of Y. nigrolineata is absolutely the same.
However, there are two distinguishing features – besides the coloration: first, Y. nigrolineata become a bit larger, about 8 cm long; twice, Y. nigrolineata likes cooler water temperatures. It is best to keep it at room temperature. So it is the ideal fish for all energy savers!
For our customers: Y. nigrolineata has code 404702 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Yasuhikotakia: dedication name. nigrolineata: Latin, means “black striped”; sidthimunki: dedication name.
