Two of these lovely golden dojo loaches live with my goldfish.

Weather Loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus) "Gold Dojo". Best fish ever! Peaceful and gentle. Must be with other non-aggressive species. Prefers a subtropical tank (60 to 70 F). Has a distinct personality and will fool you into thinking it has expired by draping itself into impossible positions.

Ah yes. Much better. 2 golden dojo loaches, new substrate, decorations and plants, both I and my fishies are very happy with the result!

Golden Dojo Loach. Great for semi-aggressive freshwater tanks. Good for cleaning the bottom of the tank, but gets 10 inches long, so it needs at least a 20 gallon tank. Fishometer: 7

The Dojo Loach or Weather Loach was described by Cantor in 1842.

It is known by a number of other common names including Oriental Weatherfish, Chinese Weatherfish, Japanese Weatherfish, Oriental Weather Loach, and Pond loach. A gold variety is called the Golden Dojo Loach.This species is listed on the IUCN Red List as least concern (LC) because it has a wide distribution. It is suggested, due to morphological variability, this fish may actually constitute several species. There is some decline in parts of its natural range associated with increased agriculture and ecosystem degradation. On the other hand, its global populations are increasing due to introductions. Introduction may be because they are used by anglers as live bait and so some possibly escape. They have also been introduced into the wilds of Australia and Hawaii. They are a food fish in many Asian countries, especially Japan.The Weather Loach we are describing here, , is one of three species commonly referred to as a weather loach. The other two are and . They all come from similar environments and have similar behaviors. The two species are identified by their color patterns with the being spotted and the having horizontal stripes along the body. It is still being discussed whether the spotted one is simply a subspecies of the striped one, though they come from different geographical areasThey inhabit rivers as well as still or slowly moving waters including lakes, ponds, swamps, and rice fields. They prefer muddy bottoms. During the dry season these loaches can tolerate oxygen depleted waters by using the posterior portion of the intestine and skin as supplementary breathing organs and will swim to the surface and gulp air while simultaneously expelling intestinal gases from the vent. It has also been recorded that these loaches can live for extended periods out of the water it they are in moist sand or mud. Feed on worms, small crustaceans, insects, insect larvae, and other small aquatic organisms.
