Lepidocephalus thermalis

Lepidocephalus thermalis
Indian Spiny Loach
Same as other Lepidocephalichthys and Lepidocephalus sp. A peaceful loach that likes lots of hiding places with soft substrate. This species is very active often burrowing themselves, up to their face/eyes beneath the sand substrate. Sand will be best to protect their delicate skin. Best kept in groups. Three fish is the recommended minimum that should be kept together. At times they like each other's company when sheltering under plants and bogwood. At other times they prefer to be left alone while they burrow under the substrate.
