Chinese Hillstream Loach
The regular butterfly loach, or chinese hillstream loach, has a narrower body than the reticulated hillstream loach. The color pattern is a subtle light banded. Normally hillstream loaches are gathered on rocks of swift flowing streams in China and their unusual flat wide fins are perfectly suited to this environment. Freshwater loaches are hardy and feed on just about anything and are quite the site hanging on the other side of the aquarium glass.
