JBL ProNovo Botia

All loaches come from Asia and are ground-oriented fish. They therefore eat mainly from the substrate. Many species, such as the clown loach, skunk loach, yoyo loach and orange-finned loach are good snail eaters!

How do bottom dwellers in a community aquarium get their food?
You’ll have seen this: Someone throws a food tablet into the aquarium for their bottom-dwelling loaches, but the fish in the other water zones grab the food tablet and the loaches go empty-handed! The other variant: The loaches are supposed to get some of the other fish’s food. But too often so much food is fed that it’s enough for the loaches and the algae as well! The loaches may not be able to reach food that lands in the decoration. This can spoil and quickly lead to algae problems.
This is how it works better: first feed the fish in the upper water layers and then, when they are in a "feeding frenzy", throw in one or two food tablets for the loaches.
