Hillstream Loach - Beaufortia kweichowensis


Origin: Eastern Asia, China
Temperature: 65 - 75
PH: 6.7 - 7.0
Maximum Size: 3-4 inches
Temperment: Non-Agressive fish, not really a community fish as they require a fast current.

Hillstream loaches require fast moving water as it is their natural habitat. In the wild they feed off of small animals that get caught in the nooks of rocks in the fast moving current. They do need large flat rocks where they will spend most of their time as well as the glass surface of the aquarium.
