They seem to enjoy the company of other dojo loaches, but we have kept one alone previously and he seemed very happy.
Lots of fun to watch, they love to lay on plants or bury themselves under the substrate.
Dojos are often referred to as Weather Loaches because of their ability to predict the weather. When there is a sudden
change in the barametric pressure or a temperature change these loaches will start swimming frantically around a tank.
Make sure your tank is covered well or they will likely jump, we have lost one this way in the past.
