I purchased several Skunk Botia Loaches to help with a snail problem. They are very good at sucking snails out of their shells and while not eliminating the problem help to control it.
My brother in-law recently asked to borrow my 7w “submariner” U/V sterilizer which was in the tank with the Skunks. I took the U/V out placed it in the box and my brother in law did not put it in his tank until late the next evening. The next week he came over and pointed out one of the skunks in my tank and asked abruptly “what kind of fish is that !!? My wife told him it was a Skunk loach and he laughed and said there was one in his tank and he did not know where it came from. Sure enough…I was missing one.
This little guy survived out of water for almost 36 hours. Now that is one tough fish.
I figured if he wanted to move out that bad I would let him stay in the Brother-in-laws tank.
