Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The zebra loach, Botia striata, is a small freshwater fish native to Southern India. The maximum size is about 3 in (7.8 cm). It lives in tropical climate with temperature range of 23 - 26 C, and prefers water with 6.0 to 8.0 pH, 5.0 to 12 dGH.Zebra loaches are peaceful fish suitable to community aquarium tanks. However, being bottom feeder, they may show some aggression against other smaller bottom feeder. Therefore, small corydoras are not suggested as a tankmate. They should be kept in group of at least five, any less and they will become stressed. They require some caves to hide during most of daylight. B. striata will accept a wide variety of fish foods, including live food such as blackworms, snails and small shrimps, and most commercial brands of sinking fish foods.
