This is my little yoyo loach, Algernon. He's my favourite of all my fish...
He does this everytime I come up to the tank. I interpret it as either "hi!" or "feed me already!!". Needless to say he gets fed a lot!
It's pretty blurry, sorry.

Just click on that ^ and it will take you to the video.

Here's a non-fuzzy picture of him:

cool yoyo, I have one myself, hes around 1.5" long, how about Algernon?

I love loaches, but I have yet to name mine...I called him 'gangsta fish' for a while (yo) but now the 'yoyo' isnt as noticable, so I need a new name..

hes in my 10g right now, but I'm setting up a 75 gallon in the next month (and cycling it for two months) and I'm going to have 6 yoyos and some various other fish (pearl gouramis, cherry barbs, marbled hatchets, bristlenose cats)

It's 20 gallons, planted, with
2 yoyos (Algernon and his buddy)
2 panda cories
6 harlequin rasboras
3 marbled hatchetfish
2 otos
Someday I'm also going to get another panda cory and maybe a dwarf gourami.

Cute fish...I have had several and found them to be clowns in the tank though they have a bad habit of turning into jerky after they jump from the tank.

p.s. Brett-
I really recommend the harlequins! They are such fun and beautiful as well. I've had cherry barbs and I like the harlequins better...

thank for the recommendation..

don't worry, if you have a full cover and no big opennings, they will be fine...just don't keep some loaches in open-top tanks..haha
