The Horseface Loach originates from the rivers, streams and backwaters of Singapore.

Like many of the loaches, they have an elongated, thin body that is well suited for burrowing into the substrate. The head and nose of this species is also elongated and is horse-like in appearance.

The colouration of these fish will vary from gold, tan and silver with many irregular black markings. They are a peaceful scavenger well suited for a medium to large size community aquarium.

Largely nocturnal, loaches are shy fish that like to hide among driftwood, plant roots, rocks, and caves. Provide a medium to fine substrate for the Horseface Loach to sift through and to burry themselves when threatened.

Loaches are peaceful fish that get along well with other peaceful community fish. Unfortunately, the breeding habits of the Horseface Loach have not been documented.

Although it is a scavenger, the Horseface Loach is largely carnivorous, preferring freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, as well as frozen and live foods of all types.

With time and training, the Horseface Loach may accept flake foods.
