The Zebra Loach is a smaller loach which is not as common as the Clown and YoYo loaches. The only grow to a size of about 4 inches (10cm) which is much less then the clown loach (30cm).

It is a schooling fish that should be kept with 5 of its own kind. They need well oxygenated water supported with power heads. they are the ideal fish for the communtiy aquarium.

PH: Anything under neutral (7)
Temp: 23-27 Degrees Celcius

This fish has not been reported breeding in the home aquarium.

Nice summary, although I miss some vital information.

Any loaches (B. histrionica, lochahata, etc.) need alots of free swimming space. You could count with two grown ups per 120-140 litre.
Feed them primarily with snails and give sinking wafers as supplementary food. In addition well washed Tubifex, Enchytraeus albinus and bloodworms could be added to their diet.
