Remarks: Like many loach species, Sumo Loaches (Schistura balteata) appreciate living in groups of 3+. They come from fast-flowing streams in Myanmar and Thailand, where they live among various sized boulders with little or no aquatic vegetation. In the aquarium, they can tolerate a range of conditions, but require fairly high oxygen content. Plants are acceptable in their tank, along with driftwood and smooth rocks.
