Discover the Dojo Loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus): Your Fascinating Weather Predictor

Prepare to be mesmerized by the captivating Dojo Loach, also known as the Weather Loach, an extraordinary fish that responds to changes in barometric pressure. Watch in awe as their activity levels rise, providing a live weather prediction right in your aquarium. It's no wonder these unique creatures have gained popularity among hobbyists worldwide.

Please Note: Dojo loaches are illegal to own and purchase in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and New York. We urge you to be responsible and refrain from releasing any aquatic life into local waterways.

Perfect for beginners and seasoned aquarists alike, the Dojo Loach is incredibly aquarium-friendly and boasts an array of captivating behaviors. These inquisitive fish are well-suited for various tank setups, but a long aquarium is recommended to accommodate their adult size of up to 25 cm. Don't forget to provide proper cover, as Dojo Loaches are excellent jumpers!

Peaceful by nature, these loaches easily coexist with a wide range of fish species. They prefer the company of their own kind, so keeping them in small groups is highly recommended. Observing their natural instinct to bury themselves in the substrate is a sight to behold, as they explore every nook and cranny of their habitat. Ensure your filters are adequately covered to prevent any adventurous escapes!

During the day, the Dojo Loach may appear relatively inactive, but keep a keen eye on them when their activity level noticeably increases. This heightened response is a result of changes in barometric pressure, adding an extra dimension of intrigue to their already fascinating nature.

The Dojo Loach is highly adaptable, thriving in a wide range of water conditions. With a temperature tolerance of approximately 59 – 77 °F, these resilient creatures have evolved to withstand various aquarium environments. However, proper filtration is essential to maintain their well-being. Optimal substrate choices include sand or fine gravel, allowing them to bury themselves comfortably.

Please Note: Our Live Arrival Guarantee ensures the safe arrival of your fish when you choose our Overnight (1 Day) shipping option. Alternative shipping methods may void this guarantee.

    This is such a cool fish. Glad we got one. It arrived healthy and active and much bigger than we were expecting. It does have one smaller fin just like Nemo but we have no way of knowing how that happened and it doesn’t seem to make a difference. The loach swims well and is much more active than we expected. Highly recommend this fish if you’re considering one, definitely do it!
