Product Description

Spotted or Butterfly Hillstream Loaches are some of the most intriguing fish. They are closely related to another fish at Flip Aquatics, the Reticulated Hillstream Loach. Their unique body shape is absolutely stunning. They originate from fast-moving streams ,therefore; they prefer good water flow. We house ours using a Matten filter to create flow. The use of a matten filter creates good oxygen content and good flow, although a powerhead would help too. 

Please Note: All fish shipments have a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when shipping with the Overnight (1 Day) option. All other options void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish. 

These fish would go great with Bamboo Fan Shrimp as they both prefer water movement and originate from streams. The use of river stones to recreate a stream will help these fish thrive.

The scientific name for the Butterfly or Spotted Hillstream Loaches is Beaufortia leveretti although other species may get mixed in. 

We feed our Hillstream Loaches a mix of Northfin Veggie, Community, and Fry Starter. Their preferred food is Northfin Kelp Wafers and natural algae or biofilm. They are not picky eaters and will accept foods that are small enough.
