Panda loach - Protomyzon pachychilus
The beautiful Panda Mountain Loach is not yet long represented in the aquaristics. Their juvenile dress is rich in contrast and really comes into its own in the aquarium. The breeding of the fish has now succeeded several times in aquaristics and should definitely be pursued further, as the fish in nature are severely endangered by environmental destruction. - Garnelio

Description

The Panda Loach or Panda Mountain Brook Loach (Yaoshania pachychilus, synonym Protomyzon pachychilus) is an absolute stunner as a juvenile fish: black and white cross bands adorn the slender fish from China. They grow to a maximum size of 6 cm. The coloration of the adult fish is a light gray and dark gray stripe pattern - still extremely attractive, although not quite as contrasting as the juvenile. In its native habitat it is considered an endangered species, so great attention should be paid to breeding this beautiful fish , which is highly compatible with shrimp .

In nature, Panda Mountain Brook Loaches live in very similar habitats to bee shrimp: plant-free, with fallen leaves on the bottom, clean and soft water.

Yaoshania pachychilus feels most comfortable in a small group. The panda loach needs rather cool, soft water with a conductance of 200-250 µS and a maximum of 24 °C, whereby the values may drop to 15 °C during the year. The water quality should be good, the oxygen content high. High nitrate values are particularly badly tolerated. Since the loaches like to comb the substrate for food, you should choose fine gravel or sand as substrate for the aquarium. Rounded grains are highly recommended. For breeding, a section of the aquarium with coarse gravel is conducive.

The panda loach is an epiphytic feeder, feeding primarily on algae growth and biofilms. This must be taken into account when feeding. Food that is too high in protein is not good for this beautiful fish, so mosquito larvae and the like should be avoided. Appropriate food tabs for plant eating bottom dwelling fish should therefore be part of the regular diet. In principle, panda loaches are fed like bee shrimp - to which they also fit perfectly in terms of water values.

The sexes can be distinguished by the genital papilla, but this is difficult to recognize for inexperienced keepers. On the whole, the females are stronger than the males and often less contrasting in their markings.

Panda loaches are free spawners, they like to lay their eggs over coarser gravel. The young initially live in the coarse gravel. When they come out, they are fed with Artemia nauplii. Some mulm on the aquarium bottom provides microorganisms for feeding the fry. Vigorous water changes and good food will encourage spawning.

Our food recommendation: The NatureHolic Catfishfeed for all aufwuchs feeding sucking catfish in the aquarium is a balanced tablet food that does not cloud the water and the fish like to eat. The catfish tablets also contain NatureHolic active ingredient complexes, which provide sucking catfish with everything they need for a strong immune system, healthy growth and great, contrasting coloration. As a snack, supplemental food or vacation food, we recommend the CatfishPlates.

Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planarians and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.

Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.

Hallo David, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Das ist bei Raritäten schwer abzuschätzen, hinterlasse deine Mail, dann verpasst du sie nicht. 

Question: "Wäre eine Vergesellschaftung mit Fächergarnelen (Atya gabonensis / Atyopsis moluccensis) und Prachtflossensaugern (Sewellia lineolata) möglich?"

from Kevin (Garnelio)

Das sollte voraussichtlich klappen.

Question: "Guten Tag, Wann kann man die Fische wieder bestellen, und kann ich die mit Otocinclus, L240, Guppys und Skalaren zusammen halten."

Die Pandaschmerle sollte bald wieder verfügbar sein, aber du kannst dich auch über die neue Ankunft informieren lassen. Da sie von einem anderen Kontinent stammt als deine jetztigen Fische würde ich dir von der Vergesellschaftung aber lieber abraten. Pasender wären Fische, die ebenfalls aus Südamerika stammen, das kannst du mithilfe unserer Filterfunktion im Shop einstellen und erhältst dann eine Gesamtübersicht. Liebe Grüße, Kevin
