Pond Fish:Algae Eaters: Dojo Loach

Like many other loaches, dojo loaches are slender and eel-like. They can vary in color from yellow to olive green, to a common light brown or grey with lighter undersides. The mouth of the loach is surrounded by three sets of barbels. It uses them to sift through silt or pebbles to find food. It also uses them to dig under gravel and sand to conceal itself out of nervousness or defense unlike the other loaches who use the spines beneath the eyes.

Dojo Loach – Algae eating pond fish

Dojo are know to eat day and night their favorite food is algae of all types. Pond keepers and water gardeners love that these pond fish can keep their pond free of string algae.

They can grow up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) long. The fish are bottom-dwelling scavengers, feeding mainly on organic material such as algae. Weather loaches are omnivorous and may also feed on tubifex worms and other small aquatic organisms. By producing a layer of mucus to keep themselves damp, they can also survive small periods of not being in the water. They are very hardy fish that can live in poor quality water.
