About Loach & Catfish Nutrition
Loaches and catfish are both easy-going scavengers who like to vacuum the tank floor, looking for bits of food that have fallen and been forgotten. Many varieties of loach and catfish like to hang out with their own kind, while others are happy being the solitary tank vacuum in an aquarium bustling with speedier and more aggressive fish varieties.
Loaches and catfish are mostly herbivores, but being opportunists, they will snap up an errant snail or hapless dried worm if occasion permits. However, they would also appreciate an algae disc or spirulina green flakes, both excellent sources of plant nutrition.
