Most Sharks and Loaches originate from South East Asia and are suited to tropical planted aquariums. Sharks are popular due to their ability to adapt to a range of differently stocked aquaria and Loaches for their character and interesting behaviours. Loaches prefer to be kept in schools of 5 or more and some Loaches can also be used for pest snail control.
