PAKISTANI / YOYO LOACH 4CM
The yo yo loach, sometimes called a scaleless fish, actually has small scales embedded in its skin. It's an active scavenger that is a semi-aggressive fish and lives well with its own species. This fish has several names, including the Pakistani loach from its place of origin and the reticulated loach from its giraffe-like pattern.
The name yo yo loach, according to several sources, came from photographer Ken Childs, a major player in the aquarium import business for many years. There are two very different versions of why he dubbed this fish the "yo-yo." One version claims that the fish were so active that they were bouncing like yo-yos. The other relates to the fish's pattern which (especially in juveniles) looks very much like a collection of Ys and Os.
