Gyrinocheilus aymonieri

The Gold Sucking Loach is also known as Golden Chinese Algae Eater, or Golden Algae Eater comes from Asia and has a slender body and is golden to brown in color. A darker stripe runs horizontally and is either solid or broken into spots. It is usually kept in aquariums for the purpose of keeping algae under control.

Plenty of plants, rocks, and driftwood are recommended for hiding. It can handle different water conditions but water quality should remain constant to avoid stress. In smaller community tanks the Chinese Algae Eater will defend its territory. This species of algae eater can become aggressive when they become full grown.

Breeding has not been seen or been successful in an aquarium setting. There is little known about sexing the male and female.

The main source of food is algae on plants, rocks, glass, and driftwood. Algae based wafers should be provided if there is a lack of algae.

Ideal tankmates: most community fishes
