Some of these loaches have been around since 2003. They were in my mom's tank, then mine, then RD, and back to mine.
RD has some nice ones too. They really are a great fish and will fill the whole tank if they are unmolested by other fish. I always enjoy watching these guys unique behavior.

Canada eh
My Y. Modesta & Berdmorei Loaches live in my African Cichlid tank. The Red Tails are three years old & built like linebackers. The Berdmorei is a little younger & is fearless. Great clean up crew.View attachment 1390938View attachment 1390939View attachment 1390940
I love modesta I had a group of 9 but had to get rid of them when my bass got too big for them. I found my biggest bass with a tail sticking out of its mouth breathing heavy. The spines got lodged into the bass’ throat and it couldn’t spit it out for about 20-30 min. I thought for sure both fish were goners.

Eventually the bass spit it out and both fish are still alive to this day. The red tails are tough as nails.
