The ideal environment for the Sumo Loach is one with high water flow to replicate their natural environment and lots of places to retreat to if threatened. Sumo Loaches make good tankmates for fish like tetras, danios, barbs and rasboras but may become nippy towards other Sumo Loaches. In a large tank, several of these loaches can usually be kept together if their visual territories are divided with plenty of rockwork and decorations.
