    Default Horseface Loach Acantopsis dialuzona

    Anyone have experience keeping these with discus or can comment on their suitability? I have a 125 sand tank with epiphyte plants attached to a 3d background. By behavior they seem highly suited for sifting the sand. Thanks all!

    I don't have any personal experience keeping them both together, but if I recall correctly horseface loaches are cool water species and I don't think they'd be able to handle the high temperatures needed for discus.

    A google search suggestes the Horseface Loach need a temp between 75 to 82 and they are a fairly active species so perhaps not the best fish to add with discus.
