Please check stock availability before ordering

Dwarf chain loach, Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki, are sometimes referred to as ‘monkeys’ Dwarf chain loaches, or  ‘monkeys’ or ‘sids’ as they are often known, once occurred in vast numbers in river basins of the Chao Phraya, Kwai and Mae Klong of Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. Numbers are dwindling however, largely due to hydro-electric damming, and the species is declared ‘critically endangered’ on the IUCN red list. In Thailand it is now protected.

Being a dwarf species that rarely exceeds 6cm/2.4″, Y. sidthimunki is a good choice for smaller aquaria. They do require room to swim though and the length and width of the tank is more important than height.

Ideal water parameters, pH 6.4 to 7.0, temperature 78-84f

Feeding, clown loach will eat a variety of foods. Feed a varied diet of frozen food, freeze dried and flake foods.
