TMartins Posted August 16, 2021 Share Posted August 16, 2021 (edited) Hello everyone, I have an aggressive female Reticulated Hillstream Loach in a 20 gallon high with 2 Platies, 5 Albino Cory’s and 1 Bolivian Ram. I’ve had him for about 2 weeks. The first week he would constantly hide and keep to himself. Then I got a second female Hillstream Loach and the shyness went away. My concern is that at feeding time and only at feeding time he gets overly aggressive towards all the fish (and not just the other Hillstream Loach), especially the Albino Cory’s (but so far he leaves the Bolivian Ram alone). I put in extra sinking food, Repashy and Hikari sinking wafers, but he just swims around the bottom and barrels over the Cory’s and any fish that gets in his way. So far I’ve not noticed any injuries on any of the fish. I’ve read that people have had aggressive Hillstream Loaches before and it usually calms down. Should I wait or return him to my LFS??
