 Does  anyone  know  name  of  this  loach?  Got  2  of  them  very  cheap.  However  one  of  them  has  got  a  big  abdomen  for  past  10  days.  Initially  thought  it  to  be  pregnant.  But  the  size  makes  me  wonder  if  it  is  some  kind  of  tumour?
 
 
 
 Couldnt  get  a  side  profile.  It  is  always  hiding.

 Thats  too  much  even  for  stomach  bloating.  It  might  be  a  tumor.

 navneethtk  :  Looks  like  a  tumour.  But  my  mom  who  is  a  gynaecologist  vehemently  opposes  my  thought  and  says  it's  pregnant  and  going  to  lay  eggs.
 So  better  to  quarantine?  Could  it  be  infectitious?

 I  don't  know  much  about  loaches  but  it  doesn't  look  like  its  carrying  eggs.  If  its  a  disease  I'm  sure  it  isn't  contagious  to  your  livestock.  Just  Google  pics  of  pregnant  loaches.

 Don't  know  exactly,  which  species  is  it.  Just  google  all  these  names  and  find  out  how  it  looked  before  'bulging'..
 Botia  kubotai,  Ambastaia  sidthimunki,  Lohachata  Botia  Loach,  Angelicus  Botia  Loach,  Yoyo  loach.

 Keluthi  :  just  like  josyJames  said,  it  is  indeed  yoyo.  
 Do  loaches  lay  eggs  or  give  birth  to  live  young?
 Does  this  kind  of  disease  occurred  to  anyone's  loaches  or  other  fish  before?
 What  could  be  possible  cause?

 This  link  has  all  the  answer.

 If  you  got  it  for  cheap  than  definitely  she  is  not  pregnant  look  out  &  save  your  other  livestock.

 abhi_123  :  got  the  hint.  
 freshaquarium.about.com/od/loaches/p/yoyoloach.htm  says  nobody  has  bred  them  in  captivity  though  females  carry  eggs.
 
 Anyone  in  IAH   who  has  bred  loaches?
 I  know  kuhli  Loach  disturbs  substrate.  Haven't  seen  yoyo  do  the  same.  Are  they  safe  in  planted  tanks  with  shrimp?  Some  forums  say  they  eat  snails  and  shrimp.

 It  looks  like  Botia  almorhae  from  the  images.  ¬†they  dont  burrow  and  are  comfortable  even  in  mid  water.  It  is  certianly  not  gravid,  my  apologies  to  the  gynec,  and  what  ever  it  has  is  sure  not  contagious  by  the  looks  of  it.  @navneet  seems  to  have  the  right  diagnosis.  You  should  put  it  out  of  its  misery  if  it  displays  any  odd  behavior.  Always  try  to  keep  loaches  in  shoals  of  5  and  above.  The  behavior  is  more  interesting  then.  Loaches  do  breed  in  aquaria,  but  not  consistently  and  mostly  by  accident  rather  than  due  to  expertise  on  the  part  of  the  aquarist.  Given  their  exotic  geographies  of  origin,  it  often  difficult  to  recreate  conditions  conducive  to  breeding.  This  does  not  prevent  the  breeders  from  using  harmone  induced  spawning,  i  am  sure.  if  they  can  breed  the  P.Denisonii,  why  not  the  B.Almorhae  ?
