Grabbed a few of these from my LFS. Haven't seen them around for sale for quite some time (especially at this size), and thought I'd try keeping them again (been several years since I kept this species). Currently got 6 around 1"-1.25".
Got lucky and scored a Sewellia Sp. spotted in the mix (which I'll post pictures of, once I can get some clear shots of it).

Here are pics of my new group of Sewellia.lineolata.

Anyone here keep these as well?

I had them nearly 10 years ago and found them to be very slow growers.

Yup..... I have two of them and love them! They're like little baby sting rays. Might get a few more as they are very social with each other.

Oh, how long did it take for them to reach max size. Heard they can get around 3", but the biggest I've seen was 2.5".

Yeah, love them too! Really cool species of loach. Watching them feed on pellets is pretty entertaining too!
