Panda Loach is a biofilm and algae grazer in nature. It is known to usually accept frozen meaty foods, but such foods should only be fed occasionally.  This fish will also sometimes accept high-quality dry foods that are rich in plant matter, but it is absolutely essential that biofilm and algae are naturally available in the aquarium to ensure its long-term health or else it may slowly starve.  As long as it is kept in a well-maintained, mature aquarium with good biofilm and algae growth as well as high water flow, the Panda Loach is a hardy and entertaining fish.
