Bah...RIP little Dojo :(

We found our littlest Weather Loach (Dojo) dead inside a hollow ornament this morning :( I just want to warn anyone with this type of Loach to NOT have ornaments that they can dig under and get stuck in. Dojos love to dig and bury themselves in the sand. In my aquarium I have 2 log type hiding place...

Is there any way to save him? Or do I just l...

Just showing off...

Just thought I'd let everyone know that I got two more tankmates for my Dojo "Wiggles". They are smaller than him but they get along just fine. There was no sign of Ick after the quarantine period so I decided....it was time! He is just so happy now with his new buddies and they always cuddle togeth...
