Loach with Italian pasta

Hi *@*, a few years ago I tried giving my loaches a piece of cooked Italian pasta* and the response was very positive, they seem to really love it. One or two pieces are more than enough for 20-30 small to medium sized fish. I do this regularly now (1-2 times a week) as an alternative food and never...

Re: Share your Loach Movies!

I accidently dropped some food pellets onto the glass someday and, while watching the tank from the front, I saw a loach disappearing from the water and coming back a few seconds later. :shock: :lol: That got me thinking and I put some food deliberately on the glass bar and what you saw in the video...

Please note the clever fixation of the food to the front pane. ;-)

Loachy socks

Hi *@*,

since I love loaches just as much as most of you do, I convinced my girl-friend to make me those:

My very own clown loach style hand dyed and hand knitted socks. :mrgreen:

Don't worry about the tiny striata .. worry about your clowns. Mark my words. :-p

Thanks again to everyone for the help. @shari2 I never used carbon in my filter. @Tinman I cleaned my small QT tank and set it up an hour ago. The alpha is already moved and very active. It was a breeze to catch it: 1. Startle the fish a little 2. Grab the PVC pipe with the loach inside 3. Done :) T...

My alpha clown loach needs your medical knowledge

Hello *@*, my alpha clown loach is sick for several months now and quite frankly, I have no clue what else I could try anymore. Perhaps someone of you has a bright idea what to do now. I will try to be as detailed as possible. Sorry for the large pictures but I want to give you the best information ...

@ chefkeith Couldn't agree more. Tubes and loaches are kind of made for another. Loaches were a horror of mine to net in before I added tubes. Now they're the easiest fish to catch. :) @ starsplitter7 I had thought about doing that with my gravel but wasn't sure ... I think I got accustomed to them ...

Thanks :)

I would throw out the PVC pipes in a blink if my loaches wouldn't love them so much. They always sleep in them and prefer them over all other caves, at least for the night. So I guess they stay in until I find some more beautifully coloured tubes that won't rot. :)

Finnatic,

impressive amount of tanks. ^_^
If you want to give water monitoring a try I can recommend 5-in-1 sticks like these: http://www.jbl.de/factmanager/frame_pag ... e=2&Id=102

Cheap, easy to use and very effective.
