Re: Loaches more and more shy

ok, thank you, it's good to know that the loaches don't become lazier over time:) I don't have any dither fish - I used to have bosemani rainbow fish but the heater failure killed them (luckily it didn't affect the loaches). Now I have golden heros severums in addition to loaches but perhaps I'll co...

Loaches more and more shy

3 yrs I go I got a school of 20 clown loaches,they were tiny babies. Now they have grown a lot and seem happy (I feed them shrimps every once in a while). The tank is 500 liters and they have several hiding places under logs. At the beginning they were very playful all day long and went to bed at ni...

ich?

I've had new clown loaches for 2 weeks and 2 days. They are ca 5-6 cm. Yesterday I noticed tiny white spot on forehead of one fish and today some of them scratch. No spots. Is this ich? I haven't added new fish or plants nor feed live food during this time. How did they get infected? Why did this ta...

I think I'll separate my tank into two parts with net or something. Can't really have another tank with good filtration.

I bought new fish and they got ich but I detected it too late, then panicked and added salt (now I know I shouldn't have), then cured them with sera bactopur. Other fishes healed but clowns died. My tank is 1 year old and never had any disease outbreak before. I have 500 L tank (2m long), eheim filt...

and one more thing - is it true that loaches from Borneo are shy and loaches from Sumatra are not and how can I tell one from another? My old loaches were out all day and went to sleep at night.

I'm going to take some 15 of them. i know my 125 g tank is not big enough for 15 adult loaches but it takes long time to ge...

I had 8 clowns in my 500 L tank with several other fishes - gouramies, tiger barbs, rosy barbs. I introduced couple of new fish recently and lost all my clowns due to ich (or velvet or sth, I don't know.) Other fishes survived, but I am going to give them away and start over with a big group of loac...

plants&clown loaches

how can you grow live plants in clown loach tank? My loaches eat everything I try to grow. Do I need CO2 to get the plants growing or what should I do? Can you suggest some good plants with them? And how should I fight algae? A few plants that I've got all have black leaves instead of being bright g...

skinny loach - worms or bacterial disease?

One of my 6 loaches has become skinny lately. He is less active then others and doesn't eat much. (all loaches are ca 7 cm long) Two weeks ago some tiger barbs from the same tank had part of their tails missing and I suspected fin rot and treated them with antibacterial liquid. Now I don't know if I...
