Is This a Loach?

Hi,
I was wondering if this is a Loach or not. It is 6 years old.

Hi,
I looked at the river manifold. IMO I don't like the theme of it. But I will be adding power heads to provide aeration and direct high speed flow.

Hi, I was on one of those touch Ipods, so it is hard to navigate around the forum. Sorry I wanted to past the name but it is so annoying to use the touch ipod. Yes they Mesonoemacheilus guentheri. There will only be one in the tank. Along with a few Hill-Stream Loaches, if there wont be any territor...

If all else fails, you can run a rehome add in one of your local papers. The nice thing about saying you are "rehoming" as opposed to selling is that you can be choosy about who you let them go home with. Sorry my previous advice wasn't more useful. That is a idea. My local fish club. HMMM. No your...

I have seen people rehome their fish on Craiglist before. (the link to craigslist New Zealand http://geo.craigslist.org/iso/nz ) Although the site I use is for the Washington DC metro area which gets lots of activity. It doesn't look like there is too much activity on the NZ pets section. I thought...

I have both guentheri and triangularis and have not had any serious problems with them. They do chase each other around some and will occasionally chase the rainbows in the tank, but that's it. It looks as if there are plenty of hiding places in that tank so I haven't a clue as to why you would be ...

This is the tank lay out.

I can turn the currant up more but the rest of the fish can't swim very well in it. And the Plants don't live.

So I cam stuck. I can return the fish. I cant set up a spare tank. So what to do?

So these Mesonoemacheilus guentheri, need a more Hill-stream type tank. And Accordingly they are suppose to be less territorial than other types of it's species, right? So what is up with mine. Why where they killing fish fast and hard?? They have stop since I separated them all and placed them in o...

Similar body shape but that is all. I will try and up load a pic for ...
