Re: Help with loach getting skinny

As of today, three weeks of prazi my most affected loach has been eating ironically earth worms only. Its two days in a row that she has eaten and the food is actually sticking to her. I will know for full recovery in a week. The striada, other affected fish is still real skinny. I have about 13 loa...

Re: Help with loach getting skinny

Praziquantel isn't very soluble in water, it's a real pain to get into solution. This probably explains some of the foam. Yea, I had to do three treatments. It does not make sense they sell it in this form for aquariums. Maybe the foam is caused by an ingredient in the solution to improve solubilit...

Re: Clown Loach odd behaviour

Re: Help with loach getting skinny

I just ordered some of that Prazipro after seeing that you had ordered it. Glad to hear that it seems to be helping. Really hope I get my order soon so I can start treatment! Did you notice if the treatment is like other parasite meds and requires more water aeration? Lisa, I don't think you will n...

These fish are so georgeous! They sure look relaxed and content for being freshly imported wild caught specimens

Re: My loaches go absolutely bonkers for this (added Pics!)

Most ofter its just a gentle bite. Maybe once or twice I got a bite that felt like a hard pinch on the inside of my palm. They were real hungry that time and the bite made me want to pull my hand out of the water. As far as their sucking power, the large one can pull stuff from between the upper par...

Re: My loaches go absolutely bonkers for this (added Pics!)

Those are great pics of some gorgeous Clowns!!! The pattern on the one in the last pic is very unusual. Thank you. Regarding the unusual patterns on her. Her bars were actually rearranged in fights with a Modesta I used to have. Yea, it was bloody. I confirmed this by looking at a pic of her on thi...
