White, swollen mouth on my clown loach

I have a 125 gal river tank with 6 large clowns. They fight mouth to mouth frequently. Just noticed one of them has a very swollen, white mouth. Is this from fighting or something worse!

Re: High Nitrates

Thanks for the reply. I never know how much to feed my loaches. They're pretty big and gobble everything up right away. I hate to feed them less but that is one possible solution. When I vaccum the tank, I hardly get any debris. The substrate is pretty clean.

Thank you again.

Ques RE KH/GH in new tank

I had posted a topic re pH levels a few days ago and Diana gave me some great advice. She advised me not to worry so much about the pH but that the GH and KH levels are much more important. I purchased the "Nutrafin Test" kit for KH/GH. I was not able to find a TDS meter. The KH level in old tank ar...

Ques regarding pH levels

Hi, I have 13 Clown Loaches, one Severum and one Pleco that I am anxious to transfer from a 40 gal tank to a new 125 river tank. The new tank has been up and running for 2 months. I followed Martin Thoene's manifold river tank to the T. Everything is perfect except the pH. In old tank it is a perfec...
