I notice that 99.9% of the time the hatchets are at the top of the tank but for some reason I have noticed that one of the hatchets seems to be swimming to mid to lower se...

Re: Fish Stores these days

Some miss information is kind of how I got into Loaches, at one of my LFS in my area I was looking for something to help with my snail epidemic on my 20gal tank when I first got started in fish keeping about 6 years ago.

Re: New Blue Loach and Community Tank

I don't even really know how many I have I bought 5 3 years ago and only really see them once in a while. the like to live in the big plan...

Re: New Blue Loach and Community Tank

I plan on taking the Otocinclus out of that tank and am setting up the 20gal that I am using as a Q tank at the moment for some other fish, not sure what yet, maybe some kuhli.

Re: New Blue Loach and Community Tank

Thanks for the input, I have had clown Loaches in there that dug, and never really released any gasses, but I do notice a bubble now and then come from the dirt. I guess if it was a real issue I would have dead fish by now. as I have observed the CLs digging around and were fine till they got a bad ...
