After a few days in a hospital tank, the loach has died.

Re: Can a Weather Loach be kept in a UK gardne pond?

It is illegal to keep a weather loach in a pond as they are able to survive wild in UK, and in some parts of the world have indeed colonised local streams.

Re: Filter Recommendation

It was seeded with a spare filter sponge from one of my existing tanks. I am being very careful, I am too fond of the little creatures to do anything else.

Re: Filter Recommendation

Finally got the 275 l (72 G US) tank, as the larger one wouldn't fit on the table. Got the biggest internal filter I could find, Interpet 250. The tank came with an in-hood trickle filter, but no pump. Bought a pump and managed to connect it up (don't you just love tank repair silicon?). Seems to ha...

Re: Filter Recommendation

I have 3 golden weather loaches (dojos) who are amazing, which is why I am getting the larger tank. Eventually I will get them a couple of friends.

Re: Filter Recommendation

My plants in the current loach tank are in pots, which seems to be a good compromise so far. I had not even considered under substrate filter, as my weather loaches like the sand. I will have to research :)

Filter Recommendation

I am about to get a 275 or 330 l tank for my young golden weather loaches and their mates (depends which I can fit in my car) and I am looking for recommendations on suitable filter types. I have only had internal filters before, but given the bigger tank is it time to go external? Is the UV option ...
