Re: Buy an extra clown loach, yey or ney.

Thanks Fran. They indeed seem to be doing well together although on the warm side for the denisons but they grew really nice and colorful and I try to keep the tank at 26C but now in the summer it overheats. The tank gets hit by both the window sun and artificial LED light. The emersed plants are go...

Re: Buy an extra clown loach, yey or ney.

Ha,ha. Thanks Fran. I hadn't come over here in a while so just seen your comment. Here is one from a month ago. I don't know if you've seen it. I had done some wood re-arrangements. I must take a fresh one but in my tank nothing really changes...for bad and good. The plants have grown out of proport...

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Hey, Fran

Again, I missed it. Life is sometimes rushing around me and other times I am rushing around it.

How's things?

I hope you are happy and the fish are happy.

All the best to you!

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Thanks Fran. Visually, it was too far gone. It was as thin as a sheet but I was unrealistically hoping....Sad story for that little fish.

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Hi Fran, sorry, hadn't seen you asked.

The fish passed away on Sunday or Monday, not sure when it happened. Poor thing. I hope I did not contribute to its suffering. It's now in fish heaven I hope.

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

He's black because he's probably been sick for a long time and in severe stress. From what I gather discus have dark pigment and can turn dark/black when very sick. I am not sure how it all started. I didn't gather much info from the shop besides that they said they got him about 3 weeks ago and he ...

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

No, no difference at all. I've actually had him for a week already. He's gone through a de-worming treatment. His poop turned normal. He's eating a bit but with a very poor appetite. Besides that there's little improvement in appearance. I don't even know its real color... He was black in the shop a...

Yes, he certainly looks he's too far gone.

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Hey Fran, I am so happy for you. No, you did not get lucky. There's no luck in these things. It's your dedication and excellent care and attention to the fish that pays off back to you. All the best to you and the good looking fishes. P.S.No changes with my clowns, all good thankfully, and the rest ...

Re: loach tank set up - im new to this

I've had some success catching my clown loaches with a jug, cornering and herding them into it. That way they also remain in water and are not as stressed.

Re: Kuhli Loaches hiding

Mine spent the first few years almost on their own in a leaf litter tank. I could always see them browsing the leaf litter and they'd dance late in the evening when lights are off or early morning. Then that tank gushed down on the floor. I lost one kuhli, found it dried up later. The remainder went...

Re: loach tank set up - im new to this

In fairness, I would not add clown loaches as both your tanks are not suitable long term. Also, I found out that when my clowns got older, they definitely destroyed all plants. They'd generally damage the leaves by biting them but it's enough to put the plants in distress, algae issues resulting fro...

Re: Long lived sucking loach

A very sad end too. I bet his demise got you in a lather! (terrible I know).
Well, you can tell. :lol: I still remember it as if it was yesterday :lol: I was very angry :mrgreen:

The story happened decades ago
