Re: Clown Loaches now 27 years old

Hey redshark1. I agree with you. Water quality and low fish density is more important, especially if the fish have adequate room to swim at the same time. One gets a massive tank and then overstocks with huge fish...The effect of the extra space does not go towards fish health... Keeping fish alive ...

Re: 125 gallon not big enough for clowns?

I started with planted tanks and as life gets in the way, I had to cut down on that due the maintenance time. Clown loaches are a lot more joy than a planted tank, at least to me, especially after you've had them for a good few years and learn their characters. Having said that, my clown loach tank ...

Re: Kuhli Loaches question

Hi, A reply a bit too late but hope you'll read it. 1. On point one: Kuhli loaches are shy. If they're together with other very active eaters, they may starve unless you take measures 2. On point two: My Khuli loaches are 8 years old now in pH of 7.4 water, quite hard. I think I am late on the accli...

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...

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 ...
