Re: Tank Mates for Banded Tiger Loach?

I'd return the helodes personally.

although a yo-yo can deal with the hell that comes from the helodes personality I wouldn't want to do that to it.

good tank mates for a helodes are eos and modesta... but it is just better to get more helodes

and they get quite large too

Re: When will 5 clown loaches outgrow a 90 gallon?

I found another thread and someone named emma turner who has almost 9000 posts on this site kept clowns in a 4ft tank until they were 8 inches. I think I'm going to listen to someone with 9000 posts on a purely loaches site and keep my loaches in the 90 longer. so you got the search feature working...

Re: Problem with 160 gallon rivertank

Re: Problem with 160 gallon rivertank

what thickness of plex did you use?
it is only 16" high right?

I am building a plexi tank in the near future so this is of great interest to me.
ply/or liner tanks with one window are the cheap way to go!
thumbs up

Re: River tank lighting suggestions

you can always grow algae on rocks etc... in a plastic bucket or whatever in your yard and then add it to your tank. That way you'd have a steady supply and not adding so much heat to the tank.

I have a RTS, a couple of SAE, young Red-Lined Torpedo Barbs (Puntiu...
