Re: A hello post with some questions - and lots of PICS!

Do you know what would be effective and SAFE for loaches? I've never had to medicate them for anything internal before. I'm pretty sure that this is P. cuneovirgata, but - as you said, internet pics can be iffy. She's REALLY red compared to the others, who are slightly pinkish, so I'm still worried ...

Re: A hello post with some questions - and lots of PICS!

Diana - thank you so much for the reply! I really appreciate it! Good to know that the tiny tank will be okay for the tiny babies for their QT. Paramaters have been very stable, but I can't help feeling bad for keeping such active little critters in such close quarters - despite their size! They see...
