Re: "fat" loach?

You need to move the dojos to there own tank and keep it cool and fairly good movement Lots of oxygen. And keep it very clean. They will be much happier.

Re: tank mates for my loaches

I have a group of blue red boesemani and madagascar rainbows with mine. Also a pair of pugnax and Barbus lineatus. They all work wonderfully together. Oh and some silver hatchets to top it off also :)

Re: New pics of rescued loach please help id

At first I was wanting to research so I could make sure that I cared for him as well as I could. But I've had him awhile now and has gone from "never out of his cave or swimming around" to eating out of my hand and tearing all over his 125 with my yo yo's. So he isn't aggressive and is obviously hap...

Re: New pics of rescued loach please help id

That was my first thought but he isn't a tiger. You can't see his stripes unless your shinin a light on him and they are just a bit darker silver than the rest of him. He has no markings on his face and no blue green tint either. I'm stumped. I even took him to a professor of mine (I am currently ge...

Re: New pics of rescued loach please help id

Ill try. I don't think so. His fins aren't red. And he has these faint stripes (vertical) on his body. And is just to long and his nose is really long to compared with the modestas I've seen. Thank you for replying. I hope to figure this out. Either way he is doing great. Very sweet. And living with...

Re: Dojo death I never saw coming be careful

Laanan... Small frequent water changes and use of prime when you do, or if you have a spike. They are a very hardy fish and have evolved to live in some pretty bad conditions but that is no reason to force them to. They are wonderful pets and when happy can learn to be very affectionate back. Mine a...

Re: How Much How Often?

I feed mine small amounts 3-4 times a day. A lil brine or mysid shrimp here then some cyclopeeze there and then blood worms after lights out. They have done great this way since they were tiny. They are not overweight at all but have grown at a healthy rate.

Re: Where do you find your loaches?

If you email the owner of the wet spot ( contact info on the site) he can get way more than just the ones he has in stock. Wet spot is my local LFS and they have gotten me fish I couldn't find anyplace. Also the level of care they provide to there stock is unheard of at most places.
