Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Hi Maarten B. I have a Agamyxis pectinifron or a Spotted Talking Catfish. He's/She's been hiding out where the clowns snooze during the day. I keep checking on him/her to make sure its still alive and sure enough hiding up top is the catfish. I'm considering putting this one in my 55 gallon with my ...

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Hi. I finally got my tank up and running and it's perfect. I lost a few fish but not my clowns. They hid for a few weeks and only recently all 4 started coming out. I got 6 new young ones and am planning on adding 2 more bigger ones closer to 4-5" long like my current ones. It was tough going for a ...

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Hi Bas Pels. I agree. Thank you for the advice on other fish. I was given all of these fish when I bought the tank. So, I'm setting up specifically a clown loach tank and add some friends for them that will complement them. I will look at the ones you've mentioned as well as others from that region....

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Yes, mikev. I'm thinking that too. Though it did state that each filter can handle up to 200 gallons. I will try them and see how well they work. If it's not enough, I will certainly add another. The woman who currently has the tank has two Rena canister filters and she says they work great. So, I'l...

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Thanks Maarten B for your insight. I am wondering... do you use a sump filter and a canister filter or two at the same time? I will have a 55 gallon tank available once I move my fish over to the new tank to use as a sump tank. Will that be enough of a tank for a 225 gallon tank to create a sump fil...

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Thanks again mikev. I've been going over so calculations that I'm becoming a math wiz... just kidding. Are the Cascades easy to maintain? Have you had any trouble with them? Also, with your large aquarium, how do you do water changes? Do you have a barrel to dechlorinate the water? I've watched and ...

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Thanks Mikev. I didn't think about three canisters...maybe I should get two more powerful ones to do the trick. I will look around some more and see what's out there without breaking the bank. Thanks.

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Thank you Diana. Do you recommend a different kind of canister filter? I have not bought any as of yet and am still doing research. But I will definitely add a circulation pump. It sounds like the CLs will have a great time with that device.

Re: Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Thanks redshark1. I'm very excited. My tank will be at my house in two weeks so I'm trying figure it all out beforehand to make sure things go as smoothly as possible, at least that is my hope. :)

Need help setting up a 225 gallon loach tank

Hi. I'm new to the LOF but have been reading it religiously since I got my 55 gallon tank with 4 CLs and other fish. I absolutely adore the CLs and have decided to upgrade to a 225 gallon tank (am getting an amazing deal) and add 6-11 more clown loaches of varying size. I have seen quite a few babie...
