Get em while they are hot!rostratas on sale at petsmart for5

5 bucks. It may be my local shop but check yours they are having a sale on yoyo loaches for 5 dollars each. They usually sell them for 21$ each at petsmart. Locally I have never had the opportunity to get yoyo's due to petsmart charing 21 each. Big Al's was sold so they don't carry loaches anymore. ...

This is really getting frustrating. To have the symptoms coming and going makes it even harder to tell if a particular medicine is working. How about clearing all the meds and simply working at keeping the tank as absolutely clean as possible? Organics in the water can cause problems with some meds...
