All salts, which increase the hardness still remain in the tank. We have to remember about that. Of course when we refill evaporated water with 100% RO water tha...

Re: I am new and messed up

I guess if they had any growth stunting or disease, they would not grow or a lot slower than now? Yep, as I wrote, it can indicate that Your loaches are in a good shape :) 24"lx12"wx16"h That's not good, cause the most important thing is length (and also width) of a tank.

Re: I am new and messed up

But if You are after this decision, and you became 'loachholic' (as I can see :wink: ) that's good - now it's just only Your task to provide them a suitable tank. How long will they be ok like this or can someone push me in t...

River tank for G.ctenocephalus

Hi everyone! I'm going to start a new tank - for hillstream loaches. I was thinking about S.lineolata , but here in Poland it's hard to get them, so i have chosen Gastromyzon ctenocephalus because it is more common and relatively cheap. I want to imitate their natural habitat as good as possible and...
