No,I had six zebra danios and a swordtail,they died after about a month(toxic stuff high)then I decided to finish by adding fresh fish food as a supplement to fish food proccessed by the fish.THEN I added the pleco just to be sure it was safe.

How do you tell about "doc"

I have a cycled 55 gallo tank which I am planing on having a few clown loaches in,and I'm saving for a bigger one.I read that clowns are sensitive to dissolved organic compounds,and I wanted to know how you test for those.
