Re: dojo/weather loach question

Re: Well rounded loach diets.

I take pre-cooked peeled frozen shrimp and cut it with a steak knife on a teacup plate. Then dice it into smaller bits. By the time I get to the tank its mostly unthawed.

Re: dojo/weather loach question

i ended up adding 5 dojos to my 125 - amazing fish and more active than all my beloved loaches. Today we put our kids hands in the tanks (4 year old and 18 month old) and they were having a ball with the dojos nibbling on their tiny fingers! They'll literally swim into your palm with or without food...

Re: My yoyos are dying

I got hooked on loaches with yoyos and had A LOT of bad experiences. From the best I can gather - somehow these guys are the most diseased ridden fish sold. Forgive me if you're a solid fish dealer. My best guess, is the stress from transport causes these guys to give their infections the upper hand...

Re: So Much For the Fishless Cycle

Re: Clown loach laying eggs

There are a lot of hosting sites, youtube.com for videos is incredibly easy. For images imgur.com is easy as well.
