Re: ID Please Serpent body large head

not the slightest idea, but these dudes look really cool! Think they're a loach?

Re: Ich?

Its day 12. with 33 degree celcius. I am no longer seeing whitespot on loaches. Its amazing clown loaches can still survive 33 deg celcius. Otocinclus too. They are eating well and clicking stick with it, as many told me, keep after it for at least a week until you feel it really has left the tank....

Re: Help me build the perfect loach tank

Such a cool night! Performed a big water change to both tanks and netted up the kubotias and golden zebras into a bucket with the 55 gallons tank water. Tonight I learned that netting loaches is a challenge! :lol: :lol: Per Nancys advice I left the 2 yoyos in the 55 but moved over the rest of the lo...

Re: Ich?

Wow, just converted your Celsius temp, 90+ Fahrenheit seems awful high to me, but then again I am a noob!

Re: Help me build the perfect loach tank

My son had a serious meltdown after he saw the goldfish in the 125, so i moved him back to the 55. Moved over the two angels instead. They're fine tank and parameters are 0/0 ammonia/nitrate and nitrite is 10-20. That orange reading on the API looks dog gone near the same to me lol! Nancy, based off...

Re: Help me build the perfect loach tank

Either add fish or keep dosing ammonia...maybe only to 1 ppm. You're tank is cycled. It "should" be able to get rid of 1 or 2 ppm ammonia in 24 hours...but test & adjust ammonia as needed, you may not need to dose every day. What's your plan for adding fish? What species & how many? You want rock s...

Re: Help me build the perfect loach tank

Sidenote: Is that LFS in Hammond indiana any good? It's one of the few in the area I haven't been able to check out. I've visted most of the stores in the Chicago area and I think I'd only buy from 3-4 out of the ones I've visited. Not sure, I don't make out that way very often - it's about 2 hours...
