Re: My new 1000 liters clown loaches tank (page 22)

Indeed guys...

As you might have read in late pages of this topic, it was a dream to be acomplished in a lifetime. And it became possible right close to my birthday. Cycling is expected to finish very close to my 50 years old aniversary (october 9th - gifts can be shipped to Brazil) :mrgreen:

Unfortunately, there´s no room for a larger tank on my living room. I think this will be the biggest one I can have here.

Re: new loach home

Hello corius,

First of all, I would have 5+ Clown loaches, not 4. I also recomend use of big leaf plants like Anubia. Cave rocks and wood are also very apreciated.

Marcos.

New Videos for my tank: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd6lDj5CfRQ This one is pecking fight between #1 and #2. Looks like there will be an inversion in th...

Re: My clown loaches

I have read a couple reports that they use to grab and suck mucus of slow fishes like Discus but I never see them doing that. Yes, I do have another CAE at the Discus tank.
