The two older loaches seem to be buddies and the smaller ones still roaming separately in their own group of 2. I noticed that with mine when I introduced baby loaches and it is mostly because the baby ones don't trust the bigger fish yet. Eventually they'll all establish a bigger group and stick together.
The tiniest teensy has come a long way—very curious and active. I’m happy about that. For the first couple months it hid ALL the time. Some days I thought he didn’t make it.
All good. Thanks again,Loach.
TDS has stayed the same at 162.
Tank has been going well. I couldn’t hold out not adding baking soda and I had added two teaspoons. This was on the 17th. I’ve checked parameters several times and just did a 1/3 wc today.
TDS was up to 182 and is back to 147.
I did not check KH yet. It was at 3 before I started. I didn’t add baking soda this time so far and I changed less water. I will check it tomorrow.
Nitrate was at 20. PH 8.0
All inhabitants look very well and the silver dollar with lump is out a lot! The hole is getting smaller. Hard to believe that 3 months ago I expected it to have died figuring the lump was cancerous. Today it’s amazing. Loach, thank you for checking in. Here is short video.
And the tank is looking great. I noticed your good surface movement which is nice to see in a tank as oxygen is everything.
Yeah I’m really still in awe of the whole silver Dollar transformation. Thanks for your support.
And have a great weekend.
Thanks! I never expected this fish to survive going from a prominent lump, to the lump breaking through the muscle wall exposed to the elements and then surviving the open wound, which, is healing wonderfully—especially for ten year old fish! So yes, I’m happy. And the rest of the crew looks to be doing well also.
Loach. I haven’t added any baking soda since the last 30% w/c and the KH is 3. So I’m leaving well enough alone right now.
