Anyhoo, will this 28g tank serve well as a quarrantee tank for 3 of these guys? I believe they are Sewellia lineolata. Will post pics as soon as I figure out the new camera I got a few days ago!
I dropped the water level a few inches to increase water flow and it has some driftwood and rocks with good algae cover. Also lots of hiding spots. Temp is at 77F, 0 ammonia, ph is a bit high at 7.5
I added a powerhead for more flow on the opposite end of the Aquaclear filter so they have LOTS of flow now. I hope they will be happy.
I plan to quarantee them for a month or so, but how long can 4 stay happy in a 28G bowfront? They look so little right now compared to the tank. Would I be ok adding a few more?
Anybody have some ideas of what might be a good tankmate or dither if they can stay in this tank for awhile?
Thanks in advance
I started out with 3 of them in a 10gl for about a year and they were ok and even bread.
They are now in a 20gl with 2 more and a few other types. They have bread a couple of time but the fry have never made it.. I think the white clouds have had a hand. (or mouth) in that.
I think I have a total of 12 fish in the 20 now.. and as long as I keep up the 50% weekly water changes I don't have problems.
On this forum, you will have to be careful following internet links from first time posters. In many cases the website where you end up will not be realted to loaches. I'm afraid I'm putting it mildly, I never try them.
