So we are now down to our one lonely female Cheni. Named Patch. She is pretty feisty, but then most of our Female Cheni always have been, to the point where we thought they were the males at first!!! :roll:
Anyway if anyone has an excess of them they are looking to get rid of or know where any are being sold. Surrey, UK area, but we also go to Aylesbury for and Sheffield from time to time and Crowland of course:wink:
Whitey and Madduff, do you still have yours?
Most of you know which loaches they are, but if you don't the pictures on LOL will help.

How are the Rasbora's doing that Les got?
Pardon my honesty - I am a Northerner
14 loach species bred, which will be next?
We went through a bad spot a while back when one by one our Cheni just wasted away, it was devastating to watch. We also lost a few Rasboras at that time the water was fine although nitrate was a bit raised. Since then I have been waging war on the population of red cherry shrimp (the LFS is sick of the sight of me with bags full of shrimp for them) but no matter how many I scoop out there seem to be ever more of them. It was very noticeable that the instant a fish started to slow down or lose weight the shrimp would be there bothering them, things have been better with fewer shrimp but I took action too late.
The tank still looks like it is just populated with shrimp most of the time but we still have 5 lovely Gastromyzon zebrinus, one Gastromyzon viriosus and the lonely Cheni.
