Varied diet, pristine water, medium tank of 90 gallon, 8 inches of steady growth in 18 years and still growing.
Never had disease since they were cured of Whitespot on purchase. Fabulous fish in every way. I'm very proud of them.
I started mine in the tank I ultimately wanted them in but realise not everyone does that or is advised correctly. I was advised to keep them in a 3ft tank but wanted them in something bigger.
Few of us can claim to have them in perfect conditions so it is usually a compromise based on the owner's knowledge/preference rather than the fish's preference!
A river in Borneo might meet with their approval. If you haven't got one don't pretend your alternative is perfect !
You wouldnt have that problem with a V8
Loachmom, I think a 55 is okay as long as you keep up with the water changes. Who do they live with? What kind of dithers do you have? Did you look at Marcos' tank? if not, take a look at one of the ultimate loach tanks. May give you ideas.
But what do I know, I've only been keeping them for 18 years?
How modest of you. Can you tell me how fast people grow? Does it depend in any way on where they live and how they live?
