Great photos!

I really like the stripe pattern on your histrionica, it's a very pretty fish. Quite a bit different from any of my histies.

Thanks.

I like the pattern on this Histionica, especially the tail, much bolder lines than on a YoYo ;)

I got mine from two sources.
One group was very skinny and a few died within a couple of weeks, but the rest went on to thrive :D

I love that they are usually swimming together in a group :wink:

I love those pictures! I can't count mine either. I have no idea if any of mine have died. I *should* have 21.

I wish I could get more dwarf chain loaches, have you seen any recently in the GTA ?

Hey Loach fans,

At the beginning of December, a friend of mine gave me his last Syncrossus berdmorei loach.
It was very skinny, I could barely look at it without shuddering, his others had died over several months.
He had a group of them in with African Cichlids, but I suspect that the cichlids ate the food before it fell
to the bottom of the tank for the loaches :(

Four weeks later and this loach is filling out quite nicely.

You can see it on the right with the Histrionica on the left:

Some closeups, a bit of a bulge in the stomach area, very active, tough to get a shot:
Image

Image

I think a full recovery is near :)
