I've been haunting this site for a while now trying to sop up knowledge and get my loach fix without buying fistfuls. I just got 6 Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki on the 9th, and have had a Acantopsis choirorhynchus for several months. On to my questions--
The new sidthimunki were lost by the USPS for a day, and so in the box for 48 hours. They arrived thin. They seem to be accepting microworms and chopped freeze-dried tubifex to a degree, but still have flat bellies. Is there anything in particular I should try?
Thinness aside, I wonder also if I should treat these fish for internal parasites; they came from Frank's Aquarium but they were pretty newly in and likely not fully treated there. I do have some Levamisole here if treatment is recommended and that medication is appropriate.
Lastly, I hear faint clicks from the 55 where the horseface is, and now I hear clicks in the quarantine tank where the chain loaches are. Do either/both of these species click, or should I study my impellers?
Thank you in advance.
Frank's policy is to treat all loaches with Levamisole and administers the 1st round of treatment the day they arrive. While I'd normally use Levamisole on all incoming fish, I now exempt Frank's. Still: Levimisole is certainly appropriate and safe, so no harm if you repeat the treatment. Nearly certainly, no use either.
