  1. Hello everyone! I was just wondering if anyone had any experience keeping dojo loaches and nerite snails in the same tank? For context, I am setting up a 60gal goldfish tank this weekend. Currently, I have 1 fancy goldfish, 5 white cloud minnows, 2 olive and 2 zebra nerite snails in my 20gal that are going to be moved to this 60gal. I have fallen in love with my nerite snails 🐌 they are so active and keep the tank pristine. But when I started planning for this 60gal, it was always my intention to get 1 or 2 dojo loaches. I just can't have a tank without some bottom feeders! But I quickly realized my mistake in buying these nerites, I'm not sure I want to risk them! I've seen some people online say they've kept them and the dojos leave their snails alone, but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience keeping the two species together. I'm debating just getting the dojos and chancing it, or buying a bunch more snails for a little army. Thank you in advance for any advice!
  2. I was watching todays F1 race this morning and noticed one of my Dojo's planking on my driftwood. Bonus Dojo, on its usual Fluval E-series perch, and the third under some new crypts.
  3. So I decided to give root tabs another go in my 72g. I gave up root tabbing a while ago because my Dojo loaches just dig them up and chew the tabs all happy like. So I planted 7 root tabs this morning with my weekly water change and it looks like the dang dojos got 3 of them. Does anyone have any solutions for this besides using some food to get their interests elsewhere? That only works so much. Is there another way to get nutrients into the substrate? I've been using the co-op root tabs which are capsules. Is there another type of tab that is more of a tablet than capsule? Any help would be appreciated. Bonus image of a basking dojo after he's torn up a root tab.
  4. Hey everyone, Something really cool just happened! I went on offerup and randomly searched dojo loach. I sort of have a ritual of doing that and usually nothing comes up. But today there was a 20 gallon planted tank with some fish, including two dojo loaches!!! Plus since my family doesn't really like my fish keeping hobby and have to drive me to get stuff because I don´t have a car I was very excited when they said they could pick them up this afternoon when they are in the area. It is just crazy to think this morning I had no idea I would have 2 new awesome fish by night time! I love when stuff like this lines up perfectly! Have a nice rest of your day everyone!!!
  5. Hello all, I have an empty 150 gallon stock tank. I was going to begin my 3rd fancy goldfish colony, however I do have 2 other 150 gallon stock tanks with fancies, so I’d like to go in a different direction. As for filtration, it will have a XL sponge filter rated for 200 gallon that is currently running in another stock tank. It will also have a 4” Hygger air stone. It will have a black sandy bottom with tons of Val, and other plants to come (still undecided). Question is, is this adequate for a school of about 6 dojo’s? Are they escape artists? I was also thinking of starting with 1 dojo and stocking heavily with Goyder river rainbow fish. Anyways, any thoughts, feedback, or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly, Manny
  6. I was wondering if anyone has had similar issues to what I am seeing. I have a community tank with the following: Size- 150gal Filtration- Sump (Seamless Sump with Reservoir) Levels- 7.2-7.5, all balanced and cycled Fish- 3 Comet Goldfish (10-14in), 4 Dojo Loaches (14-16in for 2, 4in for 2), 2 Bristlenose Plecos Substrate- Sand, large rocks I am seeing both my large and small Dojo loaches begin to mouth on my large Goldfish (potentially for slime coat?), the smaller ones in particular I caught today picking at the gills of the Goldfish. The tank is long cycled, and I have started to run plants (quarantined and safe before use) in my sump to help with waste in the system. I always have an algae issue (currently adjusting time of lighting and plants to help) but I haven't seen any other issues show up. Has anyone else had this issue where their Dojo's have begun to potentially feed on their Goldfish? Should I begin to setup a new home for them to separate? For reference, the only time I have observed this behavior in the past was when they began to mouth on a sick Oranda, but no illness has been seen with the current Goldfish at all. Thank you all for your help.
  7. pH 7.6 Nitrates 20 Hardness 2 Nitrite 0 Ammonia 0 KH/Buffer 7 Water Temperature 73 My dojo is clearly sick, I’m not too sure what it is. Noticed it yesterday, he’s slightly more lethargic than usual and has these weird spots. The one area on his back looks almost slightly yellowish but there’s also white on him, looks like his slime coat coming off sort of. Any input is appreciated, I’m going to do a water change and maybe up the temp a few degrees. Nothing new has been added to the tank and no other fish is sick. Tank is always stable.
  8. I recently watched a co op video and noticed there was a fully grown dojo loach in @Cory 800 gallon clown loach tank. Everything I’ve read suggests this isn’t ok, but every fiber of my being wants it to be ok, because I currently have clowns in a hot tank, and dojo’s in a nearly room temperature (colder, 73) tank. It would open up opportunities for me if I can keep them together, as that was my plan before reading dojo’s are supposed to be colder, like goldfish. Whereas clowns thrive above 80 (mine stay 82 minimum) degrees. So, according to the internet, keeping clowns and dojo’s in the same tank is the same as keeping discus and goldfish together. Is it bad? I am not one to be over sensitive when it comes to fish keeping ethics, people drive me insane crying about overstocking (just because maintenance is required doesn’t make a tank over stocked) but according to information on the internet these fish can’t be together. Dojo’s lifespan is cut in half in warm water is what I read. How can an average joe like me know what’s accurate, or if this is true? Have others here kept fish at “not ok” temperatures?
  9. Water Parameters: pH -6.5 Nitrite - 0ppm Nitrate - 40ppm Hardness (GH) - 120ppm KH/Buffer - 0ppm Water Temperature - 76 F Ammonia - 0ppm My Dojo Loach has this strange red spot on his face. It has been there for a bit and just recently appears to have gotten larger. This morning I noticed that he starts to have small bumps on his body and small white dots. Sorry about the images, I know it is hard to see, but please can someone help me? I am new to fish keeping and really want to help him. Someone mentioned that it might be ich developing so I am going to go get some ich meds today after work. Is this what is happening?? How about the red spot on his face? Is the gravel scratching his face? Can it be heater burn? Please help me, I am so afraid for him T_T. Behavior wise, he is eating like normal and very active swimming all around the tank. Please let me know if you need any other information or images or anything. Also, sorry all the images are sideways, not sure how to get them to be the right orientation >_<
  10. https://s.amsu.ng/EQLm3kLVauzN Poor thing started with it looking like he had scratched himself maybe on wood while swimming, but the fishes and the wood have all been in there for over 2 years. We had another Dojo same type, bought together over 2 years ago, that got this and we treated with Erythromycin but he died. Now a few months later this guy has it. Please help. We have been treating this time with Maracyn we got from AC. Water test shows GH is 120, KH is 40, pH is 6.5, No2 is .5, No3 is 160. Please help, I can't stand how bad this must hurt him, btw, he's still eating and swimming but not with his normal high activity.
