  1. Hi everyone! Hoping someone that has owned dwarf chain loaches can chime in and help me out. Recently I lost one of my yoyo loaches and only have 1 left in my community tank, and am wanting to figure out a solution to his social needs now that his companion is gone. You can check out my thread here for more context. Basically, I have a tank that is pretty stocked and smaller than I would feel comfortable to have 3-4 yoyo loaches in it. But I don't want my remaining yoyo to be alone for the remainder of his life. I was wondering if he would school with and interact with dwarf chain loaches? I would be much more comfortable having a higher number of these in the tank with him, instead of just 1 or 2 more yoyos. Any input would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi everyone, I was shopping for a mystery snail to go with my goldfish, and I really wanted one for community tank as well. However, I have a pair of golden zebra loaches in my community tank. Do you think they would eat something as big as a mystery snail? Does anyone have experience successfully keeping the two species together/ Thank you in advance! 💙🐌
  3. Hi, I have a 15g Fluval Flex and am very interested in loaches, I know of the kuhli loach, the dwarf chain loach, and the hillstream loach. Are there any other small species that could work in my tank? Thanks, Jack
  4. 5 months ago I casually mentioned to my Fiancée I wouldn’t mind keeping an aquarium, now she bombards me with stuff for my new hobby. I love her to death. Now I’m at a point with my tanks that I have engorged information and it has somewhat paralyzed me. What is next and how can I be better? My plants are not looking good in my 10 gallon, I’m fighting ICK now as well, White Algae/Mold is cropping up and I keep vacuuming it away. I added more bottom feeders (trouble w/ snails only shrimp) and stopped feeding as much but nada. Perfect time for my Molly to birth. 3 Molly, 2 balloon Molly, 2 guppy, and 2 loach. I was gifted loaches from a moving friend and I couldn’t find space for a 20+ tank for them. My 5 gallon has slight ICK, the plants have tons of new growth, so does algae. 2 Molly, 1 balloon Molly. My Molly fry I moved into a 2 1/2 before my ICK issues but that tank is in need help with white algae/mold, so more shrimp it is, nada. 37 Molly fry I don’t have a picture of when the 10 gallon was bad but I had to take the thing almost apart to clean everything. 8/9 hour lighting all tanks. I will except any advice, thoughts, good intentions, or scrutiny at this point to become learned. Thank You for support.
  5. Mostly convinced based on behavior and faint panda pattern this is my first panda loach fry. Which for qualifies in the "that is nuts" category for me if it proves out. Only other fish in that rack system of tanks are a limia p group, a variatus platy group, khuli loaches, and an cousin to barbatus group growing out. There were flagfish about 3 weeks ago in the sump along with hundreds of snails but i recall flagfish fry having a little different mouth structure and orientation was more of an overbite. Anyone think this definately is or is not a panda loach?
  6. What are the effects of carpeting an aquarium on corydoras, bristlenose plecos and kuhli loaches?

  10. The other day I figured out my loaches would wiggle with me and I’m having so much fun! I can’t do it too often though or they get bored with it.
  11. What type of loach would go well in a 10 gallon that also isn't afraid to chow down on some bladder snails?
  12. My red-tail botia loach is so shy. We rarely get to see her at all. We call her "Peek-a-Boo", because she just very rarely pokes her little head out to say "Hi." (And just in case someone doesn't know our story, a not-local LFS sold 2 botias to my husband saying they were dwarf chain loaches. My husband didn't know any better and thought he could trust them. We lost one in a jumping accident just a week or so after bringing them home. We were completely unprepared for them. I did research, but there's not a lot out there. Everything I read just repeats the other sites I read. We know she needs to be in a group, but we don't have a tank big enough for them. So we keep her singly, and try to give her a good quality of life.) I just recently got a new light for Peek-a-Boo's tank, as we were adding the baker's dozen of Green Tiger Barbs and I really wanted to see those colors in the 20-gallon long. This light has setting for white, blue and white/blue combos, as well as varying degrees within each color. I had just noticed some algae growing on my sponge filters one evening, so I lowered the lighting down to about 30% strength. (I'd planned to hit the algae with Easy Carbon over the weekend.) The next morning when the timer turned the light on, I saw Peek-a-Boo out in the tank. She seems to really love the new spider wood in the tank. What was so AWESOME though was that for the next hour or so, I got to watch her swim around and loosely school with the barbs. It was amazing!!! She's so agile and can hover in one place with tiny little fluttery movements of her fins. She didn't chase anybody but swam around and did her own thing. She even stayed out when I fed them!!! This has been such a surprise to me! I had NO idea that just by dimming the lights, I could start enjoying this beautiful fish. So now, for several hours each day, I keep the lights at a low setting and each day she comes out and swims and plays like she's finally loving the tank and loving her life. I am so, so happy about that. It has been such a beautiful surprise.
