KittenFishMom Posted September 27, 2022 Share Posted September 27, 2022 I had 2 yoyo loaches, and one disappear a few days ago. I finally gave up looking and bought a new one for my single yoyo loach. I also added 3 khuli loaches. Today I found the missing yoyo loach under a khuli loach. It was very small and did not move when the khuli loach swam away. I thought the yoyo was dead and started to pick it up off the bottom. It swam slowly off my fingers and I thought maybe it would perk up a bit if I left it alone. Just now I found in it the corner of the tank on it's side. I think it might have gotten trapped under an ornament when they got moved during cleaning I put some tank water in a food cup and added some water and ripped up IAL and some ACO Easy fry food and am holding the flat bottom of the cup on my thigh with my hand around the cup to maintain the temp and darkness. This is not a long term solution, but I wanted to keep track of the little guy while I wrote to the forum. Any advice? Should I put him back in the tank, or set up a small hospital tank? I know they like company, but I don't think I can catch the other yoyo loaches or khuli loaches with the plants in the tank. The tank has extra male guppies, so is a bit over stocked. There is plenty of detritus in the tank. The water parms have been steady for the last 3 days. I was expecting to do a water change tomorrow. He seem more upright, but might just be leaning against the side of the cup. He just turned around. I think he might be eating the fry food. Or my hand might be moving a bit, and worrying him. I could do a hospital tank or a hang on back breeder box or put him back in the tank. The breeder box up-lift water intake, and and over flow output. Thanks in advance.
