    Sorry this might be a silly question but you said the tank was running for only 2 days b4 you added fish. Does that mean you didnt cycle your tank. If you didnt that might be why the loach died????

    Welcome to FishLore :)
    Keep an eye on the bettas, most times they don't play well with others.
    They can get very territorial as can your RTS.
    You might want to have a 5g up and ready in case there's trouble.

    Post some pics when you get a chance.

    Welcome to the site.

    Just a note for you, as long as you wet your hand first there is nothing wrong with handling fish. I highly doubt that is why your fish died.

    It sounds to me like your tank isn't cycled. That is probably why your fish died. You should start doing WC everyday with some ammo-lock if you didn't cycle your tank. Some vitachem would be good to.

    Sorry if I overwhelmed you, but if your tank isn't cycled time is critical.

    Hello FishBoy and Welcome :sign0016:to Fish Lore! I'm sorry to hear that you lost one of your loaches. Here is a link that you will find helpful throughout the fish keeping hobby. It's very important to know the information to help your fish survive. I know it may seem like a lot of information at one time, but we're here to help you if and when you have questions.

    The information in the link I posted is not always information given from the pet stores. Remember they are in business after all to make a sale.

    If you can share photos of your tank and fish we'd love to see them!
    Hope you enjoy the site!
