How many people does it take to catch 19 kuhlis?

    One. One single person... The question should be, "how long does it take this one person?"

    :;fru


    I'll find this funny one day. Friends will be like, "ha, remember the time your big tank leaked for the second time, and you spent more than 3 hours chasing loaches, and we laughed and said, 'see, Norwegian Pygmy mountain goats are mucheasier pets to take care of!' and you screamed at us and curled into a little ball and wouldn't talk to anyone for 6 hours? Ah, good times. Remember that?" and I'll laugh. Maybe. But I gotta catch 3917 loaches first.

    ... Then I'll laugh. :;bb

    Haha, I was just exaggerating :D I have 19. I think, anyway. Or maybe 21. No more than 21 anyway, lol.

    Sigh. Break time is over. I gotta get back to netting the slipperiest little suckers I think we can own.

    I was wondering how anybody would ever be able to count the EXACT amount of that many loaches!

    Oh, just like catching tetras. LOL. Basically drain the tank.

    YUP! found it soooo much easier to catch them that way. I also tend to have to sift the gravel with the net to find some stragglers. Which I why I hate having to tear down that tank. When I moved to the house now, I just left about 4 inches of water in the tank (put it about an inch above the substrate) and just left the fish in it during the move.
