    Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 9.37.14 PM.pngScreen Shot 2016-06-28 at 9.35.20 PM.png I just looked at my biggest tank and I am headed here, lol...

    I am going to rehome 10 loaches if I can ever catch them (it is like impossible- I am hoping that when they get bigger it will be easier) and they are going to get into a bigger tank. I am going to rehome some of my siamese algae eaters as soon as they finally get rid of the darn algae. lol... Other than that. My tank is ok for temporary. But one of those is my current % stock and one is adult



    What is the treatment??!?!

    Lol, mine isn't that bad, but I am scared of getting that way. I can put some in my other ones, I am trying to figure out which ones. lol... There is one that is very ugly and huge, that id like to put in the back but he is too fast.

    lol I looked at it again and mine isn't near that bad, but if they grow to adulthood yes lol... his fish are so ugly, who would buy those lolhttps://vimeo.com/172666559

    this is my tank with most loaches hiding....

    however, I dont have more fish than those. actually I have a little less. Those would be the stats if none died since buying them. I know some have, but that is about accurate. Just slightly high

    To help catch the loaches, I'd get a clean empty glass bottle with a narrow opening, put something tasty inside and wait for them to swim inside to eat. Then you can scoop out the bottle and voila!

    Yep!!! So far I moved 12 fish over to an understocked tank. I will move some loaches within the coming weeks.
