    For some reason my loach keeps loosing his whiskers to the point were they are basically stub points I really have no clue why he acts normal and happy it's just that sometimes his whiskers grow back long but then go away again within 2 weeks or so my corys seem fine and he is a baby still only had him for a year and he lives in a 20 gallon for now and has peas 2 times a day for his food he is pictures of him when he lost almost all his whiskers fbc4b6edcf9b1431ab201759ac221702.jpg
    This next picture is a recent picture today that he is starting to loose his whiskers again 9c7cea6c5cd2dde0234f0d931c6b4bdc.jpg

    The substrate is wearing them off. They should only be kept on sand.
