I am in the process of redoing my whole set-up here as I have some new fish coming and I had absolutely no more room.  So here is what I have done.

Tank 1 (12 gallon) Blaze - Betta; Tuck, Nip - Otos; Sid, Mickey, Zippy, Flash - Dwarf Loaches

Tank 2 (12 gallon) Nate - Betta; Winky, Dinky - Cories; Wiggle, Tweak - Dwarf Loaches; Alpha, Delta - Otos

Tank 3 (12 gallon) Alexander - Betta; Dopey, Dingbat - Otos; Herkimer - Zebra Pleco

Tank 4 (25 gallon divided)
  Side 1   JT - Betta; Sleepy, Doc - Otos; Pinky, Blue - Dwarf Loaches
  Side 2   Marty Jr. - Betta;  Ebb, Flow - Otos; Dot, Dash - Dwarf Loaches

I think I have totally gone crazy in this house and now it is either the fish or me if I add one more thing.  It is a sad thing when a person cannot have a bed because the room has to be used for a fish tank  ROFL  ;D

The biggest tank is indeed going in my bedroom and the others will remain where the 5 gallon tanks were and in the living room.  I will get pictures out when all the changes are made.

LOL Rose ...maybe you could fit in a chair somewhere to sleep on?? ;D lol hehehe  Heh I'm afraid I am going to have to diagnose you with extremely severe...MTS.

Wow a Zebra Pleco...that's Soooo cool!!!  Well I can't wait to see pics of all the new fishies and tanks.  

PS hey maybe I'll have to come over and steal some of those 5 gals if you are no longer using them... ;D JK (I wish...)  My parents have put the limit at 3 tanks plus a q....*pout*
Oh sorry I'm getting off subject again... ;D

Well the guy that is selling the Zebra says it is too small yet so I do not have it yet, but I will.

I am ordering 4 Dwarf Loaches that are listed here and the cost of the fish is $19.95 each and the shipping is $35.00 I believe. They are very tiny and will not quite get to the 2" listed (maybe 2" with the tail). Some others I saw get a bit bigger but these guys just do not seem to grow much.



They are also available here but these folks are hard to get to ship. They want warm weather before they will ship.



I have always ordered from LiveAquaria.com because they pack and ship the fish very well and I have never had a problem with getting healthy fish from them so I get the Loaches from them, the Otos locally, the Cories off of eBay, and the Bettas from Miami Aquariums.

I got the third 12 gallon put partially together today and I am really tired but I think once they are all set up I will have a lot less problems with the bigger tanks than with the 5 gallon tanks. I love the 5 gallon Hex tanks but I just wanted to be able to have more fish and this was the only thing I could do. Now when the 25 gallon gets here I can get everyone put away and in their new homes pretty much after all the quarantining them. It may be a month before I will have finished and complete tanks to picture.

The only problem with liveaquaria is they don't ship to Canada.

Unfortunately, neither does the other place. The first time I saw them a good friend pointed them out to me on Aquabid but you had to buy a lot of 6 and at that time I couldn't. It may be a possibility for you. I am afraid that the import problems of the Canadian Customs is making it very difficult. ALL things fish and fish supply type get quarantined and it will not be easy to get past that.

Thanks. I might just have to go with coolie loaches instead because I bought 2 today and haven't stopped wathing them, even for supper, and if you know me personally, I love to eat but stay healthy(some say high motabolism). Thanks again.
