Hi all, For those that have been following my debacles over the last week and a bit, you would know that I am expecting a shipment of live plants today. I've checked the tracking number just now, and the package is en route locally to my house (just don't know where I am in the delivery route!). My question is this: In the package are 4 new clown loaches (to bring my juvenile brood to 8). How long can I keep the loaches in the bag/s for? The reason I ask is that I want to give my new plants a chance to bring down the ammonia levels (about 4 hours), then introduce the loaches. And yes, I realise I should have let the tanks finish cycling before buying loaches, but I ordered these before I realised how bad my tank was going to mini-cycle! :;fru Thanks for all your suggestions! End note: And for those of you with concerns, the loaches are all going into my 180g arriving mid-april. Right now they are all very small and loving the lightly stocked 46g.
