    Hello everyone. I made this account a few years ago and never stuck around. I have had a hectic time since I started my 55 gallon tank, but I've come to a point where I can finally invest in my tank. However, I wanted to find out what happened to my Yoyo Loaches last year, and why. Back in...

    I'm just looking for advice on treating my yoyo loaches with Ich. They're in a tank with glass shrimp and Fundulus Cingulatus. I'm in the process of raising the temp to 86F right now. I'm also assuming that my other 3 tanks may be infected as I do water changes using the same buckets. After a...

    I have several tanks that somehow got pond/bladder snails. I have the following size tanks and quick specs. I am looking for a small loach that is friendly and will eat all my little snails, I have ramshorn, Bladder/pond, and Malaysian trumpet snails. He/she can live in any of the following...

    Apologies for the wall of text. I just wanted to be thorough. Ok, so I am SOMEWHAT new to fishkeeping. A friend gave me an established tank years ago which I never had any problems with. I've since moved to a new continent and I don't know any fishy people here so I have nobody to ask, and...

    Hi everyone, I need help reducing the population of mini-ramshorn snails in my 600L planted aquarium. I accidentally introduced them and they are having a great old time in my tank. They are the very small ones (1-2mm). While I admit that they haven't actually done anything bad (they seem to...

    Good evening :) I am at the wonderful planning stage of a new aquarium, it's very exciting, I feel like a painter in front of a blank canvas! I just purchased a 55g tank off of Craigslist. I have put down sand with a sub layer of FloraMax and planted 6 plants. I plan on purchasing more...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi- This is my first post and I have a question about a snail population problem in my tank. I have done a lot of research on here, and I find that the loaches are the way to go to eat up the issue of my snails. The question I have is the type of loach. I'm thinking yo-yo? But then again I...

    I'm thinking about getting either dwarf chain loaches or kuhli loaches for my tank. A couple of questions... Do you prefer one species over another? Or perhaps have another species of loach I should consider? Is Eco-Complete too rough for them since they burrow. On that note, are they going...
