| || | That's awesome, Gwen!! Congrats!! Those are the first species of loaches I fell in love with!! Then I fell in love with dwarf loaches (fell out of love with their average price of $15-18 each, needing 5-6 makes them way too expensive for me!!). But now that I have a sand substrate in my new 15 gallon, I think I might get 5 black kuhli loaches down the road after the tank is more established and such. Any pics of the happy loaches in their new home?

Today I put them in the bigger tank with sand subtrate and plants. From the second they got in they moved around, went on plants etc., seeming to look for food and never once, not even yet, have they gone up and down the sides of the tank. Yipeee!! I think they like it!! Whew! The dwarf rainbows were funny, checking them out when they got in the tank. Glad they could get out of the smaller tank, and I'm feeling hopeful that 2 weeks was long enough to wait for any illness. I know some say longer, but I was tired of watching them seem miserable. Gwen
