The New Arrivals for my LFS this week. Large Clown Loaches! You buggers! The ones they have are COVERED in ick, and tiny, so maybe they got some nice big ones, ick free, from someone? ARGH. Lord, why do you mock me??

maybe you can get some and QT them. in a couple weeks your tank should *crosses fingers* be back to normal. then you could try the clowns again.

Naw, I'm going to wait until the tank has aged some before trying clowns again.

I have GOT to get a lighter background for this tank. When the RTS is swimming around, he blends completely into the background and doesn't show on camera. The only time you can see him is against the ugly substrate.

When I was on my Clown loach hunt I went to this store in Peterborough called Red Fish Blue Fish it used to specialize in Salt Water aquariums now its a African Cichlid store the website was awesome had all kinds of deals on it like different aquariums and additive so one night I drove up there since I wanted to go to the PJ's Pet there and Petarama anyways when I got there it was a tiny store with nothing in it everything was catalogue order he told me he could go to wholesalers and get me what I wanted plants fish etc, I told him that I wanted Clown Loaches he told me that they were the worst fish ever for disease and that all of them come with internal parasites that no matter what If I bought them they should be treated. I ended up buying my loaches that night from pjs with the Bosemani Rainbows they came in the same tank and had been there for a long time this store has a really good reputation for having a good fish guy and knowing how long fish had been there. When stores bring fish in for sales I get really nervous now even more so then ever I have never had ich in my aquariums not sure if its from the uv sterilizers both my tanks have them I always add a slime coat when adding fish also

OK needed a fish break from the newsletter for Boxer Rescue I am working on

Shortly after I bought the clowns the store noticed ick on the remaining ones. Had I only waited a day, lol. Pain in the butt. Hopefully the dying has stopped.

Finally caught the Betta on camera, actually moving for a change.
