I don't think anyone is going to bother telling you about the loaches anymore. Some may not bother telling you about anything anymore, after this display. Not me though - I'll keep sharing my experience with you.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

In my experience there are a great number of people that join forums. They ask their questions, have them answered, and are on their way. Most people are appreciative of the time others take to help them. Some stick around to become part of the community, some only come back when they have a problem/question. It's all good. Then there are a handful of people that ask a question, don't like the answers they get so they throw a hissy fit and leave. One can count on it as they can count on the sun rising and setting. It's tough to help someone that is close minded and only wants to hear what they want to hear. EVERYONE gets annoyed and frustrated in that situation, not just the original poster.
Chesh and jentralala like this.

The thing is, don't give your opinion if its not asked for. Did I ask anybody about my loaches? Nope I sure didn't because they are perfectly fine. And if you people can't believe that then you need to re evaluate your knowledge and go learn some things it's that simple, I am the open minded one here. Mostly everyone who commented would be considered close minded. Like I said 5 times already just because it didn't work for you doesn't mean it won't work for me ;)... but whatever read your heart out and ALWAYS believe what you read on the Internet ALL the time LOL

You asked about your stock. So people gave advice about it. Pretty certain I have more experience than you do about loaches and I don't want you to suffer long term the situation I did, and others do when they keep too few. If you want fish that are eventually going to stop eating, die off, kill other fish, or never come out be my guest though. We're only here to try to help.

That said good luck if you get into the upper world of writing actual papers, and having to back things with evidence, research, and proof. This kind of mindset of "Well what the experts say isn't always right because it doesn't agree with my own ideas" won't get you anywhere.

As they say though, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Or a fish to water...but you can't make it swim.

I know it's hard to believe, but many of us have EXPERIENCE. I don't understand why you're hung up on this "reading" business, but I don't have to understand.

So you didn't want honest feedback and input based on experience and knowledge?
