I hope it's not what would happen if I tried to remove the driftwood from my tank. My loaches can jam themselves into such small nook & crannies of the driftwood that I'm sure I'd never be able to remove the wood unless the wood went into a huge bucket and who knows when they'd ever come out. When I purchased them the guy at the LFS couldn't net them as they were all jammed into a lava rock. He had to sell the loaches to me w/ lava rock included. It was a few days before they finally came out of that rock. So, what happened to your two loaches or should I be afraid to ask?? Mine were yoyo's, just as Twister's.

Red face They ended up being just fine but..

When I took out my cave and my fake log, 2 of my loaches came with them.. I noticed one loach about 30 seconds after I took the log out of the tank.. He was flapping on my kitchen floor.. I picked him up and plopped him in the tank.... I looked hard to try to do a fish count and realized there was one more... I found him on my kitchen table ontop of a platic bag with water surrounding him...I picked him up and put him back in.
They were a bit stunned... they sat in one spot for a good 5-10 minutes after they got back in but they are still alive and healthy..... I felt horrible for a good 12 hours after all of this, I couldnt' keep my eyes off my tank to observe them.. I have only been in this hobby for 2 months and boy oh boy have I learned a few things!!!

Yeah.. My bf and I are Newbies...

We are newbies and we were excited.. We knew enough to do initial research and did do a few things right... but man.. still lots to learn. I wish I would have done a fishless cycle and I wish I didn't put fish in my tanks so quickly....
Everyone is happy and healthy except for my pink kisser (popeye) SPeaking of which... time to do a water change!!

The thing about cories - they need overhead cover to run to or they don't come out. Also, of all the cories I have and have had (Aeneus, Sterbae, Paleatus, Panda, Pygmeus, Trilineatus, CW010, Arcuatus, Habrosus, and Metae) only the Aeneus stay out almost all the time. Of the six, there are usually 4 out in the front of the tank. This in the dinig room, and there's usually someone in there. For the rest of them, you have to sit still and quietly for a bit before they come out. The Metaes and Arcuatus are pretty good about that, coming out and playing around. The Paleatus come out in ones and twos and head back to cover. The pygmeus come out and swim in the midwater in the morning, and when I had them, the habrosus did that too, but more often and more boldly.

My sterbaes don't come out much at all. They were more visible when I had 9 of them in a 55 gallon tank, but now I have 6 in a 10 (nothing else) trying to get them to breed.
