It's been a sad week..

This week I lost my Pleco, Trogdor, and my two lil clown loaches, Crusty and BoBo. Tank showed a .25 Ammonia after all fish were dead, but all 0's leading up to the deaths. :/

I guess I will try and take this opertunity to properly stock the tank. It was a 55 Gal, and had been established for over a year, but it was not stocked in a way that would be suggested by anyone heh.

  • 55 Gal x2, 30 Gal, 20 Gal, 20 Long, 10 Gal x 3, 2.5 Gal, 1 Gal
  • 4 Beta's, 3 Pleco's, 4 Convicts, 4 Fire Belly Toads, 4 Serpe Tetras, 3 Angel Fish, 5 Tiger Barbs, 2 Rosey Barbs, 2 Cherry Barbs, 2 Odessa Barbs, 2 YoYo Loaches, 3 Ottos, 2 Yellow Labs, 2 Snails, 1 Black Tiger Barb, 1 Pictus Cat, 1 Balla Shark, 1 Rainbow Shark, 1 Ghost Shrimp, 1 Oscar, 2 Chinease Algea Eater,2 Tadpoles

So sorry to hear that. It's especialy tough to lose more than one at a time :( :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yeah when ever I lose a fish I'm always like "thats it no more fish, whenver these all die off im done..." Luckilly I have a bazillion fish, and I always seem to find another one that I really want at the LFS long before another one dies, and thus my enthusiasim for fish keeping is reborn. I hate losing plecos most of all too. I dunno. It just seems like they are so hardy that they should never die from anything other then old age. But I have had rough luck with plecos. I use to try and keep non common plecos. I have had a couple clown plecos and a marble horn pleck, but all of them died within a few months and never could figure out why. This was years ago though.

The clown loaches hit me really hard too, because out of all my fish those and the YoYo's are by far my favorites.
