I have tank of 2.5-1.5-1.5 (in feet) with 8mm glass (Approx 42 gallons)
currently I have,
3 Swordtails (1 Male 2 female)
8 Tiger Barbs
2 Clown Loaches
My tank is 1 & half month old & all other fishes also except I added clown loaches yesterday.
I will buy more 2-3 Clown Loaches after few days. And I am aware that Clown Loach
grow so big but mine are small yet & as they grow slow I am not bothering now. I will upgrade my tank later after year.
I also have 1 plant in my tank but dont know its name :D lol
I have some queries as follows:
1. I have gravel (not sand) in my tank,do I need sand ? I heard that Clown Loaches need sand only.
2. How frequently should I change my water & in what quantity ?
3. I currently feed them flake but its not sinking flake. Its floating flake & it rarely sinks down. My Clown Loaches dont come on the top swordies & tiger barbs ate everything. Thats why I put blanched cucumber in my tank. One of my Clown Loach
seemed to be eating but another one not interested yet. What food should I feed them ? Sinking pellets or what ?
4. Fish waste eliminate automatically or I have to remove them manually while cleaning tank ?
Your answers would help me & suggestions are also welcomed.
Thank you all in advance
