Instead they're Pangio cuneovirgata - DWARF LOACHES. They may or may not be young, but they ARE full-grown, or nearly! Since they're so small, I figure I can have MORE of them than I was planning with the other species, lol, so now I have 10 of 'em in QT, can't wait to get them into the main tank! Oh, plus the one lonely un-banded guy that rode in with the rest. I'm assuming he's a baby black/java/coffee/cinnamon/whatever loach, but I guess time will tell!
So. . . what future stocking plans have you? Or are you going to stick with the Gourami, rasa, and loachlings?
Yeah, after I replied I went back and finished reading to the end. I'm so jealous! Are you still going to get 5 more regular "kuhli", or are you going to stick with 5? You mentioned that they do well with just the 5 but I can't remember what you said for definite, aha. I'm glad you kept the java one, I totally agreed with your husband. I bet he's a thousand times happier with you, than he would be elsewhere. Someone would have probably bought him and kept him singly.
I am so jealous though...dwarf loaches? I can't even with the cuteness of that.
Well, no more new species that's for sure :) I already feel a bit over-stocked with all the rasboras plus the gourami. I keep debating on whether or not they're comfortable in there or not, they seem to be, but they also seem a bit, well, big
, especially compared to the rasboras. All I'm planning on adding now are more loaches as I find them. I'm hoping my somewhat better LFS can get them ordered in for me.
