John, you're so sweet! I'm pretty sure you're the only one who actually reads my books - I appreciate it! *hugs*

I AM proud of my fishums - they're just so cool! Each type I have is so different from the others. . . and learning about them and why they do the things they do has fascinated me since my daughters talked me into setting up a tank! I'm still new to fishkeeping, so *maybe* it will wear off eventually, but for now - 10 months in - I'm still utterly enthralled. . . and I really don't see that changing, lol!

Jes, Meant to type "I can't wait till your next addition!". I am guessing you got that. I was tired this morning and starving (still am starving but can ONLY eat a liquid diet today ) LoL I am sure there are others who follow your "book"

I love reading your books. The way I see it, I don't have as much knowledge as all of you guys so I would either pick it up from experiences you've had rather than reading it from some wikipedia type websight. I can't imagine how much damage I would have done had I not had all the info JES gives me.

Awww, Kris! You'd be fine, you're the one that takes the time to learn how to do things the right way! Thanks for the props, AND for reading my books! I agree with you, I love to get information from other people's experiences - I've learned a lot through following other people's tank journals on this site. I hope your little loaches come around soon, and that you get as much enjoyment out of these amazing animals as I do!

John. . . liquid diets are a beast! Do milkshakes count? I bet that'd help fill you up!

I agree this place (people on here) is a great place for info. I am a member of several other fish forums but IMO they are not even in the same realm as this one.

Jes, No it has to be ONLY clear liquids. No milk. The only thinks I can eat are Jello (but can't be red, blue, or purple) and chicken/beef broth. It sucks sucks sucks!!!

As i see Chesh is working hwr magic and inspiring people again i though it might be useful to post some care information for those of you who are considering the Kuhli Loach... Especially as it has some unusual little quirks!
Alternative Name(s): Coolie loach, Prickly Eye, Leopard Eel, Striped Loach
Scientific Name(s): Pangio semicinta/kuhli
Category: Tropical exclusively, don't try this one in temperate or cold waters.
Difficulty: can be tricky due to the nature of its skin, and resultant sensitivities to medications. Also bear in mind that this fish will borough in the substrate so either think carefully about whether your substrate is suitable or think carefully about which substrate you choose.
Maximum Size: 10cms but rarely attaining this in any aquarium.
Minimum Tank Volume: 65 litres both aquariums and paludariums asit won't leave the water.
Minimum Tank Size: 24" x 12" x 12"
Water Temperature Range: 23-28C
Water pH Range: 4.0-7.0 please observe this one parameter for the long term good of the fish... It's not good enough to say " oh but he seems to be doing well!!!"... A too alkaline ph will, in the long term cause these thin skinned fish to have problems!
Water Hardness Range: 0-8 dGH

Good call, Snap - species info is always good to have around, and the Kuhli Loach is an odd little guy. You can also click on the shaded name of any species to be linked to our TFK profiles on this site. I don't know if I'm as inspiring as you think, though *giggle*
