KUHLII LOACH




MORE KUHLII




YET AGAIN, KUHLII LOACH. THERE ARE FIVE IN THE TANK, BUT THEY'RE A BIT CAMERA SHY STILL.




THIS IS MAMA LOACH, THE GF NAMED HIM BEFORE I HAD A CHANCE TO SEX HIM (EW, THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE STRANGE)

Another short video of the Loaches. I tried to get more of the Kuhlis, but the Dojo's are always trying to steal the show.

Hope you enjoy it.

The dojo loaches are not eating your shrimp?

The fish look comfy in their home.

From your videos you seem to have a considerable water current; the cardinals (Paracheirodon axelrodi) are making quite an effort to swim against it and when they rest it drives them back. These fish occur in quiet still waters thick with vegetation. Are there areas in this aquarium where the water is not moving? Constant efforts fighting against a current may be detrimental to fish like cardinals that are not naturally adapted for these conditions.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I was unaware of the Tetra's origins, thank you. There is quite a bit of 'still' water in the aquarium, I have one Hydor 1 in the right rear corner pointed toward the center front. The left side and most of the rear of the tank are very calm. The Tetras and the Rasboras seem to have a lot of fun swimming into the current, then drifting back over and over again. The Tetras do spend most of their time in the center of the tank or in the right rear of the tank below the Hydor. The current throught most of the tank is just enought to make the plants sway a bit.
