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.

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.
