Guppies and YoYo Loaches
Hi all. First post :D
I have had my 10 gallon guppy tank for about a year now and I was at my LFS getting some more guppies to replenish my stock and I ran into a gentleman giving away two YoYo Loaches and a Black Moor. I took them because he was going to simply pour them into the grass, he said, if noone wanted them soon ( he was basically getting out of the hobby I suppose and wanted to try to do the right thing ) so I rescued these fish.
I have them in QT for now and have researched the Loaches. It seems they do not do so well with guppies? Has anyone ever had success with this combination?
I have several other tanks that I could put into commision: two 37 gallons and two more 10 gallons ( one of the 10's is being used for QT and will eventually be the home to the Moor in a week or two ) but I do not have the proper equipment at the moment. Should I work on getting one of my 37's up and running and simply upgrade? Will the two species live in harmony in that size tank or are they fine in the established 10 I have been running for a year now?
I'd love to NOT have more than two tanks running right now. I know I'll be using a 10 for the Black Moor since it's a cold water guy and I'll be getting the equipment tomorrow for that. If I have any questions about the Moor, I'll create a new thread
