    Thanks. I'm not in a hurry so its okay, lol. I tested his water when he first moved his tank to my room. The old water had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and the nitrates were over 180. My test kit couldn't read them, so its definitely cycled. I do his water changes now because he obviously doesn't. He only has the two loaches and the pleco. I'm not sure how long he has had the pleco but he's had the loaches for 5 years and they hang around each other all the time. I'm unfamiliar with loaches so I'm not 100% sure what kind they are but they are the long sepentine ones. One is striped and one is just brown and the brown one is slightly longer. I don't see them often since they hide almost all the time. I do know that the non striped one is not ten inches. His tank is 20 inches long and I don't think the biggest loach is longer than 1/4 the length of the tank. The pleco is smaller than both of them in length and I also don't know what type it is but I do have some pictures of it.

    Hi :) I have a quick question... My brother has two loaches in his ten gallon tank (I believe one is a Kuhli loach and one is a dojo, there's a long striped one and one that is not striped and slightly larger). I am currently trying to get him to replace his gravel with sand (but the issue is, we'd have to catch the loaches, first). These loaches are also about 5 years old (or at least that is how long he's had them). One other thing - he also has a small plecostamus in there. I don't know what type, but he's also had it for five years and it's not very big.

    I was wondering if he would be able to add three more loaches, given their age, type and the bio-load in the ten gallon. It is filtered and cycled with plastic plants and one car cave. (Oh, also, the temp is only 72 degrees. He has a heater but I'm pretty sure it no longer works, as it is probably as old as the fish.)

    Thank you :)

    Sorry to hear about your bettas - I've seen some deaths recently too and have only one remaining girl from my sorority, and she and Odysseus are both dying. :( What fancies do you have? :) Law is, you know, law. Final year now, though. :p My back is slightly improved - it's just one of those things that will never be 100%.

    How is life treating you?
