All botiine loaches do make clicking sounds. I hope you didn't combine your skunk loaches with your other more docile fish. These are NOT community fish. They are absolutely one of the worst loaches for a community setup with temperament scaling 5 of 5 matching the tiger loaches and Yasuhikotakia modesta. If you already did, get rid of them before you start losing your other fish to them. The only fish I was able to keep them successfully with were the tiger loaches, modestas, arulius barbs and tiger barbs. Anything else gets harassed to death. A few of my yoyos were decapitated by these punks and clowns were harassed to the point they started shying away as a result before I had to remove the skunks.

I just went and read the profile for this loach we have on our site. I love loaches but this is one I would never keep, they just sound too nasty. Which, Lupin's experience can attest.

Glad to hear they're in their separate tank.

I sure hope they are correctly labelled at the store and purchasers are advised and cautioned not to mix these into their tanks as a community fish. That would not be right!

i run the fish room and take pride in my work and i advise people the best i can :):):)

I just viewed your pics and it looks like you have your tank haning off one side. your tank will break if its not fully on the stand.
|Jakiebabie ||02-17-2011 07:03 PM |
Oh that's good fryup, thank you for telling me that. It's just some places don't ask what you have already, or the size of your tank even.
|fryup ||02-18-2011 02:16 AM |
