I found another sick clown loach in my tank today!
It is bloated just like the other two clowns I had lost with the same problem.
Strange thing is, they have came down with this problem so far apart. The last sick clown was maybe two months ago, dont know for sure, I would have to go back to where I posted that thread.
This tank has been set up for over a year, no ammonia, no nitrites, but now high nitrates with this new problem with my tap water. Somewhere between 40-80ppm. Not sure, the colors on the card looks the same to me.
I could not find him again after I noticed him, so I am going to do a water change tomorrow, removing decorations, so I can find him and put him in QT.
Not that I was able to save the other two.
Think I better get to lowes tomorrow to get the stuff I need to finish up my diy nitrate remover. There were some flaws in my first design.
The other two clowns I have are extremly healthy and outgoing, (HOPE THEY STAY THAT WAY) so I will not be buying anymore clowns to try and up their number. They are not at all shy, so I think just the two will be fine together.
Now I need to decide what to treat it for. IP, dropsy, or both?
Good grief, why was I not just happy having yoyo loaches!
