  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hey all, Greetings from sunny Arizona where we are enjoying our winter. We started in freshwater aquariums benignly enough with a pair of 1 gallon Betta tanks - 1 for each of our daughters. Bettas didn't thrive and we moved up to a slightly larger tank. We then upgraded to a 3-gallon aquaponics...
  2. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hello eveyone, In my most recent film I have decided to turn the camera lense on one of the most interesting and unique freshwater fish in the hobby. The KUHLI LOACH ! These fish have some strange features and habits that make them a very entertaining addition to a community tank. They are easy...

    Hi all, I am moving my 155L tank to a new 155L tank (new glass) and cannot choose a suitable substrate that would be good for my plants AND good for my horseface loach. He needs a fine gravel for burrowing etc so does anyone have any recommendations? I don't want anything superfine, but...

    Hi guys! Pardon the long post, I want to provide thorough information. I have a 20L tank, with live plants (mondo, anubias, some other pet store standards), two pieces of driftwood about a forearm long each, black sand substrate (sterile, no beneficial additives). I have an adjustable heater...

    What is better to tackle the infestation of ramshorn snails - Assassin Snails or Loaches? Yoyo, clown, kuhli?
  6. Cyprinids and Atherinids
    Story: I made a newbie mistake the other day (that I should know better than after 2 years!) that I need help with. I went to the pet store to purchase 2 more black kuhli loaches for my 25 gallon tank. They only had one black left, but the girl said they had an albino kuhli loach left. We were...

    So, i want to get some sort of fish that is a bottom dweller for my 29 gallon. the question is, should i get cories or zebra/kuhli loaches? I really like both, but would the loaches hurt my 2 african dwarf frogs? Any feedback is welcome, thanks!:-D
  8. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone! I just joined this forum. I set up a new 20 gallon tank {Grreat Choice starter kit from Petsmart} last weekend. My tank now has 2 neon tetras, 4 glowlight tetras, 2 black skirt tetras, 3 ghost shrimp and 2 black kuhlia loaches. I planted a couple of Amazon Sword plants and...
  9. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hey everyone. I'm working through my stocking list and making plans for a new tank. I currently have a 55G with my juvenile severums in it (Super Reds, under 1"). Keep in mind I am upgrading tanks to a 125g in the beginning of 2014, and all of the fish on the list will be purchased as juveniles...
  10. DIY Aquarium
    I'm worried that this might cause a health problem for them. They're Kuhli Loaches and look to be biting and pulling on the silicone part of it. The cave is made of pvc pipe, glass stones, and GE Silicone I Waterproof for Window/Door/Attic/Basement. I spent HOURS on this cave, so I would rather...
  11. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    As the title says, I need help choosing a substrate. The reason I just didn't go off someone else's post is because I have specific factors that need to be considered because of my water and the fish I will be getting. I would really apreciate the names of good brands along with your posts to...
  12. Catfish
    I love bottom feeders, I think they tend to have more personality. I was wondering about a possible setup. What if you did a sort of upside down planted look: only floating plants, and sand on the bottom. Probably a piece of driftwood to, but other than that just open, sandy bottom. The reason...
  13. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I've had 3 zodiac loaches for about a month now. All seems to be well with them- they have a big den and keep to themselves. I haven't really seen any signs of aggression. One of the loaches has gotten quite plump, but the other 2 are slender. They were all the same size when I purchased them...

  16. Anabantids
    Hi, I am slowly stocking my 29 gallon freshwater tank. I had 5 serpae tetras, but after some advice from this forum, I re-homed them so that I could have a dwarf powder blue gourami. My tank currently has one male gourami, and 2 platties. My tank has 2 rock formations, (one tall and one...
