  2. Loaches in a 10g Tank

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    Are there any loaches that would do fine in a 10g tank? Right now I have a male betta and 6 harlequin rasboras and would like to find someone to fill out the bottom. And to intercept, I already have 6 kuhli loaches in a 20g tank and I'm looking for something different.
  3. what kind of leaves can i put in my tank?

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I've read all over that loaches like leaves on the bottom of the tank to hide and root around in. Now, I hope I'm not being ignorant here but, are we talking about regular leaves from outside... like the ones covering my lawn right now, or are there "special" leaves for fish tanks. I'm looking...

    Okay, so I'm working to get feelers out right now. Boyfriend and I both are looking to get no more than 3-4 banded/striped kuhli loaches.

  7. Baby Black Kuhli Loaches!

    Fish Breeding
    Oh I am so excited about it I decided to make a post! I got some Black Kuhli loaches about two months or so ago, hoping but not expecting them to breed. Well they did.

  8. Stocking my new 97litre!

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I recently acquired a 97 litre tank, in which I am planning to stock once set up and needed some opinions on certain fish I was thinking of introducing, as different sites say different things. It will be fairly well planted and is a long, rather than tall tank. These are some of my ideas - -4...
