I'm confused. Where was the ammonia coming from? If you were doing a fishless cycle than why were you doing water changes?
He's probably seen a full grown one.....thanks but i dont care what the loach 'needs' and a 55g is plenty big enough for it... What makes you think a 48 inch long and 21 ich tall isnt big enough ??

We've all said things that we wish people wouldn't remember, but if you left fish in a parking lot and told people about it, then people are going to remember that. That's just the way it is. Kid or not. Ich is SOOOOO easy to cure. If the store had a fish that I wanted and it had ich, I would still buy it. However, in order for it to be easy to cure, you have to learn to cure it..... which you can't do by tossing the fish. Too, if the tank you put these fish in wasn't cycled, then you ought to take responsibility rather than place blame on the store.He was but he was also being a real smarty pants talking about me putting them in the parking lot based on my other post when I had fish infested with ich from my LFS they wouldn't give me my money back or return them and I wasn't about to put them back in my tank so I tossed them.. Honestly if you wanna be a smarty pants your going to get a smarty pants response back, Im not some little kid you can just do that too..
Also I didn't not care about putting fish in the tank it was my mom who went to the store and tossed them in there.. she also fished the gauramis and the 4 gold barbs from her 30g and tossed them in there too when I was at work at the fire station... I managed to fish all them out and put them back into her tank but the clown loach and the ram I couldn't catch as they were way too fast. And I have a huge 3 foot long piece of driftwood in the tank that has lots of hiding places and in order to get them I would have had to tear the whole tank up so I left them in there and just add'd 2x the dose of prime and did 50-70% water changes for 2 weeks almost every day.. That's why I also have 2 angle fish in my 27g hexagon.. she bought them and tossed them in the 55g I had to fish them out... SHE WONT listen... its so frustrating
Also I have had loaches in my 27g hex and my 30g long tank for years I have never seen them get 6-10 inch long.. The biggest I have ever seen them get was maybe 3-4 inches.. Me personally I told her not to get that fish because I was going to add nerite snails in the tank.... But like when she tossed all them in the tank she never listens to me and when I try to explain to her about cycling a tank it literally goes in one ear and out the other
