new fish added

Post by Sandman1969 on Tue Jan 07, 2014 9:35 am

Ok, I know my 130 gallon is a bit "full" with 2 large common plecos, a big ID shark, 2 baby IDs, 8 Oto cats.

But with the current snail issue I have, I decided to add a Clown Loach to help with that.



No name for it though at this time.
It seems happy with the huge new home compared to the maybe 10G he was in.

He has lots of snails to snack on as well.

don't clown loaches like to be kept in groups with their own species?

We will add a buddy for him within another week or 2. We don't plan to leave him alone.
But he does seem happy so far in his new large home.

I think clown loaches are the sweetest things. if I ever had a very large tank I would definitely stock them.

I love how you justify more fish,

"I need to add a Clown Loach to take care of the snails"

"Oh wait he needs a friend"

Smile

I need to use some of these excuses.

Cute fish just the same.

Well, if I didn't have the snail issue, I would not have gotten him.
As for the baby ID sharks, the big guy needed a same species friend to swim with.
