i really dig a good loach.i have a breeding pair of striata laoches that i hope one day someone will give me the secrets to spawning as well as a snail eradicating yo yo loach.[img][/img]
i also adore cory cats as well.there are so many i just get suckered into them all.

i wish they were more picture friendly.maybe somebody knows of a good light to use in the dark that doesnt disturb the fishes so much.i might try some blue but it will look a bit strange.maybe a dimmer?

charrio got some cory cats and they cleaned the bottom of his tanks in 24hrs and now keep swimming against the glass, i guess they ate all the debris? or just unhappy with conditions perhaps?
