Re: Hillstream Loach Babies? #1
The fish you have is Gastromyzon scitulus sometimes known as the Spiney-headed hillstream loach. This species has not to my knowledge ever been bred in aquarium. Having not kept this species myself i cannot comment on it's behaviour but i very much doubt your hillstreams are spawning. :(

Re: HELP! Weather Loach in filter! #2
Hi,

I had my 8-9" weather loach do this in the internal on my rio 400. I still have no idea how she did and she is chunky!! haha

As long as she/he can't get into the powerhead she/he shouldn't have problem - just make sure it's impossible to get to the impeller in the power head from inside the box and drop a bit of food in there for her/him!

Re: Bought some plants now ive got a load of snails! #5
The problem with adding dwarf chain loaches is that as the angels grow the dwarfs could become prey and vulnerable to attack. If you wanted a snail eater you should go for a slightly larger bottine loach. What are the tank dimensions?

Snails often appear due to over feeding as there will be enough uneaten food around to have a spark in population.
Try cutting down on food first and see what happens.

As Cathie suggested, cucumber overnite should cut back the population and can be very affective(although the plec might get there first.lOL).

David

PS, stay away from snail killers, they do kill the snails but all of the dead snails will more than likely cause a ammonia spike - bad for fish!!

Re: Geophagus pics #6
Well the java fern is rooted to wood so not much of a prob there, same for java moss. The vallis has large pebbles on the base but henry does try and eat the leaves.
Hornwort is floating and cope which the plant eating skills Henry has developed. I did have some mono but Henry ate that, i still have a bit in another tank though.
I'm going to add a few species of anubias and a few other plants.

Geophagus pics #7
Hey,

Not been around for a few months and i have expanded my collection of tanks and just about to set-up another 2.
But when i set up the newest - 5ft i added a geophagus brasiliensis to the tank, selectively bred for colour and he has so much personality.
This is Henry...

And this does show the colour but is terribly blurred.:(

He's quite young still has a bit of growing to do. :)
Will have to do a profile on these, recommended! lol

Re: upgrade! #8
NON, dwarf puffers are not community and even if you were you would be fully stocked.
What are the tank dimensions?

Re: Coldwater fish varieties? #9
4 or 5foot would be perfect for weather loaches.
