I love those loaches! What is their scientific name? Did you get them from your LFS or a chainstore?

Pooh, I was hoping you got them at Petsmart so that there was a chance the one near me had them. Laughing Oh well, I'll just have to ask my LFS to order me some.

They are a favorite of mine, really active, not agressive. Sometimes they are a little towards larger fish, they eat anything and when they have a flake they spit it out into a million little pieces!

I recommend them, but get a good group of them never just one or it will hide a lot and sit in the back of the tank away from view.

I went out and picked up 2 SAE's to help with the algae (I know they get large and my LFS is fine trading them back). The plants are doing well and I'm quite anxious to see if the glosso carpets. I have to wait weeks for that though Sad .

Heres some pictures:

Very nice! Those plants are growing so well too! It looks a lot more balanced with the lettuce on the other side as well now.
