    My Khuli Loach Has Lost Its Stripes

    Yep, without a doubt. I keep a log for my tanks and make updates whenever I add or remove dead fish. Back in 1/23/09 I added two Khulis to the tank that already had two. Nothing else changed. I've got a mutant. :alien:

    My Khuli Loach Has Lost Its Stripes

    Thanks for the reply MikeV. The first picture is from about a year ago and the second is one I just took.

    Have You Ever Seen Hikari Tropical Flake In Your Lfs

    Nope. Unfortunately I've never seen it in a LFS. A few years ago Hikari had a promo where if you sent them a competitors empty flake container, they would send you theirs in exchange. Not too shabby of a deal. If I could find it now I probably would start buying it instead of TetraMin.

    My Khuli Loach Has Lost Its Stripes

    Has anyone ever heard of a khuli loach losing its stripes? For some reason ~6 months ago, one out of the four turned to a solid colored body. It eats and socializes like the other loaches. My water stats are consistently: Ammonia - 0 Nitrite - 0 Nitrate - 5-10 Any ideas? edit: added topic...

    Black Specks/spots On Severum

    I was about to start a new thread but it seems as if you and I are dealing with the same thing. I recently added 6 rummy noses and within a few days they developed ich. :sly: Then when I was taking a closer look at them, I noticed one of the rummy noses had one black spot on the side of its body...

    What's The Hardest Lesson You Learned?

    OK all you youngins' - don't do this one: Many years ago when I was new to doing water changes, I decided I would be smart by saving some time by filling my tank with an outdoor faucet/garden water. Needless to say, the water was too cold and within a day all my fish had Ich. Since I didn't...

    Rummy Nose

    I paid $15 (£10) for 6. What are they going for where you all live?

    Rummy Nose

    For quite some time now I've had my eyes on rummy noses to add to my tank that has cooper razboras in it. Yesterday I purchased 6 that looked pretty good at the LFS. Now that they have been it the tank for a day, their noses have really brightened more than I expected. :D I now wish I wouldn't...

    Tiny Black Flecks In New Seachem Prime?

    Thanks for the legwork VaegaVic. "Prime® has a very distinct odor that is similar to sulfur which is completely normal. Also, the presence of small black specks is normal."

    Tiny Black Flecks In New Seachem Prime?

    I just unsealed a new 250 mL bottle of Prime (water conditioner) and there are many tiny black flecks floating in it. I've been using this product for many years and have never seen this before. Have any of you seen or heard of this weirdness? edit: spelling

    What's The Hardest Lesson You Learned?

    I once chose not to unplug my heater before doing a water change because I thought I wouldn't be removing that much water. Yep, you guessed it - CRACKLE POP! :crazy: I never moved so fast in my life to get my hands out of the water. (I really should have known better.) :blush: I will now...

    I use a couple of these Coralife units as well. They cost ~$6 and their readings match two other of my glass thermometers - that's good enough for me.

    New Corys

    They look like either like a Delphax Cory / False Blochi Catfish (Corydoras delphax) or a Sterba's Cory (Corydoras sterbai).
