In Response To: Disease - PLEASE HELP!! (Linda Bergkvist)

Linda, you are experiencing the same thing I did when I first got into clown loaches years ago. I was at my wit's end! I watched sadly as my loaches died, and always tried again, only to go through the same experience over and over. Then someone told me they were starving to death and I really felt horrible! I now feed my loaches TetraTabiMin Tablet Food for All Bottom Dwellers. I have not lost a loach since. They cannot thrive on flake food because their tank mates usually devour it before they can get to it, and what little bit falls to be bottom is just not enough.
