In Response To: sick clown loach?? (Rose)

Hi Rose,

Sorry to hear about your loach, but I'm afraid you're going to get a whole barrage of questions over the next few hours or so. Do *not* panic, you've come to the best place for advice and support- how long has he been looking a bit on the thin side? Do any of the other loaches look a bit underfed? Are they all eating well? Are there any obvious signs of parasites or worms hanging from your loach at all (especially his bottom)? Just to make suggesting a treatment easier, what are the water parameters like, particularly the pH and temperature of the tank?

Anyone, should Rose now be looking to reach for the levamisole? It sounds to me
