i finaly got my new tank up and running. I got a hold of two khuli loaches, one stripped, one black. The stripped one was a bit lazy, and didnt seem to be to active. He died a few days later.

I just got back today, to find the black loach has developed a white mark about 1/2 inch behind his dorsal fin (he is about 2.5 3 inches long atm).
