Hi all ,
as the subject line says ; Are ich and parasites the only diseases that loaches (specifically clowns) can get ?
The reason I ask is I had another guy die yesterday, but I don't know why .
First there was the poached loach episode around new years when the thermostat locked itself on while I was on holiday. I did an 80% water change before restocking to any extent, and have been doing a 60% change every four days since (as part of an ich treatment with malachite green). My 55 is even now around half its maximum stocking level. There's no ammonia , ph is 7 , dunno about nitrites , temp 82-86 .
