my 40 gallon loach tank *PIC*

Good afternoon everyone,

Someone recently asked for pics of our loach tanks and all I had at the time was a pic of my 20 gallon. I've rectified that and managed to get a blurry pic of my 48x18x12 ~40 US gallon tank.

This tank houses 9 of my sids, my rostratas and 5 Danio devario. It used to have a Botia almorhae too (he was pictured here some time last year) but he got an intestinal blockage after eating beefheart and died not long ago.

The subtsrate is a very thin layer of sand with some larger pebbles scattered on top at the front. There are 8 pieces of bogwood providing a plethora of hiding places... in fact the fish can get from one end of the tank to other without being seen. The plants are all plastic and are there just to add a bit of colour. Oh, there's one small clump of java moss as well.

Dave
