You'll remember I posted a puzzler about putting two S. villeguerrae in one small tank, about how one quickly becomes dominant and attacks everyone else.
Well, at the risk of seeming like a complete nut - and hoping that they wouldn't remember me - I returned the problem loach to my lfs... I had done this once before with the same damn species of loach. Convinced that it was my mishandling of them, and not their tyranical nature, I wrongly felt that I could integrate two S.vill's into one tank. Don't bother trying! Unless you've got a big tank, a river tank, a bunch of them or some other distraction. Dither fish like white cloud
