Well the loaches are fine so far after the gravel change from "kiddy" to fine substrate but I did lose a Gold Skirt Tetra 12 hours after the change---Im so mad at myself because the gold skirts made it through a bad bout of ick that I had a while ago when I had loaches sick
All the gravel was rinsed thouroughly--I saved 75% of my old water---let the plants and rocks sit in the old water--used aqua safe for the new water I had to put in--temp was maintained at 78-79 degrees---ph is 7.2 before the change---about 7 after---ammonia level right around zero
Help before my Loaches get sick---please---3 clowns and 3 striatas
