    lol, forgot about the pleco in there (and Danios). It's a tough situation you're in. I hope you figure out the water heater issue and get that nailed down.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    I am not to sure, but I think I see hard water scale on the faucets. I battle this constantly. My water is so hard, we nearly need to use a chisel to get off a chunk to drink it.

    Do you flush your hot water heater every 6 months to get rid of the mineral build up at the bottom? How old is this water heater?

    Common and Sailfin plecos, as well as giant danios can withstand a temperature swing of around 5 degrees.

    I don't flush it every 6 months but when I have done it in the past it was unproductive - no noticeable sediment and no improvement afterward. The water heater is 17 years old so it's nearing the end of its lifespan. I believe the problem is a cracked dip tube - the tube that makes sure the new cold water entering the heater does not mix with the hot water at the top - and I'm going to attempt to repair that on Saturday.

    The water heater repair was a great success... roughly tripled the hot water capacity by replacing a single part. I did a water change with the basement faucet on the loach tank, and the water temperature was stable over the entire fill, with no fish loss. I would say the problem has been identified and solved. Unfortunate that it cost me 5 loaches though.

    Seems to have been resolved. I haven't had any further issues and I'm working on restocking the loach school.

    Glad to hear you got everything worked out.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
