    Wow. You must have had a bad batch. Mine are comparable to the Colombians in temperament. And you couldn't ask for a better temperament than colombians - and that's not just coming from me. everyone I know who has had them loves them.
    I'm like you and the congos with dwarf neon rainbows. I'll never try them again.
    Let us know what you decide!

    Just been having a look at these beauties! I know they pop up occasionally where I live. Would be worth the wait if I could get my hands on some.

    Tiiiime for an update! My 240l tank has come on a long journey to where it is now -- a South East Asian Semi-Biotope! Loaches are one of my favourite fish so it only makes sense to centre a tank around them. Stock has changed many times since I first set it up as I was so indecisive about what direction I wanted to go but I finally feel confident about what I want.

    My school of neons have been sold and a few other fish have been added. Stock is now 16 Harlequin Rasbora, 1 old Platinum Gourami, 7 Yoyo Loaches (migrated over from my 120g where they were hassling the cichlids), 4 Zebra Loaches (1 of which was given to me by a friend shutting down his tank, the other 3 bought as company), 2 Polka Dot Loaches (also free from a friend) and 14 Kuhli Loaches. Plan on increasing the zebra and polka-dot loach numbers to 6 each when redwood gets some in and adding a nice big school of a yet undecided Asian schooling fish... Possibly White Cloud Mountain Minnows, although Giant Danios have also crossed my mind. I have also considered Irian Red Rainbows, as I ADORE them and they are finally available in my area, but wonder if this would be too much "red" with my harlequins and if I would be better off going for Boesemannis or some other type instead. Very much open to suggestions of a nice Asian schooling fish that will compliment my Harlequins. I will also probably increase my harley school to 20 or so.

    Ideally I would like to have all South-East Asian plants, but the plants available here are so limited I would end up with just one or two species -- hence why this will likely remain a semi-biotope tank. As for the aquascaping, I need to blur the borders between the different species of plant now that they've grown in to make it look more natural. I'm still looking for a nice chunky bit of driftwood for the left side to compliment the right side.

    Without further adieu, photos!

    Lastest FTS. It's changed a lot since it was first set up!



    My poor one-eyed Yoyo Loach. Got this guy free along with a lone striata loach and 2 polka-dot loaches for free from a friend, and when I introduced him to my tank with my existing school of 6 yoyos I was mortified to see that they had pecked one of his eyes out overnight! He now seems to have been initiated into the school, but the cost was obviously very high.


    This poor little Kuhli Loach seems to be missing half his face! I wonder if perhaps the Yoyos have developed a taste for eyes. Doesn't seem to bother him too much.

    Some shots of my kuhlis when they were kind enough to let me photograph them one day!

    FTS Update!

    Stocklist is now as follows:
    - 10 Kuhli Loaches
    - 7 Yoyo Loaches (will be selling these soon)
    - 6 Angelicus Loaches
    - 6 Striata Loaches
    - 20 Harlequin Rasbora
    - 3 Irian Red Rainbows (all they had in stock, plan to add 3 more)
    - 1 Platinum Gourami

    I FINALLY found a bit of driftwood I like for the left side. The rock on it is temporary, it doesn't feel like sinking on it's own yet.

    Very nice as always.
