    I know, The loaches are my mother's. I am planning a large tank and have a second small tank doing a fishless cycle right now. I could've killed the lady at Aquarium Adventure. I brought my mother in to look at their aquariums. She saw the clown loaches and wanted them. I told her that they needed to be in groups of at least 5 and would get big. The aquarium lady said "Nooooo, you just two or so." So we ended up coming home with 2 clown loaches.

    The catfish will get fairly large, as well. I am planning for the future.

    Mom's are fun, LOL! I'm glad you have a future plan for the loaches, most people don't.

    So the Largest Syno (now named FatCat) was tricked into coming out and getting her picture taken. She tried to get me back by coming out, picking up a pellet and carrying it off to her hidey hole. I still got a couple of decent ones. If you can see it, she's developed spots, but she is very dark and is growing fairly fast. Tip to tail she's about 5 inches now. The Lighter one of the three is still only about 2.5 inches long. The Smaller one is growing up to look like FatCat. I still think I have 2 different types of catfish.

    My thought is they are just young
    +1 my usdc turn almost all white when ever I do a water change so I guess they are very sensitive but they do fine with ick tablets.

    This is the same rock from the earlier photos, now in the 55gal tank.

    This is the largest featherfin, Fat Cat.

    This is the smallest Featherfin, Pickle. Behind him, in the rock, you can see Fat Cat hiding.

    This thread was a fun read, mostly because the employee at Meijer told you they were corys. I do a lot of shopping at Meijer but I've never bought fish from them. I can't help but notice that half the fish they sell need a tank bigger than the largest tank they sell.

    Glad to see you were able to find suitable homes for them. How did the clown loaches make out?
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids

    Sadly, the loaches responded badly to melafix that was used in the 55gal tank to heal the tetras of ich. It says on the bottle safe for clown loaches, so I didn't even think of researching further. Now I wish I had. They went into convulsions within seconds of the add and died within a minute. I felt horrible and was sooooo angry.

    I went through surgery and couldn't walk for 2 months. The 55 gal tank is in my basement and I had someone feeding them and doing water changes. The 20 Gal Long at my mothers did not fair so well. She didn't even call to let me know something was wrong. It has now been unaffectionately termed the tank of death. The catfish named spot I found floating upside down, the bettas body was never found. The 3 jullii Corys that survived were transferred to the 55 gal. They seem to be doing well now with the albino corys.

    My mother has lost tank privileges and I now have 2 empty tanks.

    The new tank has been up for a while now. I am in the process of increasing plant life. The syno cats seem happy. I still aim to get the smaller cat into his own tank.
