Zipper Loach

Posted By: Sylvia

Found this board a little while ago and hope that you can help me. I have a 33 gal. and have a clown loach, horseface loach and a zipper loach (I now know that most of these do better in groups, but was misinformed by my lfs when setting up my tank over 18 months ago.) I have had a zipper loach for about 15 months now and since saturday it has gone into hiding (he only seems to come out to eat and he appears to be eating well). My water perameters are fine (PH 6.8, Ammonia - Nil, Nitrite - Nil, Nitrate - well within acceptable limits). I have not had any illness in the tank for approximately 8 - 10 months. Any ideas on what is happening here as this has always been a very friendly, sociable and visible loach.
