This is probably not news to many of you more experienced loach-keepers, but today I stuck a Hikari Tubilina cube for the first time to the front glass of my 55-gal. tank and it was a major hit, not just for the fish but for me. The clown loaches, cory cats, variatus platys and single angelfish were all over it in no time, gobbling it up. It was one of the rare times I've been able to have an extended, good look at all four loaches at once, giving them a real visual examination. I'm happy to report that all looked wonderful -- no white spots, bright sharp colors and no worms, etc., hanging out anywhere. All look very plump/stocky and were making real little pigs of themselves. Of course, I also treated the fish in my other tanks to some of this new (to us, anyway) meal. Just thought I'd pass this
