Hi, I've never posted before, but I have been lurking for months :)I have a mature 38gal tank...it's been established for years.The ammonia is at 0,Nitrites are also 0,Nitrates are unreadable on my test.Temp is a steady 78. Recently I added 6 Kuhli loaches to the community, which I ended up getting at different stores. Three looked to be full groun at 3 inches and nice and plump,the other 3 were smaller at 2 inches and a little on the thin side. Anyway the last 2 mornings I wake up and one of the larger ones is dead(one each night)and the last larger one is currently swimming upside-down and running into the side of the tank???The other 3 are fine.Right now the only other fish in the tank are:6 2in. Tiger Barbs,3 Albino Cory,3 2 in. Clowns,and 1 Hillstream Loach. Do you think it could be a bad batch from the lfs? T
