I have a 55 gallon that I started up a month ago. Right now, I have 4 weather loaches and 3 peppered loaches in there. I have seen something floating in the tank about 3 times which looks like skin--like one/some of the loaches are shedding their skin like snakes.(whitish tissue that's between 1 1/2 to 3 inches) Unless it's just something else that looks like skin. So-do loaches shed???
INFO THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL:
I used 6 white cloud mountain minnows to cycle the tank for the first week. They have since been removed. When I started the tank, I used 5 gallons of used water from my other 55 gallon community tank. I also used the back pack filter from it. I had a brown algae infestation. I think some hitched a ride with a couple of plastic plants I put in there which were also borrowed from the other tan
