I have a 55 gallon loach only tank that I call my "loach motel". I have had it running for 5 weeks now. The first week, I used white cloud mountain minnows to help cycle, then I added loaches slowly. (minnows returned to previous tank) After minnows--first I put 2 of my weather loaches in, then the other 2 after about 5 days. After that I put in 3 peppered loaches. The next week, due to a terrible brown algae infestation, I added a bristle nose pleco (which I DO have to say, has done a wonderful job of cleaning up--so he's been hired as the janitor of the motel!) The next week, I added 6 kuhli loaches which were maybe an inch & 1/2 long. I had them for 3 days and then I found a dead one. Today, I found another kuhli corpse. I think there may be one more-but I'm giving it until tomorrow to move.
