I inherited a beautiful 29g tank a month ago. It has 6 established adult fish that have been in the tank for 4+ years. 1 Clown Loach, 2 Bala Sharks, 1 Red-Finned Shark, 1 pleco, 1 white Molly. The only changes I made were to add more rocks and plastic plants. The loach was fine for a couple weeks, then I tried to introduce a small Pictus Cat. I never saw them contact each other. The Cat died within a week, all of which he spent hiding up top behind the filter tube. Since he died 7 days ago, the loach has not come out from behind his new rock. I've seen him out only twice, and he boogied home the minute he saw me coming. Today I made him come out (moved his rock) and he looks fine, he swam around, but it appears his front "feelers" (haven't learned the name yet) are GONE. Th
