New tank arrangement... *PIC*

The slate is a little taller then it was, and the caves are more private. Good news is, I was able to create DOZENS more caves this way and all the loaches are exploring them. Of course, this means I havent seen them for a while, but when they do come out, they look very happy.

I got a good look at poor Mondo (the biggest clown). He had little holes all over his sides and back where the sun loach had bit pieces off of him. I felt terrible so I gave the tank a diluted dose of Pond Strength Melafix. I'm glad I did though! 2 hours after that and Mondo barely has a visible mark on him. The bites are still there, but they arent white any more.
