Not a loach problem, but....

Posted By: Taratron

Tank stats: 29 gallon tank, heavily planted
Two AC200s as filters

Tank stock: panda cories, elegant cories, a trio of kuhli loaches, 6 brochis cats, 1 male betta, 5 A. lineatus "golden" killifish, some peacock gobies, and 1 clown pl*co. One male BN added two weeks ago.

Water changes are 50% twice a week. Fertilizers once a week, Flourish and Flourish Excel. Three pieces of driftwood.

Here's the problem. I -never- see my brochis spendlens cats. Or when I catch a fleeting glimpse of them, they ricochet hari-kari to the back part of the tank. This is my second time keeping brochis, and I'm close to giving up--they always act like this, no matter what cats I have, what stock they're from, or what tank they are in. I cannot see these guys at all without risking injury
