Opps! I meant Kuhlie loaches, not chili loaches or khuli loaches.

Subject: Driftwood and chili loaches
Can anyone tell me if they have had khuli loaches or other fish die off
after adding driftwood? About 3 years ago, I added a piece of driftwood
to a 20 gal. planted tank. I had 3 or 4 khuli loaches, and some tetras
in the tank. I had the loaches for about 2 years when I added the wood.
It had some cavities that the loaches could swim through, so I thought
they would "love" it. But within a couple of weeks, they were all dead.
The tetras, however, were fine. Did the driftwood kill the loaches? It
was the kind that is attached to a piece of marble, and I bought it in a
local pet store. I soaked it for months in a bucket of (well) water
before adding it to the tank. I am thinking of adding khuli loaches
again, and would like to know if I should remove the driftwood first. I
believe it has decayed some. (There are no plants growing on the wood,
and I will be replanting the tank as well.) Thanks for any replies.
