Re: Sick Clown loach


Clown Loaches are a great fish :)  They do however tend to come in with parasites and other nasties from SE asia.

Hopefully you quarantined him prior to dumping him in, BUT, if you were lazy (like me) and just acclimated him and let him in you will now have the job of treating the tank.  The good news is that it won't hurt your plants OR mess up your other fish!  If you go to the
"Loaches Online" web site (use any SE) you can read how to use a drug called levamasole (sp) to clear him up.  It's not easy to find, but it works well.  Check the site for full details.

Good Luck!
