my piranha are still small all under 2 inch

my lfs sells blach kohli loaches for 1.99
cheap maybe the cost of two feeders tehre.

i was thinking if i built them up some nice hiding places to put a few in the tnak and hope tey make it

these guys are mean and eat a lot and arnt shy to do so in front of me

i put in about 5 1 inch feeders every other day. within 30 minutes 3 of them are gone.
they eat the next two over the next day or so
then i do it again

lucky i get feeders for like 10 cents huh? lol
does anyone here think the loaches may stand a chance? i have a few in with some guppys they move pretty quick..

im hoping tey will keep the bottom a bit cleaner


any thoughts? thanks

i had a loach in with my p's for a while but did not see it much and found it one day stiff as a board on the gravel i think it died of shock and fear as when it did venture out it was chased constantly.

the loaches won't last long

I'd suggest if you're looking for something that might last a raphael...I'm surprised mine is still kicking around.

I had 4 Bronze Catfish last 3 months with my piranhas when they were 3 inches. The only reason the Catfish died was because I hadn't fed my piranhas for a while and I guess they got hungry for catfish meat.

i had a spotted loach in my p tank, on day 2 it was like lady and the tramp. they slurped his ass up.

For clean up im using clawed craps, they work great.

i have a loach in my tank, no problems. but i do have lots of plants, driftwood and rocks. the reds dont pay any attention to the loach anyways.

i thought that they got bigger. maybe i was just thinking that they got huge because i have only saw them like 2-3 inches.
