looking back

I don't get many good pictures of kuhli loaches- they are so small and quick.
But here are a few of Snaky Fish.
Closeup with his buddy Albert (Snaky Fish on the left).
Climbing on crypt wendtii, in my old tank.

I'd had him just about two years- not nearly long enough. Sadly, in hindsight I realize he'd probably been carrying parasites for a whole year- I first noticed him getting thin last july. I did treat the entire tank with PraziPro for parasites two months after the striped kuhlis' arrival in 2014 but it was probably not sufficient, I should have followed up with these other meds using now. Feeling bad about that. If I get new fish again will probably treat them proactively against parasites in quarantine.
