I will definitely be doing business with y’all in the future.
Okay, maybe somewhat inspired by Animal Crossing regarding loaches. In all seriousness, I was looking for a bottom feeder to help keep the pond a bit cleaner and have something else besides normal fish. I read about the hardiness of these fellas and they certainly can survive the southwest. I would certainly keep the pond in a natural state to ensure a supply of algae as a supplementary meal. The loaches all arrived healthy and are doing well in the pond. Sometimes I keep finding one of them liking the supply of organic debris in the skimmer basket. Not much of an issue, just at least once a week check-ups to put the fella back in the pond, honestly seems more annoyed I am taking them out of their food haven in the skimmer basket. I definitely plan to get a few more to give them a good community. I was also a little hesitant to buy these guys since I have read about them being escape artists. This has not been an issue at all in my pond and they probably try to escape aquariums because they are too small. They are really nocturnal so get a pond lighting system to see them eating around at night and you will see them every night. Sometimes I see them in the day but usually before storms.
Dojo Loach added to outdoor pond to have more life in it beyond a few goldfish and a frog. Cannot see it but I did find it once today after i fed a few algae wafers so its alive and probably very happy. Came out of box very energetic and moving around no issues.
Fish arrived healthy and promptly. Very satisfied. I really appreciate how quickly you guys fulfilled my order. I’ve tried others and that was not the case. Thank you very much.
