ask to borrow a pair of the loaches for a week to keep the snails down and then give them back. you both win that way. you lose snails, your mate gets two fat fish back!

Funny that so did I.

Mine don't seem to be doing a great job of keeping the tank clear of snails either and I have put it down to one of two things. Either they are being fed to much other food or it wasn't the stiata's that were keeping the snails at bay but the two Darios that I recently removed from the tank and rehoused in one of my other tanks which funnily enough is now clear of snails. :rolleyes:

They are doing well in the tank growing well very playful and not aggressive
