very nice setup you got there!!!i have 6 tiger barbs and 2 albinos in my 50 gallon...how are the loaches doing???size?im sure that you are aware that they get very big...(12 in.)
what filter(s) do you have on the 40???
On the 40, i have a eheim classic canister for a 60 gal and a penguin sponge filter in the back.
The loaches are good, obviously i would like to have them in a bigger tank right now. I dont believe they have become stunted yet, iv'e heard there is or can be health ramifications to having them in the smaller tank. Though in my experince, we had a similar 40 gallon with a loach pair that lived to be almost 40 when i was a child, growing no longer than 5 inches. Of course that is not ideal and i plan on moving them in the near future . But for now they are happy and healthy.
