Gorgeous loaches. Second mortgage. Does Clare know? Chris would flip his nut lol.

I live in Eastbourne - the sunniest place in Britain. That isn't really saying much...

I see they can reach 20", what monster tank have you got lined up for them Tony?

I DID have a 300 gallon tank for them until the Flu symptom's abated :snooty: .

They are only 8" at the moment so they are going to go in an 85 gallon tank for now and will eventually end up in a 9ft or 8ft x 2ft 6" , if they out grow these then we would have to look at keeping them in the koi pond throughout the summer and winter them in one of the indoor 1000 gallon koi vat's , but I would prefer to keep them in house so I can see them all the time :tu:

Brilliant! - ask the important questions when the 'boss' is drugged up and would probably agree to having her right leg cut off if it would help! :wink:

That's the thing with ladies - they haven't experienced true pain until they've had 'man flu' :wink: :wink:

They are certainly stunning - no doubt some great photos and videos to follow?

Not only that but after my wife had our first she wanted to go through it all again :wink: I can't imagine something like having my privates squeezed in a vice and saying "great - do it again" :think:

In truth - I'm sure there wouldn't be a population problem if men were the one's givng birth - once would definately be enough :whistle:
