Yunnanilus sp. ‘rosy’ are here (well, almost!)

I picked up the 10 Yunnanilus sp. ‘rosy’ today from a drop-shipper, so since I was not able to observe them and they are almost certainly wild, they are not in the quarantine aquarium for the next 4-6 weeks. The water the loaches came out of was:

  • KH: 9.5 ° (170 ppm)
  • GH: 19 ° (340 ppm)
  • ammonia: 0.25 ppm
  • nitrite: 0 ppm
  • nitrate: 40 ppm
  • pH: 8.2

And, after acclimatisation, they have gone into:

  • KH: 7 ° (125 ppm)
  • GH: 19 ° (340 ppm)
  • ammonia: 0 ppm
  • nitrite: 0 ppm
  • nitrate: 20 ppm
  • pH: 7.8

I put down the ammonia in the water they came with down to the water being of dechlorinated chloraminated water… I think I just made up a word :-S
