I have one of those power heads my loaches love it. It must have been because it is a flatter fish. So sorry bout what happened dude
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Yes, this was such a valuable thread. We all learned something.

I'm so sorry, though, for your loss, Arny.
