Argh...Made a post, and it disappeared:
LFS had Cobra Guppies, so I got two males, and four (assorted) females.
In the pic, both males and one of the females:
I also got two emerald Cory Cats...They have been pretty shy, but a few minutes ago, one of them zoomed out, and stopped right by where I was sitting:
Everyone is adjusting well...After an hour or so, ALL the guppies came out of hiding, and are hovering near the surface. I sprinkled a tiny bit of food, and they all ate. I just saw one of the Cory Cats eating some that had reached to bottom.
Made a mistake (shocking, really!)...NONE of my LFS had the Koriala Nano pump that was recommended to move water around in the dead corner. Petco had a $17 one, which I bought, of course. IT WAS LIKE A HURRICANE IN THERE!!
Could not shut it down fast enough. Fortunately, I tested it BEFORE adding the fish. Not a total loss, because the flexi hose I have been using for water changes fits the output nozzle...Which means I can pump water in and out for water changes, instead of balancing a five gallon bucket above the water level.
In fact, I am actually considering a small HOB for the dead corner...Just enough to move the water a little. Also, the fish seem to like the non agitated corner...Perhaps they will be enough to move the water, and keep the fuzz algae back. A combination of toothbrush, air bubbles, and less light have knocked it back almost all the way...So we will wait and see.
I intend to add more fish, still deciding on my options. I like the suggestions I got...Including Dario Dario and White Cheek Goby.
Any thoughts, or tips for best foods, etc. would be most welcome.
Also, better pics are on the way...Daughter Number One returns, tomorrow, with my Nikon DSLR.
