I'm actually surprised how well they school in general. They are slowly becoming my favorite kind of cory for sure.

I also started organizing all the fish crap.



I added a shelf to the empty top half of the second 40b rack. This gives me a place to store all the non-refrigerated foods as well as a place to put some picos/bowls. I re-used one of my old led strips to provide a little under shelf lighting.

Very cool! Cories tend to do that when they are spawning, mine did. I would check the plants for eggs.

Interesting. These corys have spawned for me before and I've never seen this.. I'll check the plants for eggs, thanks!

Do you think it would be safe to have 3 layers with: 40g on the top two and 4 10gs on the bottom (with the sides facing the front?)

And also thinking about putting up a 4th layer with a bunch of stuff for storage and some plants

Also what's the gap size between your 40gs?

10s won't fit, they're 20" long this is an 18" rack.

I figured that the 10s would have to be stretching two inches forward

Yea, it's a bit far off for my liking.

I got this same rack (36"x18"x72") from Lowes last week, just on a whim. I swapped out the particle board with some 3/4" plywood, which gives me a lot of peace-of-mind.

I was not brave enough to try 40g breeders on it, though it's the perfect footprint for them; instead I've got up to 20g worth of tanks per shelf. I was worried about the folded-over metal not being as strong as if it were a solid piece.

Are they still holding up well for you?
