cories

  1. Fish
    I realise this is a very vague question, but I thought perhaps someone might have some thoughts. I haven't kept any cories in years, as much as I love them, because aside from the first two albino ones I got who lived for ages, every cory I've added to my tank seems to do alright at first, and...
  2. Substrate
    Hello all, I have read around here that Black Diamond sand is a great substrate. I agree, and want to use it in my 10. However, I have heard that it is too "scratchy" for cories. Does anyone have experience using it in a tank with cories? Thanks!

    I have a 30 gallon tank setup with lots of driftwood and a thick vegetative mass of floating plants. I created this tank specifically for a group of Sterbai Corydora that I had hoped would feel more comfortable in a more natural setting and perhaps breed. I have 9 cories in this tank with...
  4. Texas
    Hey Everybody! My albino cories have been breeding like rabbits. I'd like to give away two dozen (24) for free. You must have an appropriate habitat set up and be able to pick them up from my house in Austin (Texas) near I-35 and Parmer. If at all possible I would like to hand them out this...

    I have a 65 gallon tank, soon to be heavily planted. I'm working on the stocking, and I'm going for the 'whole-dang-lot-of-small-fish' look. My current stock is: 5-6 Beckford's pencilfish (never see them all, so I can't tell if I have all 6) Two dwarf pencils that school with the others. One...
  8. Fish
    As you may or may not know, I recieved a 65 gallon aquarium for Christmas. My plans for it are a school of 8 or so pygmy cories, 5 or so slight larger cories like Julii cories, 5 or so zebra danios, 12 or more smallish pencilfish, something like 3-5 otocinclus, and a twig (farowella) catfish. I...

    So, four days ago, i noticed during feeding fime, my electric yellow female guppy had something white, and circular in her mouth, and it was big enough that she wasnt getting it down, and was trying to eat around it. I was worried it was an actual mouth problem, so i caught her, and that made...

    In the event that I get a larger tank for Christmas, I would like to add pencilfish to my fish selection. I currently have 5 small zebra and blue danios, 6 1" cories, a couple of assassain snails, possibly a pest snail or two, a pygmy cory who will be rehomed soon, 3-5 (two may have been eaten)...
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Here I was all set to get a school of pygmy cories when I realized that I have a bunch of lilaeopsis planted in sand that I don't think has the most sturdy roots. Will the cories dig that up on a regular basis? It was a pain in the butt to plant and I'd rather not have to replant it all the...

  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    I am getting ready to set up my first (real) planted tank, right now I just have a 2.5 gallon bowl with some java moss. So far I have no fertilizer, substrate is fine black sand, which is clogging my filter, but is easy to unclog. Tank- standard 5.5 gallon Filter- 10 gallon whisper in tank...
  14. Tank Journals
    After all that fuss I made last month, and the giant anti-climactic silence afterward, I think I should start my tank journal. So last month I did a bunch of research and decided on a 10G and was supposed to have a big shopping trip. That plan fell right apart, but I did assemble some pieces...
