    I have a 20G L with a school of White Cloud, two Sparkling Gouramis, and 6 Aeneus Corydoras. Five of the corydoras are bronze, and one is albino. The albino is a 1+ yr old, 2+ in female, extremely fat with eggs, has laid (unfertilized) eggs in the past (because there were no other corydoras)...

    So I started medicating my 10-gallon tank with Melafix for a week and on the last day, one of the Cory developed red splotches early that morning, started racing around the tank, and then dropped dead later that evening. I wasn't worried about the others until yesterday when I saw that two of...

    Hi there! I have a tank with 6 peppered cory catfish, a betta, some snails, and some shrimp. I also have lots of live plants. I'm a newer aquarium keeper, and noticed a few white specks on my betta. When I asked my much more experienced friend to take a look at him, she confirmed it was an...

    I have a newer low-tech 75 gallon with rainbowfish, cories, and a gourami. I'm new to the hobby and very new to planted tanks, so I appreciate any help! I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm also new to this website, so I apologize for any format issues in advance.

    Hi all, complete newbie at keeping fish and aquatic plants here. Really need some advice on cycling a new tank of mine. I've done a lot of reading but I can't find anything regarding what I should do now. Please bear with my story, and thank you SO much in advance. I'm freaking out! I got a 65...

    I have a 10 gallon low tech planted tank with 3 bronze corydoras and 1 amano shrimp. Today during my water change I noticed a white, cloudy slightly raised spot on one of my cory's eyes. From what I can tell he is the only fish affected and it's only on one of his eyes. Does anyone have any idea...

    Hello all, I recently added four Corydora Julii to my planted aquarium. Ever since I added them my GBR has become very aggressive towards the Corys. Will this aggression subside over time? I have a 29 gallon tank that has a fair amount of plants. Will this be a longer term issue. So far the tank...

    I've had some False Julii Corydora for about 6 months. After a couple months I noticed some mild barbel erosion on a couple of them but it seemed to stop progressing. Recently it started up again and accelerated very rapidly to the point their barbels are mostly gone and one has a severe lesion...
  9. Substrate
    I'm thinking of swapping out Eco complete for a sand to be better for my corydoras. Are there any fine sands that have a high or moderate CEC? If not, are there any high CEC materials that could go under the sand but wouldn't need replacing like soil would? Would relatively hard clay balls work...

    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...

    Here is my version of an Amazon biotope. I started this tank to give my Sterbai Corydoras a more natural habitat than where I had them. The goal was to create a muddy bottomed, driftwood strewn, shallow river bed in the Amazon basin. I wanted to have only South American species in the tank...
  12. Aquascaping
    Ok guys, I am thinking about starting an Amazon biotope in a spare 29 gallon tank I have. Specifically I want to construct a natural habitat for my Sterbai Corydora. I really like these fish and want an environment where they feel secure and can establish a nice shoaling group. I am not...

    Does anyone have experience with these 2 species? Are they very different in size, personality and requirements (lighting, flow, food,etc). I hear pygmies are very shy. Cheers.

    I've had all my cories a little over a year. 2 are in a 10 gallon and 4 are in a 125 gallon. For some reason in the past month their bellies have turned orange. I feed them crushed koi flakes, shrimp pellets, dried bloodworms(and egg noodles for a treat in the 125 gallon tank). They have been...

    I've been setting up a planted 20g long, have had my four corydoras for at least three weeks. Today i noticed that one of the corys has a hairlike, moldy growth over his mouth. He is also lethargic, and surfaces for air much more frequently than any other fish in the tank...
