  1. Substrate
    So I have a 40 gallon planted tank that is very low maintenance and low up-keep, which works really well for my really hectic work schedule. It's been up and running with flourite substrate for about 5 years now. I have a big love for corydoras and although the few I have seem fine, I'd love to...

    I was wondering if I could put roughly 30-40 corydoras in this aquarium? I haven't put them in it yet, still waiting on the cycle to finish. I also want to put roughly 10 cherry Rasboras, 15 serpae tetras, and maybe one electric blue acara. The temp will be between 76-78F. I have 5 pieces of...

    Im new to this great site so I hope Im not posting my query in the wrong section.... Anyways I recently found out that my city adds sodium carbonate to its tapwater. I have a 45 gallon aquarium thats still cycling (so fishless) and I was wondering if sodium carbonate will cause sensitive...

    My 15 has been cycling for a few weeks now. Water parameters look good, and I used filter media from my already-cycled tank. I plan to run the marineland penguin 150b in there, with 1 peppered Cory (it's what I already have), 3 panda corys, 2 rams, and 10 neons. According to the aqadvisor thing...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently added RCS and some dwarf corydoras to a 20g. Over the past few days I've noticed one shrimp in particular sneaking up on resting cories and flipping them over, has anyone else experienced this? It doesn't seem to happen too often. Should I be worried?
  6. Substrate
    Starting a new tank and would like to house corydoras catfish, possibly loaches. Will have shrimp as well but doubt that effects anything. Was wondering what substrate is good for them. I do want it a heavily planted aquarium. I read around and sand is the obvious go to but I am nervous...

    I've been watching the thread about Corydoras performance on sand versus gravel. https://www.fishlore.com/aquariumfishforum/threads/busting-the-sand-cory-barbel-myth.273423/ I got a lot of information from that thread. Busting The Sand Cory Barbel Myth. I've also not sustained consistent plant...

  10. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hey guys, so this is my corydoras habrosus tank with 8 of them. Babies no adults as of yet. Sort of also the spawning tank right now. As this tank is the only tank I have in the house thats cycled for about a year with no other fish. 20L is being cycled. But in the mean time enjoy. Sorry for the...

    Stating the obvious to some, so please let me indulge. I move my fish around from 10 gallon to 29g. I have Corys, Otos, female Bettas and Gouramis. All of them behave better in a 29g. My water parameters aside, bigger is better. The type of landscaping is next in importance. The Corys and...

    Hello, Recently my corydoras have bred (not sure what species), and I now have a decent group of 17 day old fry. However 3 days ago they spawned again and the fry have just hatched. I have them placed in a breeder box with the older fry for now. My question is, can I put the new fry with the...

    I have 11 thriving sterbai corydoras for sale! As you all know, they are pretty much the perfect tank mate for just about every plant and fish on earth! There are 10 sterbai corydoras and 1 very cool albino sterbai cory for sale in total. They are all thriving, fat, incredibly colorful (the...
  14. 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...

    This tank has been set up for several months. With in the last week or two I have noticed this strange cory behavior. I thought the fish was hypoxic and losing consciousness so I added the air line in the front of the tank. Normally I rely on the HOB filter to oxygenate the water. The addition...

    Hi, I am relatively new fishkeeper, as I've just had my Betta for 6months now. And I'm finally ready for a bigger tank! I am currently in the process of cycling a 20gal high And I'd like to stock it with the following: 2 dwarf honey gouramis 2 (or more) black phantom tetras 6 pygmy corydoras...

    Bought some cories and CPD from the petstore this weekend. Long story short, 5 of the 6 CPDs have died (clamped fins, weakening, white dust/fuzz on back and sides, then dead the next day) and the survivor does not look well. Leaning towards columnaris. :help: The cories, weirdly, seem to be...

    Today as I was transferring some elodea from a friend's tank to mine I noticed brown eggs all over my aquarium glass. As my tank inhabitants are guppies, two male bettas (separated), two juvie male BN plecos, Amano shrimp, and corydoras, the logical assumption was that they where the eggs of the...

    It's me again. I apologize. I really value suggestions from everyone here though, even if it's not what I want to hear! I'm a little back to the drawing board stocking my Aquastyle 9 gallon, as the betta (Buck) was behaving very badly toward some new ember tetras and will be living in a...
