Re: 123 or not

C123 are very similar to elegans, and are sometimes referred to as an elegans-type Corydoras. So it’s not surprising that the fish are similar except for the yellow fins.

Re: 123 or not

Maybe elegans? I’ve seen them mislabeled as C123.

Re: Feeding Repashy

I only feed my fish Repashy. So that means every day, although I do have one day a week in which I don't feed. Repashy is an excellent food source to feed on a daily basis. You can switch between different formulas if you want to make it more interesting for yourself. Repashy contains high quality ...

Re: Corydoras CW124 FEMALES

You might post on the forum at Potomac Valley Aquarium Society. (You'll have to join the forum, but it is free.)

Two club members brought back some CW124 a couple of years ago and have been breeding them fairly prolifically.

Re: Weird question: Hiding blackworms

Hi Quokka, True, I save blackworms in the fridge in an open box with 2" water. But if you can't do that, then you can leave the worms in the bag, closed with a rubber band. Rinse the worms with fresh water when you first buy them, and leave the fish in the bag covered by at least 1/2" water (you do...

Re: Question about NLS Algaemax for jumbo fish

I’ve used the food, but in a smaller size. It sank quite readily. I would think the bigger pellets would sink even more quickly.

What are these Corydoras?

Found today at a LFS with some C. trilineatus. I’ve never seen this species before. Spotted pattern around the head, with a bluish-gray blotch neat the tail.

Cory ID? CW078?

This fish came in a group of Corydoras C123. The other fish all look like C123 , but this one doesn't. It resembles CW078, to my eye. Is it a CW078? Or is a C123 variant? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/uoSk0MCbJMMpTGRZqmnvs0Dt_K72g2vxfGkP7d2ErJXAD3tMCQaJ2HWXU4EXEzAymM9OgcqhLUyBp0mPh2FwWCpjf5ZNw9K...

Re: Corydoras and Sewellia compatibility

I don’t have experience, but I’d think the flow you’d need all the time for the Sewellia would be more than most Corydoras could tolerate, at least on a continuous basis. For that reason, I’ve not bought any Sewellia.

But I’d like to hear about actual experience, too.

Re: Prefilter yes or no?

I use sponge prefilters on my canisters. Like TwoTankAdmin said, use coarse foam and clean it frequently. I’ve converted most of my tanks to mattenfilters, though. You do need to watch those, though, even if driven by air. The lifters can get clogged, very occasionally. Also, I’ve had some mulm buil...

Re: Which Corydoras is this?

Very similar, although the top horizontal line on my fish is much thicker than the lines below.
