Re: What Fish Do I Need

I breed CW009 to support my hobby. It pays for my hobby but no real profit aside from allowing me to splurge once in awhile on other expensive fish I wanted. I looked for a rarer easy care fish that everyone wanted but couldn't get easily. Corys are great for that. Easy care, mostly easy to breed an...

Re: HELP,laser corys die one by one :(

Interesting pattern on "BN"?

Picked these 2 out of a ancistrus tank along with 2 albino BN. Slow growing maybe 3" and 2.5" long compared to the albinos almost 4". Any help on I'd especially the chubby one with the neat pattern. Pretty sure the smaller one is just a regular bn female but not 100%. Thanks in advance.

Re: 5 Substrate Questions

I use quickrete playsand in my tanks, no issue other than a lot of rinsing needed at first. Around $10/ 50 lb bag, easy find at home depot in Canada.

advice on choosing a pleco

I'm starting a standard 4 foot 75G lake tangayakian cichlid tank and my little boy is begging for another pleco since I rehome his giant a year ago. It's occupants are some altolamprolongus calvus, some cyprichromis and hoping to add some synodontis luciPinnis. Water is going to be 78-80F, 300TDS an...

Re: Mixing Corys?

I would advise against mixing those horn dogs with others. I had a group of 5 pandas in a 75G with around 20 Habrosus, there both sees present in both groups. I had to destroy so many eggs due to witnessing fertilizathon on habrosus females eggs by panda males

Re: Gold laser and albino corys interbreeding!!!

I picked the same at a petsmart sold as bronze with gold blotch on shoulder and blue eyes, chalked them upto a mix of the Schultz either and bronze hybrid. Out of the 3 that survived I ended up with 2 females and a male but they never did show any inclination to spawn. Sorry for some reason my phone...

Re: Gold laser and albino corys interbreeding!!!

Same species, provided your albino are albino aeneus and not albino sterbai. The lasers are classified under aeneus (corydorasworld.com), so not hybrids but just a washed out coloration of the gold laser would be the result.

Re: I love corys, but....which ones?

I would suggest some décor in the tank before adding corys, a big bright open space is just going to stress them out.

Re: The Ideal cory fish room

I'd do a mini house (bigger than a shed but smaller than my house) with 400-20Glong tanks, species only, individual sponge filters with several air pumps housed in separate outside compartments (no noise), all tanks as natural as the origin site of fish for décor, heat each tank as necessary with th...

Re: Best BLACK sand for cory

I've used the caribsea super naturals tahitian moon sand and never had an issue with it. Mine is now mixed with playsand because I have malaysian trumpet snails as what I did was use it as a top layer on the playsand.
