Re: New to cories and forum

Cardinals are an excellent choice, I use Trigonostigma heteromorpha mostly and a variety of things for the corys that like cooler water. You may also wish to consider several Otocinclus or a smaller number of Farlowella.

Re: save my l330

Likely the medication reduced or destroyed the microbacteria on the fishes stomach (see this , and the papers it references), these take time to replenish and is a bit hit-or-miss. It's not really known where they come from (suggestions are decaying wood, other fishes, other Panaque). The other issu...

Re: save my l330

I'd guess something has happened when the fish was transferred and it's stopped eating. Not a problem if it was eating well before the move. I don't think it is disease related as you don't mention newer fishes being added to the L330 tank. It's important to confirm this. If the fish is struggling f...

Re: save my l330

What are you feeding, how long has the tank been setup and how long have you had the fish, what temperature is the tank, can you post pictures etc?

Cheers,

Re: New to cories and forum

Guessing you will use sand for the substrate. It's the best all-rounder for Corys. Only another thing to say is if you're not trying to breed them, consider dither fishes which will help with seeing your corys more.

Re: New to cats

One thing to bear in mind, is that the brands of foods, and to a much lesser degree, the types of prepared foods available in different markets are different. I'm not sure about the first four being available in the UK for example.

Hope that helps the conversation,

Re: New to cats

Bronze corys will eat most prepared foods that sink. Tablets, pellets or wafers based on flake food are a good staple, avoid foods for vegetarian leaning fishes. The general rule is feed two or three three times a day no food should be left after about 15 minutes. If there is, you are feeding too mu...

Re: Rhamdia quelen

Thanks HH, I see there is a lot of work being done unpicking these spp. Will keep an eye on it as those spp. that appear in holiday snaps and those others that appear in the trade from time to time surely are no longer Rhamdia quelen.

11th Sept 2020 - Forum upgrade

All, We'll be offline from 1530 GMT today with a upgrade of the forum from v3.3.0 to v3.3.1, something of a milestone as it means the software is some 20 years old. Thankfully still well maintained. We are pleased to announce the release of phpBB 3.3.1 "Bertie’s Twenty". This version is a maintenanc...

Re: Rhyacoglanis paranensis pics 2 and 3 don't belong

OK, so I have another picture and I can see there is no joined in the dark verticle stripe on the caudal and the one around the caudal peduncle. So, good call on the ID, given where it's from however, this then makes Pseudopimelodus mangurus a strong candidate. I've asked @The.Dark.One / Steve for h...

Re: Rhyacoglanis paranensis pics 2 and 3 don't belong

I don't know, but it's about a "light cheek" and the stripe on the caudal connection to the stripe around the caudal peduncle for me.

Yeah agreed at a species level, I am trying to check the genus is right (or not).
