Corydoras is a lot smaller than it used to be. This means a LOT of broken links which I am attempting to find, fix and future-proof. First up is getting any requests for all names to work both via clog tags and if linked or used elsewhere for example in Shane's World articles. Here's a full list of...

Candiru sure don't need a ladder (If they had one, though, they might be gladder). Whatever their genus, They go up your penis And start up a home in your bladder.

Re: New Corydoradinae paper

I'm 50/50 on "Microcorydoras", but I think the stronger feeling is that getting rid of numbers in names is the right call (excepting, as you say, the Brochis sub-clades). Epic work on the name gender changes. So, only Brochis remains split, everything else into their new (old) genera. Sorr...

Re: New Corydoradinae paper

Hi Eric, Yes, for sure. Brochis(sc2) etc is the way to go. Brochis(sc1) doesn't need to be, just Brochis is fine for this - good call. Give it 24 hours (so, daily/overnight backups run) and then cool to rename the big groups one per 24 hours? This has been a very long time in "gestation", ...

Re: New Corydoradinae paper

Thanks Ian and Eric for posting - especially Ian; it has been a while.

So, the million$ question for me is do I keep the lineages especially for Brochis' sub-clades.

Will consider for a day or two - not one to rush!

Re: Can't upload photos to CLOG

I've fixed the bug in so far as it now displays an error message when an image is too small.

On the matter of the image being too small in the first place, attached here is an updated image that's larger although you may wish to use something else?

Re: Feeding question

1. Don't know what pellets they are, or size, but generally if they're left after 15 minutes you're feeding too much per feeding. Synos are fine to feed every other day but daily is fine as long as they are not going obese. They will overeat, so be careful. Don't "double-up" if you miss a ...

Re: Hypostomus not growing?

Yup, just keep the food coming and keep the water quality OK and it'll grow for sure. Treating for interal parasites, depending on how you do it, can clear out their guts and so it can take a while for them to bounce back.
