Re: My Platydoras is too big

They can surprize their keeper. I once had them combined with some 30 male platys (Xiphopphorus maculatus I mean) which went well, untill it did not: One morning they were all disappeared. And, I'm certain, the Platydoras were very happy. Suddenly they realized these fishes were eatable. I'm intere...

Re: My Platydoras is too big

Ok, so I'm going to limit his meals as much as I can. On the other hand, I don't really have the choice of feeding the little corydoras at least once a day. I'm trying the frozen food tonight, I hope the Platydoras won't touch it. If he eats there too, I would have no choice but to put him alone in ...

My Platydoras is too big

Hello, I just changed my Platydoras tray and when I caught it I realized that it was just huge! As in the old tank I fed the ancistrus fry twice a day, I think he did not hesitate to take his share... He is now with young Corydoras, which are fed mainly frozen (beef heart, daphnia, homemade pâté). A...

Re: Platydoras and young corydoras: possible ?

This is TL size.
She is a well-fed female (who should perhaps go on a diet by the way) so there is indeed little change that she touches there but I preferred to be sure before trying it.

Platydoras and young corydoras: possible ?

Hello, following a problem on the aquarium of my Platydoras armatulus, I will have to move it to another tank. The main question arises at the level of cohabitation. I have another tank of the same size in which there are currently a hundred young Corydoras which measure between 2 and 4 cm. If I put...

Re: Tank biotope congo for Synodontis nigriventris

Hello, I come to give you news, the baccalaureate is finished! The emerged part still lacks development (I'm waiting for the anubias to gain volume) but the water part is done. I added, after the photo, Anubias barteri but I have a doubt on the fact that they grow given the little light they receive...

Re: Corydoras reticulatus ?

I took the 3 in photo (I had a doubt about the individual asking question). I have observed them and the pelvics seem to be pointed. Seen from below, they also look identical. https://zupimages.net/up/22/32/87p5.jpg https://zupimages.net/up/22/32/tjwo.jpg https://zupimages.net/up/22/32/fbqf.jpg I ha...

Re: Corydoras reticulatus ?

Hello,
I managed to catch all 3. Unfortunately, the pelvis do not seem rounded enough to me for it to be a female. What do you think ?

Re: Identify three Corydoras species

Luckily, I managed to catch it at the same time as my reticulatus. I separated the time of the identification so if other photos are needed, it is possible.

Re: Identify three Corydoras species

Thanks. So here is the last one. As he is very fearful and does not fall into the trap I set, I only have a medium quality video. I hope it will be clear enough for you to give me an idea of the species. It has a slightly yellow stain (not visible on the video) which is not very pronounced (not as m...

Re: Identify three Corydoras species

Hello,

as I don't have more answers for the first one, I will post pictures of those I will buy (ambiacus giant) in order to be sure that they are of the same species.

Here is the second corydoras: about 4 cm but young (about 1 year). Ambiacus too?

Re: Platydoras armatulus or not ? And behaviour questions

Thank you for the photos. The difference between the two species is quite obvious when you have the two next to each other. If I understand correctly it is supposed to be nocturnal. So, could this change in behavior be a sign of illness or a problem? The light is filtered with water lenses so the br...

Re: Platydoras armatulus or not ? And behaviour questions

Thank you for your answer.
He's with young ancistrus and a Hypostomus basilisko at the moment so he doesn't have too much competition (he doesn't hesitate to push them to take the pellets).
In terms of quantity of food, what do you recommend? Starting from a diet every two / three days.

Platydoras armatulus or not ? And behaviour questions

Hello, I welcomed a week ago, a fish under the name of Platydoras costatus. As I knew that the costatus sold are generally armatulus, I didn't ask myself too many questions. But I discovered while reading its file on PC that it was also confused with Orinocodoras eigenmanni. As I have never had Plat...

Re: Identify three Corydoras species

It looks like it but the size doesn't match. I saw C. ambiacus giant on an online sales site, is it a variety or another species?

Identify three Corydoras species

Hi, I come to you again for an identification of Corydoras. I have three to identify but I think I have two distinct species. In order to facilitate identifications (and because they are quite shy and therefore difficult to take a picture of), I will put them one by one on this subject. So we start ...
