Re: P.buffei in Serious trouble! I need some serious help!

I didn't clean the sponge filter and I didn't replace any of the sponges in the main filter apart from the filter floss, all I did was give each sponge a few squeezes in a bucket of tank water to remove some of the excess waste. I will keep checking the water just in case but I have never seen any I...

Re: P.buffei in Serious trouble! I need some serious help!

Thanks for your reply Viktor! there is a small red patch where his pectoral fin was and his nose just looks a little upturned and white. He is surprisingly active tonight and is being chased about by the black neon tetra. But he spent all day trying to wedge himself behind the filter. I have got an ...

P.buffei in Serious trouble! I need some serious help!

I had raised him since about an inch and he made it to just under 4. he was in his second tank (from a 64l to a 120l) and had 4 batches of fry with his femal...

Re: Buffei or Debauwi?????

Thanks for the quick reply, I will assume they are p.buffei due to your helpful reply and description! Since adding them to the tank 7 are swimming in a tight shoal with 1 occasionally swimming away from the others, whilst 2 are sitting almost motionless at opposite ends of the roots of my massive j...

Buffei or Debauwi?????

I have just bought a group of 10 pareautropius from my lfs which were being sold as p.debauwi. However, due research that I had done previously it has come to my attention that these have a high possibility of being p.buffei! The employee who served me, a very knowledgeable hobbiest, didn't know whi...

There are 9 other corydoras habrosus in the tank, 4 of which are adults whilst the rest are new. Sharing the tank wi...
