Re: Corys at our LFS

Thanks Eric, I'll get a better look at them this week (in person). How rare are Copei? What should a price range be? I would want to pick up 6 to 10.

Thanks again

Re: L240 size

Mine took 2 years to go from 4" to 6". Is in a 125 with other plecos and gets fed heavy. Like any of the large plecos, head room to grow and good food. Are you feeding after lights out?

Cory species

LFS just got these in, He thought they were Punctatus. All of these had some black on their body right below the leading edge of the dorsal. They're only an inch+ in size so still young. Opinions welcome and appreciated

Oddball Cory

Recently bought a group of 6 Corydoras Agassizii from my LFS. When they were in quarantine I noticed one did not look like the other 5. Should have paid more attention at the store. The fish on the right is the correct fish, the one on the left is what I need help with. The other 5 fish school leavi...

Re: Tips for feeding wild-caught Sultan L264 and H. contradens plecos

Make sure the Sultan gets some veggies in his diet. Blanched sweet potato (3 minutes in boiling water after they are peeled and cubed) and organic cucumbers are my little guy's favorites. I also have good luck with Rapashy bottom scratcher. I shy away from bloodworms for all my plecos until they are...

Spotted pleco L-number?

Was at a shop and the owner got these little guys in by mistake and he had no idea what they were. Can someone help identify? I have four so want to make sure I set up the right tank and food.
