Re: Farlowella questions

Sorry, another question. How many farlowella per tank? I have these two in a 46g tank... assuming that would be the maximum amount for this size, given their size and for their food resources? And another, since they're two different species, on the off chance theyre different sexes, could they hybr...

Odd C. Trilineatus

Picked up some more trilineatus today, one tiny juvenile has neat markings... darker pattern of spots around the eyes and the lateral line stops half way up the body, then forms a zigzag pattern. Longer snout than my other trilineatus, for its size. 20200229_111255.jpg 20200229_121315oddball.jpg 202...

Re: Farlowella diet question

Hi MissNoodle, You are correct that you have two species there. To properly ID your species, use the key found here: Which Farlowella species have 3 rows of ventral scutes? . The key gets you through most of the species, except the 5 most recently described. For those, I put in relevant details to ...

Short video clip of this fish. I love how mellow this one is. My albino bronze are nutty and this one is my calmest.

Re: Spotted Corydoras ID?

Awesome! I was originally told agassizii when smaller as had more black in the dorsal but has grown and markings are off. Thaaat may make it easier to find more of this one.

Spotted Corydoras ID?

Confirm which of the spotted cories this one is? Sex if possible? Individual measures nearly 3 inches, like paleatus size but bulkier.

Re: Farlowella diet question

So an update... im thinking that my original twig is not vittata, his belly schutes do not match. He has three incomplete middle row, not just 2 parallel rows. 20200109_233940schuteview.jpg I took a close photo of his belly schutes. His match this guy, as do his markings and proportions. https://www...

New Weitzmani

I finally got my hands on a couple more weitzmani to up my shoal. Paid a little fortune for them but at least i think i finally got another gender as one is shaped much differently than the others. I now have 5, and 4 of them im thinking are female. All 4 are larger bodied with rounder fins than the...

Cories Digging In Sand

https://youtu.be/ByV9y_j2W_I


They're adorable when they dig through the sand

(Yes the one aeneus is missing an eye. Its a defect, microphthalmia. Harmless, but i picked her up to give her a good home since people may not like a one-eyed fish as it can look poorly on first glance)

Re: Help Sexing C. Weitzmani

Seeing the pelvic fins of each clearly would be helpful, and an overhead dorsal view of the body of each to better assess girth. But just my own opinion based on these photos, none look like females; they have what I would describe as a youthful appearance, so I'm not convinced I'm right on the sex...

Re: Help Sexing C. Weitzmani

All three are over 2 inches and ive had them for months now. They were half the size they were but theyve been done growing for some time now. They are about the same size as a full grown trilineatus

Re: Outlook for sickly rescues?

Okay an update... The tiny guy has finally put on weight and he has almost doubled his size. The stumpy fin one has grown the fin back, though the spine is still a nub within the fin. But shes looking really good. Both have coloured up and filled in. The girl with the stubby fin: 20200104_184130.jpg...

How many Pygmaeus?

Currently have 7 Pygmaeus corydoras in a 10g with some ramshorn snails. No other fish.

Curious how many could fit comfortably? Theyre so so tiny

Re: C. Aeneus or lookalike?

The failure to grow may mean there's something intrinsically wrong with the small individual. That would also explain its lack of color. I don't mean to suggest it's diseased, but rather perhaps a birth defect or genetic defect or hormone imbalance - who knows what - is preventing it from taking of...

Re: C. Aeneus or lookalike?

Most corys sold in the USA (and I'd imagine in Canada) as bronze corys Corydoras aeneus are farmed. As such they are some kind of aeneus -like cory, but are probably not aeneus as it was originally described (a species native to the island of Trinidad, separated from the mainland). There are many a...
