Re: Corys Hugging Surface

I’m no expert but I’d add an air stone if I had a pump and see if it helps.

Re: How many?

Just seen this online, seems to agree at 1cm per Litre.

Re: Soft water

Ah yes, good point about the cost of treated water. One of my local fish shops has loads of large containers of ROA water lined up in the shop but I don’t suppose they use much if any in most of the stock tanks.

Soft water

Do fish shops generally make an effort to keep their Corydoras for sale in soft water or do they just acclimate them to local water conditions? Im aware they do quite well in hard water although I’d rather not use it. I’m just wondering what conditions to aim for in my own tank when I set it up.

Top Ten Corydoras

Limited to the United Kingdom, what do you think are the top ten (or 20 if you like! ) most commonly available Corydoras in fish shops? It’s nice to pick all kinds of fish you like the look of from a book but many are unlikely to be available locally. TIA.

Re: How many?

Thanks for that. In that case I may get several species, I’ve always been fond of Panda’s as well.

How many?

I’m hoping to set up a 60 Litre cube soon and apart from some shrimp for cleanup I’d like to have some Corydoras but wondering how many? I’ve seen some small smudge spot Corys I like the look of. The tank will be well filtered with an external filter.
