Re: Raising Corydoras fry in bare bottom tanks

Thank you for the encouragement! I’m really excited today as I drove to my best local fish store and I was chatting with a store attendant who was super helpful and knowledgeable about using what types of dither fish to get my green laser cories to overcome their shyness...she brought me to a tank w...

Re: Raising Corydoras fry in bare bottom tanks

Thank you I’ll need all the luck I can get.....never try breeding cories before.

Re: Raising Corydoras fry in bare bottom tanks

I just received three more Corydoras eques from Wet Spot to go with my three from my LFS and they are doing great together. Once the 7 days Ich-X treatment is done (I do this as a way to make sure no Inc comes through) then I am going to try to get them to spawn. I have a thin layer of fine sand tha...

Re: C. Weitzmani Spawn

Awesome! I am thinking of getting a small group of 6 or 7 from Dan's fish over at Get Gills too. These corydoras look great and they seem to be hardy when they are bred in captivity. I like that they prefer a bit cooler water as I keep all my big fat pearlscale goldfish at 72 F in their 40 breeder t...

Re: Cory and possibly Ich

Thank you Eric. I dont have Nox Ich but I have both Rid-Ich by Kordon and Ich-X that Cory at Aquarium Coop uses. I am just not sure which one to use and whether corydoras might react badly to any of these. But according to Cory, he has not seen any adverse reaction to Ich-X and his company sells it....

Cory and possibly Ich

Hi everyone; A quick question. I noticed that some of my cories are flashing against the really fine sand that I have as the tank substrate. I can’t tell if they have Ich specks or if they are getting sand on their body. Regardless, I am wondering if you can let me know the safest way to deal with a...

Re: Just saying ahi

Hi Eric: Thank you for your reply. Yes, I really liked the color of the green lasers so I purchased 10 to start because I read that they are most happy when there is a big group. I then saw the Eques a week later at the same store and they seemed very friendly and active, and I saw on TM aquatics th...

Quick question about the Green Lasers

Hi everyone:

I think I may already have asked the question that I had in mine so I have removed it. My apologies. Too much time spent in zoom at my job is frying my mind.

Just saying ahi

Hi everyone. My name is Mike and I live outside of Boston USA and I just found and joined this forum. I am a big fancy goldfish fan but recently I discovered cories, specifically the Green laser cories which I gave 10 and three corydoras Eques. I originally bought 5 eques but one died when I first b...
