Tank size corydoras weitzmani

Post by Manoah »

Hello,

Can i put 10x c.weitzmani in a 60cm tank? 60x30x25cm. The water level would be 25 cm to mimic the shallow creeks they live in.

Thank you

I've put 10 C. sterbai in a tank that size. It can be done if you keep the water quality high. But it can also be a fragile balance and is at risk of water chemistry changes if you don't keep it stable.

Cheers,
Eric
