Ive been avoiding the topic but i fear the time has common for things to be discussed. Recently i lost most of my corys to various things, 2 of them were simply old(5 and 6 i belive) and one of them came down with a nasty fungus. I only had 4 becuase i was working on the school. Unfortunetly i only have my young male pepper left. I of course want to restock asap but im lacking 2 things. the first is a QT tank, when i took my KSB in as a rescue she needed the tank soooo yeah. The second thing is a source. None of the LFS(theres 1 actually) near me have peppers and i really dont want to special order from the store becuase they are asking $5-$8 a fish, they are heavily over priced in everything, but they do have healthy stock. SO ive kind of been at a stand still. I am looking around to see if anyone has a open space but im not finding any. I dont want to just take him to the store as it would be kinda pointless imo, theres no peppers there, they would have him in a crowded tank and the chances of him being bought and added to a appropriate setup are slim(the employees dont get any kind remarks from me). So whats the lesser of the 2 evils? Keep trying to find a Qt tank and let him stay in the 29 in the meantime? Or return him to the store? They do have some steribi and bronze but their bronze are bloody huge(like 3-4") its rediculos i thought they were small. Theres also albinos but im not intrested. I dont think he will school with any of the others anyways, hes always been slightly indipendent from the other cory(i introduced him 6 months after i had some others). I know its bad to keep him alone but i do want him to live a healthy life atleast, i know i can provide that much.
