If I sit exceptionally still across the room on an evening the brave 2 May come out but even the slightest movement and they are gone. How they even see me move is impressive ha
Limpopo black sand and I feed a mixture of flakes, pellets, the odd wafer and the odd frozen daphnia. Their barbells...
Had then a just over a couple of months now. Can’t say I have seen any aggression towards them, but equally that is because I never see them at all. They are always under the wood and none of the other fish go there.
Tank is due a water change to be fair.
Appreciate this is a well talked about topic but I just wanted to make sure I am not missing something obvious.
I have 6 false julii Corys in a Juwel 180 with 10 red phantom tetras, 8 lemon tetras and 1 Otto.
I literally never see the cories. They all hide under a piece of bog wood...
Whilst I agree with Crimson, water changes are always the best way, it is always a good help in my opinion when your tankmates can lend a hand. I keep both ottos and Amano Shrimp and both are very effective. Ottos love diatoms but as you have experienced can be very fragile and...
Just hoping for a quick insight into why a fair few of my fish swim almost on a diagonal. So rather than on a vertical they are almost swimming more on their side.
They don't have clamped fins, swim normally and are perfectly happy otherwise.
Just can't help but feel this...
So here I am setting up a new second 180l tank as safe to safe this hobby has got me, when I see in my existing tank some of neons have little white bits on the tips of their tail fins. (I'll attach some pics).
Is this fin rot? This could be gutting on two fronts, not only because I...
Thank you all for your responses!! Very helpful stuff. I love all your tanks, they look great.
To make sure I have understood you all right, the grain is more important than the colour and Black Sand is seemingly just as good for Cory's as neutral coloured sand.
My challenge is I am in the...
Sorry for posting again so soon but I have read and read so many articles in preparation for my second tank. In which I have decided to try sand. This is because i want to get some corydora along with other things and want to make it barbell safe.
My question is ultimately what is most...
I am looking to start a second tank going. It is around 95Litres. I was wondering if the following stocking would be ok please?
6 rummy nose
4 or 5 Panda cories
Any other stocking suggestions for this tank are also welcome. I do already have minnows, neons and a ram in my...
I will try to upload a picture/video now
Ok some photos are attached.
Sorry for the sunlight.
Ironically they started swimming when I went near. But you can see the wood and tall plant at the far side, this is where they usually gravitate to
Hope this doesn't seem silly but I am wondering if my fish aren't happy or if I'm just overthinking something normal.
I got minnows, neons and a ram in my rio 125l. Tank been running 2 years and water parameters are sound.
The issue is that my fish only seem to hang in the end if the...
