    Filter on or off during feeding time?

    I really don't ever turn mine off except for the times I've moved. I find that leaving it on during water changes helps to clear up some of the stuff that I stir up from the bottom of the tank during my gravel vac.

    new babies, suggestions and advice please!

    How did you separate them? Do you have another tank you can set up? They are in danger of being eaten as long as they are bite-size, unfortunately.

    Help Not sure what it is

    Hmmm...the reason I asked is because I had 3 julii cories that died from having sunken bellies. They never stopped eating though so I believe they had a parasite as well. I agree with catsma_97504 that you are overstocked. You should consider getting a bigger tank or getting rid of some of...
