    Identification help: corydoras aenus or splendens?

    Wow. That looks VERY similar. I've not much experience, especially with cories, but I guess that would explain why they do not cluster with the albinos. Thanks for the input!

    Identification help: corydoras aenus or splendens?

    I picked up a few corydoras that were labeled as "Green Cory" and to my knowledge would refer to C. Aenus (the same as the albino cories I already had). Once acclimated, I noticed that the behavior of these "green" cories seems different from my albinos--the green ones very seldom leave the...

    75g too much for a beginner?

    I appreciate the input. I definitely want to stay on the positive side of this remaining an enjoyable, year-round hobby rather than it turning into something to dread or just plain "work"--especially while keeping the quality of life of the future tank's occupants as the top priority.

    Weighing the pros and cons of a larger tank (75g) against something maybe a bit more manageable like a 40 gallon breeder.

    75g too much for a beginner?

    Thank you! I was in PetCo a few weeks ago and the size and shape of that 40 gallon breeder was interesting. I liked the shorter but wider shape. If it wasn't so easy to be tempted by larger tanks I probably would have purchased it.

    That's a lot of extremely helpful information. Avoid plant-rich substrate is the opposite of what I would have guessed. So something like sand or small gravel instead. I like how the red flourite looks--perhaps combine that WITH sand?

    75g too much for a beginner?

    Thanks. I want to enjoy the process of getting everything set up exactly how I want it. Without the surprise at the end that I missed a crucial element at the beginning that may restrict plant growth.

    Thanks. So the water parameters are more steady as water volume increases. That makes sense. With relation to live plants, does the depth difference between a 55g, 75g, or 90g have a noticeable impact on plant growth?

    75g too much for a beginner?

    I am wanting to get into the hobby as I have been fascinated for years but haven't had the opportunity to set up a tank of my own until now. I am wanting to build a planted tank with a fair amount of driftwood and keep an Asian theme with dwarf gouramis. I may be under the spell of "bigger is...

    Hello from Southwest Missouri! I'm in the planning stages of my first ever planted tank and first tank, in general, since I was a little kid. I've been reading through some threads here and there and I figured I should jump in and get more involved and learn.
