    8G tank, give me some stocking :)

    I've never kept my cory on sand before, I am aware that they are fine with gravel. The cory is about 4 years old, maybe a little older and as I've said the cory is staying in there, okay? Celestial pearl danios it is. EDIT: I had a perfect opportunity to quickly catch the cory and move him...

    8G tank, give me some stocking :)

    The main reason is because of the substrate difference, in the 45G I have black pea gravel which isn't so easy for him to root around in. In the 8G I have sand, which is very easy for him to sift through finding food and he will keep the sand turned over regularly, therefore I won't have any...

    8G tank, give me some stocking :)

    I like the sound of that one Jonathan The shrimp might have to wait until my cory kicks the bucket, which I hope isn't soon, but I do love this suggestion!

    8G tank, give me some stocking :)

    Well I'm afraid the cory is staying there, he's old and needs to chill out after being kept with angels and hoplo catfish. Bettas are out of the question, the tank isn't suitable, the flow is too hard and the decor has some rough edges. I like the idea of celestial pearl danios Anymore...

    parrot blood

    If the tiger barbs are still in there, I would say 2, they get pretty big and then go with some sort of robust bottom feeder, e.g. a few hoplo catfish

    new mollys good idea?

    Look for the gravid spot, it is present in all female livebearers which are pregnant I don't have any pictures of my girls on ear, but it's the area above the 'bum' of the fish, it goes darker as the pregnancy progresses Google it
