    Best Shrimp for Corydora tank.

    I recently built my corycatfish tank (YAY :;bananad2) I was thinking of adding maybe 4 shrimp with them. Ive kept Ghost shrimp with them before but was thinking of a different kind this time. One that would be a bit larger so they won't get swallowed by mini vaccumes. Are there any others...

    Question Corydoras Id: Longipinnis Or Paleatus?

    I got these corydoras at petco about two years ago, and wanted to get one or two more to fill out the shoal. I thought they were paleatus but I see some long dorsal fins and now I can’t be sure. Can anyone tell either way if these fellas are corydoras paleatus or corydoras longipinnis?
