I believe the standard 10 gallon tanks are: 20" L x 10" W x 12" H. We put flat marbles (from the crafts department at the store) in the tank with our corys.. it needs a little more cleaning than gravel, but looks great and gives the corys nothing but smooth surfaces for their delicate barbels.aj_1992 said:i was just wondering if i can have corydoras and zebra danios together in a 10 gallon tank. i thought about guppies and z.danios, but i was afraid that the guppies would get bullied by the zebra danios. and does anyone know what the approximate dimensions of a typical 10 gallon aquarium is? jw
Thanks. Yea, i noticed that happening so I set up a container with some blue gravel in it that I drop the wafer on. Put a bridge on it and dug out some of the gravel under the bridge in their "lake". They especially like when i put the food under the bridge and it's funny to see just the end of their tails sticking up as they all eat it. Right now it's regular aquarium gravel, but i'm going to replace it with the smaller gravel that will be more gentle on the corys.wolfman21 said:Good call with the marbles. Make sure they get food because some of it might drop between the marbles and they may have trouble getting at the food that way.
yea, a lot of people get them (or totally ignore them) thinking "oh those are JUST cleaner fish, nothing interesting", but they are so fun to watch and they are such hard little workers. Sometimes I'll watch one thru the big magnifying glass and watch the way they move their barbels and all. But I love when they take a break for play time most. Work hard - play hard if you're a cory cat.wolfman21 said:the cories in a group are so fun to watch, whether they're swimming around or eating or just sitting.
