The corys will be great, we love our little julii corys. Keep an eye on your paramaters after you get the tank running so you'll know when to add them, since corys can be sensitive to the water conditions.gmann21193 said:thank you! now i can pull out my 5 gal from my garage and into the bedroom. ;D
another question...ahhh i forgot! dont you hate that? ill post when i remember.... darn
The gravel looks good. Looks like the tank is flourescent, so that will help with the heat some. We have the same problem with heat & can't afford a chiller. We leave the flap open and have one of those new high-powered fans that we direct at the side of the tank to try to reduce heat. Is there anyway to rearrange furniture so you'd have a spot for the tank away from the window? possibly near, but not directly in, the air flow from the AC vents? If you use icecubes, make them from the same treated tap water that you put in the tank and don't put too many in at once so you don't drop the temp too fast.gmann21193 said:I still need a heater and such, but I live in Southern California, so it tends to get pretty hot over here. I'm worried about summer approaching and the water getting to hot. Is there a way to keep the water below 80 degrees when it is a hot day? The only thing i could think of would be icecubes??? lol
Really? even the julii or pandas? Did you show her the movie we posted of our corys and tell her they're hard working fish that can be playful and a lot of fun to watch as they zip about the tank looking for anything they can clean or playing games? That's too bad she feels like that, they are great fish and i think beautiful in their coloring and design.gmann21193 said:ehhh my mom for some reason thinks corys are hideous and she doesnt want me to get them. The only cory she thought wasnt hideous was a rare species lol but i dont think she will let me get them ;(. If she doesnt let me get them ill probably just get a few african dwarf frogs i also think those are cool but yea thanks everyone for helping me out
A big tank like that & you could get something like: 4 juliis, 4 pandas and 4 peppered corys, 6 otos and 1 apple snail for the clean-up crew.gmann21193 said:yea the juliis were the worst in her eyes :-\
oh well. Once I get my 150 gallon tank once my friend's fish die, I'll get a school of them. Like 10!!!! lol or more.
