Yes, quite a personality. As most of my fish it's adopted and living with my Venezuelan herd.

beautiful fish and setup what are these leaves BTW?

You meand Indian Almond Leaves ?
Those are known to be anti-bacterial, but stain the water a bit (which I like). They might lower Ph a bit as well !!!

I've a lot of botomfeeders loving to shovel the leaflitter, which is found in their natural habitat as well

Thanks. They are. Had 19 and now 25 - 30 (more an more of the fry appear to be Venezuelans instead of plain aeneus)

Especially for Alison @aliray
Such a pretty girl. And thank you so much for the picture. I do have a question for you . Where did you get the yellow catfish from or did you breed it your self.? Alison

Do you mean the yellow Cory ??
 

aliray

Yes I do. I have never heard or seen one like it, He or she is really pretty. Alison

I adopted him (as most of my fish) in a verrrry poor state Alison.

Some love, good food, companions, aso made him blossom !!


f2f9722fd842e1750ee4b5ef1f7ccaeb.jpg

It's a peppered Cory that is not albinism, but Xanthorism.
Yellow with blue eyes just like your favorite bn !!!! In the pic the eyes look red, but they aren't (reflection).
Never seen one alike.
Hoping to breed soon and try to get a yellow strain C.paleatus "DoubleDutchi"
 

aliray

Do you Ship? Joking, but that would be great if you get babies and then breed back. You develop that and you will probably be rich because everybody is going to want one or more. Just imagine a whole school of them swimming around. They would be gorgeous. There is something special about blue eyed yellow fish. What a big difference between the first picture and the second........Alison

Hahaha. Yeah a school would be great.
Even at Planet Catfish no one had one like this hahaha.

Rich ???? In this hobby hahahaha.
 

aliray

I have a feeling if you do manage to breed them then @ Coradee is going to be knocking at your door. All right maybe not rich but independently wealthy

Gorgeous corys!

How many different species do you have and how many of each?
 

DoubleDutch

Gorgeous corys!

How many different species do you have and how many of each?

About 30 Venezuelans 9 Peppered (1 yellow), 6 Concolor, 3 Pandas (numbers to be upped), 6 albino Aeneus, 6 emerald green aeneus, about 70 small kind of aeneus (fry included).
 

el337

I love corys. I would love some more species but no time/money for more tanks.

Thank you for sharing the pics.. I enjoy seeing them.

They really are great fish.
Tell me one species that is more peacefull and friendly !!!!
 

marijo

Wow beautiful corys, great tanks, if I would be one of your fish and I could talk I would say "AH, Home Sweet Home"
With all of these corys, how many tanks do you have?

Hahaha. 11 running but trying to downgrade. Problem is every breeding tank gets some permanent inhabitants hahaha.
 

marijo

Haha , it seems always easier to get a new tank then getting rid of one, I can see tetras on one of your pictures, I'm curious to know what other species of fish do you keep?

Me too, Alison
 

DoubleDutch

Looks like an oto.
 

aliray

That's what I was thinking but I have never seen that kind of close up of an Ottos face. Thanks for the answer. Alison
 

DoubleDutch

DoubeDutch's tanks and fishies

Indeed an Oto Alison

Thought you meand the one in the same pic hahaha
 

aliray

That I wouldn't have guessed. I will have to check it out again. I must have missed the whiskers. Alison
 

DoubleDutch

Sorry for the confusion.
It is an Oto-face indeed !!!
 

aliray

Yup finally got it. Alison
 

DoubleDutch

My Otos are scavaging the leaves for food leftovers (fisheggs this time).
 

marijo

HI there beautiful cory! I love my sterbaI cory!
Beautiful tanks, I like their natural look

DoubleDutch

Don't you just love free fish food.Alison

It are frozen (bought) fisheggs Alison hahaha.
 

aliray

Sorry I thought the cardinals got busy or the cory cats. All my fish pigged out on frozen blood worms today. I can't afford caviar for my fish, I am on a budgetWas that Belluga or another brand....Alison

Hahaha yes Russian caviar. A tin just was $ 20.000,--. Only the best is good enough for my fishies hahaha
 

el337

Enjoy seeing your fish. How often do you do a headcount?
 

DoubleDutch

Impossible. Tried to count my Venezuelans earlier. Ok 23, oh no there is another and another. Ok 25, oh no I already counted that one. Ok 24 oh nooooooo there are some in the back.
Did I count those ?????????
 

el337

LOL I guess so. I only have 6 corys and I get worried if I don't see one of them. I wonder if they're sick or dead somewhere. I even inspect each of them every now and then to make sure they're all looking healthy. I think I would drive myself crazy if I had as many as you. But I definitely want to get more... I love these guys.
 

DoubleDutch

Encountered an issue as well this week. One of my aeneus breeding group had progressive finrot. Matter of days.
It's in an hospital tank now with JBL Ektol Fluid. Hoping I rescued enough tissue to grow back !!
Poor Cory
 

el337

Aww, poor guy. Hope he recovers soon!
 

DoubleDutch

Thanks, doing pretty good. Second course to be sure and then back into the main tank.
Crazy thing is the others, which I watch closely, don't seem to have any problem.
 

DoubleDutch

These are great quality. Larger and healthier. Than the ones he had earlier !
No it's the pic (angle) Alison.

aliray

Really nice . I like that background.. Alison
 

Coradee

Lovely photo DoubleDutch, so nice to see a good size cory group
 

Cujo8411

Very nice tank set up, I like it a lot.


 

marijo

Beautiful set-up! Sterbai's stripes pattern is really nice and they have shinny colors also. The cones, are they pine or spruce or ?

"Alba" the last new member of the Peppered-community. First time in years this adopted lady sees some of her own species.
