My new Juli Cats!

  1. Jon Well Known Member Member

    Got a pair of juli cats today because i like a nice full aquarium... the fish i have now arent full grown and im going to build another 10 gallon once i find a glazier.

    My aquarium right now has 1 sunset ( i think) dwarf gourami 4 guppies ( 1 m 3f) and 2 juli cories (sexes unknown but due to one being slightly rounder and larger than the other i believe i might have 1 male 1 female... i wont breed them because it would look pretty dumb trying to breed 2 dudes if im not correct)

    Heres some pics:

    ** crap my camera isnt working ill try to post them later... they are about 1 inch long and are covered in leopard like spots with a black dark zigzaggy line down horizontally through the back half of their body

    There are so many Cory with cool patterns! I've found that BetterBettas is a nice site to get Corydoras - they have 22 different types for sale and supposedly have great service!

    I love Julii! I'm trying to find a group of Reticulatus myself.

    They also have 3 different types of the Pygmy Corydoras! I'm ordering some after I get my other tank set up :)

    Mine are not right now because they are new members of my aquarium and im sure they are just getting used to it but in the store they seemed to be

    You have them in a group of two - Corydoras like to be in groups. Try and get two more and I almost gaurantee they will be more active!

    they like to be in groups of 3 actually but i dont want to get 1 more as i am already pushing the limits of my tank. they are fine to be kept in groups of 1-2 although they do much better in groups of 3... I might consider getting another after i build my next tank

    No, they really don't do well in small groups. They are very timid when kept as such. When I bought my Corys they were in seperate tanks - 2 in one, 2 in another, and 1 by itself. They were all very timid - hiding among the few decorations in the tank. As soon as I got them all home they were exploring the whole tank and have been very active.

    Are you trying to debate that they dont do well in groups of 3 or that they dont do well in 2's or 1's.?

    If you are debating they dont do well in groups of 3 then you are dead wrong.
    If you are debating they dont do well in groups of 2's or 1's then you are partially correct. They would prefer a group of 3 but i simply cant fit another fish into my tank. I would like to but I cant. They are doing relatively well for newcomers so im not too concerned.

    Pretty cool - the ones I've seen, like Jon, are tiny black dots. Looks good though.
