    Hello everyone so recently this is a new 20 gallon tank I set up it has been cycling nicely and running nice also i would like to say that yesterday I saw that my 2 pepper corys were acting as if they were trying to breed or something and I only have 2 pepper corys so far so it's kinda strange because one kept touching the other one repeatedly and the other one didn't really care so I'm not sure if it was a type of breeding behavior or they were just being playful with each other also pretty soon I'm going to upgrade there school to at least 3 more f509cccd65c6e9ce22b26a003b7fa9a3.jpg[​IMG][​IMG]

    Also the goldfish you see I may donate when he gets really big or mabey sooner

    You might also want to rehome the algae eater. They get to about 11 inches.

    I would rehome the goldfish for sure. The one you have gets too large for this tank size and shouldn't be with tropical fish.

    I see 1 panda cory and 1 peppered cory. I would rehome one and up the shoal of the other to at least 6. They really do better in a shoal of their own species.

    Think you made a mistake with that ID.
    It isn't an algae-eater.

    To prevent coming issues I'd rehome the goldfish as soon as possible. It doesn't belong in there with the other (sub)tropical fish.

    I'd rehome the dojo. He needs a 48" tank minimum and is social so should be kept in pairs or groups
