    Yesterday a shopping trip took us unexpectedly close to my favorite LFS... and I had a cycled tank sitting empty at home... so this happened. ;D

    No Cory, no Glory.
    Think Peppers are one of the greatest. Good thing you got you a herd. Interaction/behaviour is great cause of that : you'll like them. Don't keep them too warm : they are coolwater-cory's. Nice pics btw !!!! Good luck!

    Lovely, & you got a nice big group of them too, they'll thank you for that :)
    As DoubleDutch says, don't keep them too warm, of all the corys they prefer the lowest temperature.
    They look like they're enjoying the wafer, if it's an algae one swap it for a catfish wafer as corys need protein.
    Enjoy your corys, you'll love them :)

    They will be fine in the short term at the higher temp but keeping them at high temperatures permanently will shorten their lifespan.

    Nice video Aylad, what's the wafer?

    It's still an algae wafer. Haven't had a chance to pick up any catfish wafers yet, but I've given them other foods as well.

    Be sure they'll get protein / meaty food as well indeed. They are 95% carnivores.
