Good point. Thanks, I'd forgotten that very good point.LetDiceFly said:It is best if you get males that are the same size. They will fight at first to develop a pecking order but that should go away rather quickly. If they are about the same size that will prevent one from being picked on.
Yea, they eat poop, uneaten food, whatever they can find.. They do make poop themselves, but since we got them, the platy tank has been a lot cleaner and had much better water chemistry. You can find a number of cory cats that don't get very big so they don't take up a lot of the bioload if you have 2 or 3.Tracy10 said:hi,
just abit puzzled...so do cory cats eat the platy poop ? ewwww ! .
Do I need to have bottom fish then,as don't they just make more poop themselves,which is defeating the object?
I do love catfish but tank only 18 gallon (uk) and I like guppies,tetras,platies & I know I am limited.
sorry manda!! I think they do eat poops!!! cories look for scraps on the bottom of the tank, now what kind of scraps would they find on the bottom of the tank other than fish poops !!!!manda said:no, they do not eat poop. there are very very few fish that eat other fish waste. the ones you will find are not even kept as pets. its a common misconception.
