Cories should be fine. I would do at least 3, probably 4. Your two GBRs, and a school of Cardinals at least 6 or 7. As long as you have a decent quality filter you should easily be safe with that stocking. Especially with some java Fern in there! Good luck.TheFisher167 said:Are there any fish that could go with those? Or is that a good stocking list? I was thinking maybe adding 2-3 corydoras.
Cories are schooling so 8-12 of them.TheFisher167 said:Are there any fish that could go with those? Or is that a good stocking list? I was thinking maybe adding 2-3 corydoras.
Until its finished cycling. It could take 2-8 weeks, sometimes more. Keep cycling and adding ammonia until you have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and some nitrate. Dont add any fish until the tank is completely cycled. Are you familiar with fishless cycling a tank?TheFisher167 said:Last thing, how long should I let the tank cycle before I add the cories?
Yes I am. In my prior freshwater tanks, I’d set the tank up, and 5-7 days later add a few fish, and I’ve never really had problems. But I am looking into the fishless cycle.BottomDweller said:
