got 3 cories today for my 10g fry tank, they are about 1.5" ....i know cories should be in groups and i was asking if anyone knew how many i should have in my 10g...i really dont care how many i gotta have because the fry dont take up much space and the cories are cute lol i dont know what kind they are though...maybe pepper

post a pic and I will tell you what they are. Also if they are paleatus (peppered) then 3 is fine.
also is your fry tank bare bottom?

yea, its bare bottom, im gettin a pic

corydoras do not do well in bare bottom tanks. At least in my experience. if you put a .5 inch layer of PFS it wont affect the fry and it will help the corydoras.

whats wrong with a bare bottom? heres a pic

Im actually not sure what is wrong with barebottom , but I know my cats seem more active and "happy" with sand. not sure those are peppered. With the lateral stripes and the black over the eyes , they look more like parallelus or maybe c133. Where id you get them.

I am sticking with my two ideas, plus they could be loxozonus. Let them chill for a day or so and color up and then we can tell exactly which of the three.

sounds like a plan lol thanks bro

Gapzero sure knows his cories! :)
But you're right, Mark. They are irresistibly cute!

I try. It is really hard cause not including aspidoras and scleromatyx, there are still 150 and still finding more. The meeting got me interested in cichlids though. So to supplement my Brichardi complex. I am getting some pundamilia nyererei, and a few other victorian cichlids from a wholesaler who buys my frogs. We are trading this time. I really like catfish, and they seem to go well in cichlid tanks. I am a nerd though, I would rather watch my tanks than TV or cuddle to aquarium light instead of a fire.

Yeah, I thought I was up on them about a year or two ago! That's like saying you are up on all the recent changes to cichlid scientific names, lol. Tomorrow it won't matter. :)

lol me too, i watch my tanks all day, im a loser lol

No joke, it is really amazing how much the names change. Most of my frogs names have been the same since the originally described. Except phyllodendrobates is now just dendrobates. I have some TFH from 2005, 2006, 2007, and alot of the names are different now. Plus remember of the 150+ corys some still are waiting taxonomic classification , and could turn out to be already described. Plus I am more interested in the catfish from drainage regions. Not so much the tributary fish. Also MZUNGU I am bringing you a cool cory to the auction. I got my Paleatus wild morph to breed, and now have 3 fry that are .75 inch. They have the perfect black bands across the back, which you cannot get at a LFS.

Thanks , it is the first time I got some of the wigglers to reach some sort of length. It is actually strange but the only way I could the wild ones to breed was to just put one female and one male in a ten gallon platy grow out tank.
