So far so good in the sorority. I added in my fifth girl yesterday and she settled right in so I think I have a full house of girls. The cories are in there now too as of this morning. So far so good there, too. They're just scuttling around leaving new finprints. They're happy to be in a big 10g instead of their tiny 2.5g quarantine tank. I think I may get 2 more cories. They're so darn small I keep losing them. How's Quicksilver doing with his cories?

Fine, he refuses to quit eating though... I think I'll have to use epsom salt. He started tailbiting.

Maybe you could put the cories in the new 10g when you get it and divide Quicksilver's. Otherwise he'll eat himself into oblivion. Silly guy. Sorry about the tailbiting. Hopefully he'll get over that. Is it very bad?

Not really. I was thinking that he will have to stay and the cories moved. I might use sand in my next 10g.

Then you can have little finprints too. Be sure to rinse the sand really thoroughly before putting it in the tank. It might take hours to get the water to run clear, though. It took me all morning to rinse one bag of sand.

I don't understand -- how are you supposed to clean sand?

Put it in a bucket and run hose water into it until the bucket is full, then dump the water out. Kind of squish the sand around every now and then. Repeat until the water you're dumping out runs clear or close to clear. Otherwise, the sand will cloud up your tank like crazy.

My silly sorority won't let my cories eat. They're swarming all over the place, even carrying the wafers around in their mouths. They're fighting over the food, too, which isn't good, since they WERE getting along. And technically, it's lights out too (ie, tank light was turned off but a room light is still on). :( If I can't figure out how to feed my cories when they're in the sorority, I'll have to return them because I don't have a tank large enough for them to be happy in except the 10g. I mean, they're teeny guys and I think they could live fine in a small tank size-wise but they need more space to roam to be happy.

Hehe, no, although the cories are small enough my bettas probably could eat THEM if they wanted.
