Yeah, I read about cories and salt... Hmm if you were me, what would you get?
Think between guppies, platies and danios... I might get cories only if I find them in stock and the gravel and if they aren't expensive.. Otherwise I can always get them later... I'm keen on the platies right now lol! But my mood keeps changing X(

Morning all.... If guppies can handle salt that's an added bonus. I had the weirdest dream last night where I had some guppies and they bred, but I didn't know where and by the time I found the baby it was a foot long O-o

I had a dream that I moved into an apartment and was so happy because it had a whole bunch of power outlets and lot of space to put fish tanks. ^_^ Only problem was I had to share the apartment with my brother and his friend.

Fighter - If I was in your place, I would wait to get cories because I would have to spend a lot of extra money to get them new gravel plus the little buggers are expensive. Although I think the guppies are flashy, I would be worried that my Amazonian girls would bite their tails off. I would feel bad for the one lonely danio and really want to get him tankmates so I would hope that getting him 7 friends would keep them entertained amongst themselves and not nip my girls. I would also hope my girls left the danios alone. But ultimately, I think I would go with platies because they come in a wide range of colors and are big and very hardy. I may get some fry but my girls can have them so my population never gets out of control.

And then, five minutes after making this decision, I would change my mind all over again.

Sorry lol! I saw some MM platies at the lfs today, and they are CHEAP! Less than a dollar for 3 (30rs) so I think I might get them.. I hope I don't change my mind either lol! Just realised danios are kinda expensive too but nowhere as compared to cories..
