Cories

What do I need to keep my cories from dying? Longest I had them was a month.

My peppers did just fine even the one i was like "yep, your going to die" pulled through just fine. Good luck! Keep them in groups of 3 or more prefably six sorry i couldnt have been more help.

It is 29 gallons filled with sand, and fake plants. Ammonia is normal so is everything else. The occupants are 4 female betta's and a male who is in a breeders trap

I am getting them tomorrow. I lost my last shoal from an ammonia spike. I am afraid that they will die on me again

They will if your tank isn't cycled, these are delicate fish. A cycled tank should not have ammonia issues.
