I never had Peppered Cories before, just the Julii, bronze and albino ones untill just recently my local petstore got in a shipment of Peppered Cories. I bought 2 of them and named them "Oakley" & "Maple". My other 2 are Julii Cories named "Pepper" & "Paprika" My Peppers are so cute and I love their color patterns. Mine are in super hard alkaline water and do just fine. I agree with the pygmy ones being too delicate, someone told me the same thing when I was thinking of getting some pygmy Cories.

Woo-hoo!!!!

Just switched the gravel to sand, and put Honeycomb in! He tasted it once, decided it wasnt good and is swimming and exploring! Pictures to come!

I will get the 3 peppereds in a month or so when the tank stabilizes.

this sand, the super naturals said it would bring down my ph to a neutral, and when i tested it, it did go down slightly, to about 7.4-7.8 my harndess seemed to get less too...

my tank is cycled, it has been set-up for 2 yrs, but i am prepared if changing the substrate will damage my bacteria, thus the mini-cycle, i am prepared for.
