yipee! i got my cories yesterday! they were all out of emeralds, pepperds and julis so i bought 3 albinos. I picked the healthiest bunch, acclimated them over the course of one hour, and released them into the tank! They are SUPER ACTIVE and have already cleaned up most of my sand! i love them already! turns out the petstore had them in harder water then mine with a higher ph, so i think im good to go!

They are under an inch in size, just babies. i took my betta out while i acclimated and released him, and when i put him back in he wasnt too happy.....he chased them and nipped them, but today he seems like hes given up on them. i will keep i close eye though :)


Piics soon! BTW they are very active during the day for albinos!

Yay, congrats! I love my 2 Peppered Cories. So much, I am getting 2 more since they need to be in schools. I love Cories so much. One of my favorite freshwater fish.

ok, we got a problem. My one cory keeps burying himself under the sand for long periods of times, while my other one is super active and eating. The third one has stayed in the same place overnight but wheni touch both with the net, they get all hyper and happy for about 30 mins, then repeat the cycle. My ammonia is at zero, ph is stable, i have been feeding them...

I am doing a water change today though.
Any ideas? I really dont want to lose them.! I will put an algae wafer in there and see if it perks them up.

Thank you!

ok threw in an alage wafer an hour and a half ago, and those little pigs are as active and healthy looking as they can be! They are all on the wafer, sprinting around the tank and eating alage off my plants. Probably were just a lttle hungry! My tank is almost spotless!
