I currently only have two, a peppered named Mac and an albino named Cheese. I will be getting a few more after I move in a week or so.

Mac and Cheese are the cutest little things, they are obviously best friends and always playing around. Plus they are so nice to each other, when I drop a pellet down for cheese he'll go eat it but he won't eat another until mac has also atleast had one! :) (and vise versa)

I'm pretty sure albinos are nacturnal so at night mac is usually "sleeping", resting in the log and cheese is non stop "protecting" him, like he always swims around him making sure none of the neon tetras bother him. They are toooo cute!

Cheese is my avatar but I'm on my phone right now so no pics of mac. But I'll post some soon :)
haha i love cheese! I cant wait to get my peppered's!

LOL NO. I meant BESIDES bettas,meaning bettas are my favorite lol

ooooo Albinos! They are sensitive to light remember!

I am getting 3 peppered's for the 10 gal, as they are smaller, and upgrading later.

What are your water params? I just want to make sure my cories can adapt :)

ph: 7.8
hardness: HARD
alkalinity: Very alkaline

my LFS' cories breed in these params, so i think i am ok

Oh, thanks! But I don't know why I wrote it like that, it doesn't make sense. xD

I was just kidding! :p Who loves any other fish besides Bettas? LOL I never knew that, you learn something everyday! I'll have to put in some extra plants then. Peppers are cute, great choice.
pH: 7.6
Hardness: Very Hard as well, Lebron's rays curled.
Alkalinity: IDK. I don't even know what that is, probably that KH, GH, crap I don't know. xD

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I have four albinos (Isis, Jade, Phoebe and Jazzy). They are the craziest little fish I've ever had! They like to poke at my betta. While I love that they are peaceful fish, they are sometimes too peaceful!! (Like at feeding time when my betta bullies them away from their food).
Love these crazy critters (:

What do y'all feed your corrys? I don't mean treats but like their main meal. :)

I use: http://m.petsmart.com/mt/www.petsmar...AvailInUS%2FNo

Does anyone else use these? My corys really like them!

Well, I'm sure Omega One Shrimp Pellets are good as well. It's a popular brand as well!
