Wink The Crazy Cory Catfish Thread!

Share pictures videos and everything else about you cories!

I am getting 3 peppered cories soon, and i am very excited, since i just switched my gravel to sand!

I have hard, alkaline water with a ph of 7.8, but my LFS breeds cories in these conditions :) Anybody else successfully keep them in these conditions?


From Albino's to Bronze, And Emerald to Pygmy! Dont forget Peppered's and black too!
Share your pics! I will get mine in a couple of weeks!





START SHARING NOW!

These are my three. Sorry for the dirty water but the only time I can get to see them is at night or during cleanings. The biggest one is about a year old and over 2 inches long. The littlest has a crook in her tail. All are peppered. My ph is off the charts high, even with a big piece of mopani in the tank.

all I know is ph is 8 or over. I don't know how to test for alkaline/acidity.

I have some crazy corys! :) lol
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 :)
