Is there a Petland near you? My Petland ALWAYS seems to have corys swimming around.

There is, but I don't think I'll trust any petLand ever again. I got two betta from them in the worst condition I've ever seen. managed to save them, but they treat their fish like &*%* and I havent heard good things about others in my province. I'm in Alberta.

Sorry to hear that! I'm in BC and the petland near me has a manager in the aquatics department who really knows her stuff and cares for the animals, so I guess I just lucked out in my area.

Yes but then the lil fish would need to be quarantined for a time in another tank. The Petland near me has them but I do not trust that they will not bring home a nasty bug and destroy my current pets. I may be overly careful right now but I would choose the Big Als on 32nd, they have them too and much less likely have a problem. A pet store is just like hospital for humans... it is where the diseases live. Some stores have better reps than others in my hood. Rant off.

Possibly. I think I might luck out with come cories in PetSmart in Calgary, just don't know if they'll have panda cories or not. OMGOSH I could call them and ask!


Anyone know if panda cories would survive an 8 hour trip? And if I should introduce tehm first? Or the girls first?

And what do they eat and how do I stop the girls from eating it??

I could qt them in the 10g under the table, though if I need individual qt's for each...that might be a problem. Only have like...four qt tanks, maybe five if sylvannas is accepted into the sorority. And I was looking and it said cories should be kept in groups of six.

Lol I quarantine everything anyways, so I don't mind petstores, provided the staff are knowledgeable and appear to genuinely CARE about the animals. The quarantine fanaticism is because I worked as a Vet assistant for a number of years and am now at the tail end of a nursing degree... I know AAAALL about nasty diseases lol. (And just because it came from a breeder doesn't mean it's disease free, just a higher likelihood that it is)

Then maybe I ought to get the cories at a later date...besides, I'll already be full of fish and fish stuff. And I don't want to introduce a bug to the whole tank D=

Oh dear, I've no idea what wattage of heater to get for a 29g. Is a 50watt adjustable too small?
