Hey, I got a question. What's a sign of Cory cats mating? My cories been acting weird. I see 2 male chase a female and ended up flipping her over but im not sure if they're mating. After wrapping her, i see her kind of exhausted for a little bit. After that, she started rubbing her belly onto the glass of the fish tank.




Scratch the question...
Cories did mate.

Congrats! Make sure you keep an eye out for eggs on the glass. I wish mine would mate, but I will have to get another male to do so lol

To answer a question i noticed earlier, cories are diurnal. I forget the exact definition but i think it just means they are more active around dusk, even though they are active during the day too. to Google.

yup i was off. diurnal means active in the daytime. but cories are more active in the.evening

Your cories should be in groups of 3+ of each species. Having 2 cories that are different species isn't recommend. They will be fine, but a bit lonely. My 4 Peppered Cories are very active with each other and enjoy their own species company.

Or like mine active all day and night. Chilling only when it's feeding time or reserving energy for three day straight relay races they always do.

Oh yes I know! I have delayed buying a few more because I am moving this spring and it would be much easier moving a smaller amount of fish. I will definitely buy more as soon as I'm moved though! :)

I just brought home 4 Pygmy cories for my 5.5 gallon tank. They are so small! I am getting 2-4 more in a couple months or so. I'd post pics later! I just love them so much.

I guess this is the thread to post cory cat questions. :)

I just got 4 false bandit corys (melini). I love the way they just bumble around the tank. And they are not intimidated at all by my betta, even when he tries to schmooze in on their food. Just adorable!

Anyways, my question. How much of a frozen bloodworm cube should I give my four? They got some today when my betta did, but I'm not sure if I gave them enough.

Another one- do they eat algae or biofilm? I've noticed that they sometimes go up and down my plants like my otos do. Are they actually eating, or just looking for food?
