Belatedly.....I think having a shoal of Corys would be fabulous and I'm going to start researching them. For whatever reason I thought it would create a big bioload footprint.
I think my fish Maki would be cool with them, even tho he pestered an Apple snail like a yappy little dog so I rehomed the snail. I understand how the end of the snail's wiggly antenna would be so enticing, what I don't understand is when the fish went after it he sucked the whole antenna in like a long piece of spaghetti. Initially it looked like he bit it off! So where in his body did he fit such a long antenna?! It's kind of an xfile
Say I have a favor to ask and maybe this should be a new post but there's no forum for "fish care services. I believe you're in NYC. correct?
Here's the deal - today we decided to get out of Dodge for at least a week beginning on Wednesday the 7th. However due to my itchy feet we might end up in Canada for another few days.
I haven't figured out what to do about water changes. My neighbor can feed the fish, but she's elderly and I'm not putting WC on her.
If you're interested, I'd be happy to pay you to stop by for a couple of water changes. I'd be most appreciative because I perused CL adds under pet services and only one add mentioned fish care. We're across the street from Morningside Park if that makes a difference.
DM me if it's workable.
I suppose I could make a post directed to NYC members. Not sure what other ppl do re: fish care if they plan to be away for a couple weeks.
Our fishy is sensitive to his environment so I don't want to worry about him bugging out if his water isn't pristine He'll protest in scary ways.
