Hi there

I have 7 corydoras, 1 betta and a rabbit snail that were in a 75 litre tank. Unfortunately it sprung a leak today and I have had to put them in a spare tank which is only 35 litres, I know it is too small. I have transferred some of the substrate, a few decs and the two filters from the old tank so there won't be any cycling issues.

I am wondering if they will be okay in there for a few weeks, with frequent water changes, until I can buy a new tank.

Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks

I don't see why not!? Cory's are not very big, you have a group, you are maintaining water quality and the have the necessary bacteria. Just try to replace the tank as soon as you can.
Good luck.

I'm a bit scared of doing that, plus I rather manhandled the tank in my haste to stop my carpet from getting soaked further and get my fish safely rehoused. At first I thought it was just a misdirected spray bar and just made an adjustment and topped up the tank which had lost 15 litres of water. As the day went on I realised there was still a problem and went into panic mode. I'll see if I can enlist my LFD's help as I'm an oldish lady who lives alone.
