Hey there, I have a question about my new cories. I got 6 of these a couple of weeks ago, and I love them. Or I would, if I could see them.
For the first day they bimbled around the tank as expected, but on the second day I thought I'd killed them. I could see one, but no matter how hard I looked the others had disappeared. I assumed that something had gone wrong and that the corpses had been eaten, as I found now't with a gravel vac. I was quite miffed for a day or two, until i saw all 6 of them milling around at the back of the tank.
I only glimpsed them for a short while, before they nipped away, but they all seemed healthy. I still haven't worked out where they all go! I now see them ever now and again, usually in groups of 2-3.
Is this normal behavior, or am i doing something wrong? Water param's are all good, and (obviously) there are plenty of hiding places. I was under the impression that Axelrodi's were quite a confident type of cory, but i very rarely see mine.
They are in with some 6 Boesman's Rainbows, 2 Angels and some Black Ruby Barbs, none of which should be messing with them, nor have I seen any evidence to indicate that this is so.
So what's up?[/list]
