Technically, tomatoes are fruits so they've got a lot of sugar in them.

Three cories at a time sounds good to me. You could get a lot more of the really tiny types like pygmies (maybe 10 or 12) but I'd stick with about six of the larger ones. Pandas are on the smaller end of the larger cories, but they can be quite expensive. I highly recommend peppered cories as they're active and inexpensive. A group of six would be nice. I also agree that sand is nearly a must-have unless your gravel is very smooth. If it's too much of a pain to remove the gravel you have now, you might be able to just mix together the sand and gravel (so long as the gravel isn't very rough).

Oh okay thank you iamntbatman. Peppered? is that the salt and pepper i saw online or is there another peppered kind lol. So many different cories! Gotcha on the sand thing,can ya get a smaller bag of sand at lowes/home depot than 50lbs, i dont have room or a need for that much sand haha. Well some for my gerbils probably,but not that much! Ah well. Else if there is a kind at the fish store i can get? Im not sure what to look for in that regard. Im not sure if my gravel is rough or not,guess ill play with it and see. I also have those smooth clearish stones in there. You can see a pic of it on the betta photos thread if youd like. I am going to another fish store tomorrow over in NJ supposed to be like really big and very helpful lol. So we shall see. I hope i can find some kinda cories there! So far no luck around here,all i find is the big ones. There was one place that said panda cory,but this fish didnt look like a panda nor a cory. So i dunno. This place has like 5,000 gallons of freshwater fish and like 9,000 of saltwater i guess thats alot more than around here.

The paleatus are called peppered in some places and called salt and pepper in other places. It is the reason we refer to fish by their correct names. That way we are all talking about he same fish. Actually a paleatus will get quite large when you want to shoehorn 6 into a 10 gallon. The habrosus at about 1 1/4 inches adult size can easily fit into that tank with a population of 6 to 8. They make a very nice fish in tanks that are small or have other fish that are small. They look like this one in my endlers tank.



I like the looks of the hastatus too but they are shy and you won't see them as much.
