Sooo, I went to my LFS yesterday and got 6 peppered cories. They didn't have any C.Sodalis and I wasn't really expecting them too. Apparently they are hard to come by. Who knew? (well not me at least). I think these guys are going to do waaaay better now that this tank is fully planted with black substrate and a Nitrate reading of 0-5ppm. When my tank was not planted nitrate was 20-40ppm and I had a hard time keeping them. They were quite listless and slowly died off over about 2 months time except for my 1 lone survivor. This morning all new cories were accounted for and they were having a blast digging through the gravel. I'm glad my 1 survivor has some buddies now, even if I couldn't get the same breed. I'm confident that these cuties will be around for quite some time I sat in front of the tank for 2 hours just watching them after acclimating them last night. Quite entertaining, to say the least. What a difference a planted tank with natural substrate makes! Thank you, everyone!
