LoL but I read up on them before I got them soo I knew what I was getting myself into but thanks for the thoughts on it.
I don't know how many all is but I would be care with that so they don't over eat on them. LoL mine LOVE snails and will eat about as many as I will put in there with them. So I usually only put enough for each to have two or so.
Thanks for that tidbit of info, its good to know. So note to self; dont put a bunch of snails in with DPs or they shall gorge themselves on them.
As for the cories and their temp differences, I can so see that as an issue. Didnt think about parameters being an issue, I imagined it was a behavioral thing! Awesome, thanks for pointing that out! Although both my tanks (cories and betta) are kept at a steady 79-80F, I am still re-homing my albino cories with my bff, as I dont want my tank to be overstocked.
I hope my betta has no issues with my cherry barbs... as 4 of my 9 are males and they have a beautiful deep red coloring since they are surrounded by females. I dont think the betta will do too bad, considering he was fine with a school of bright neon tetras. And I am not worried about the fish and their movements, as 1-most all the fish he will be with are slower swimmers, and 2-he currently happily deals with 10 annoyingly fast loaches. LOL
Thanks everyone for all their info, it has been a very enlightening thread for me!!!
