Forgot to add, from Peru would indicate very soft water, slightly acidic. Being wild caught this is important. I am aware of no hard water systems in Peru. Some have slightly basic pH, low 7's, but still hardness is <1-2 dGH. But the vast majority are acidic.

Thanks Byron, for the information. These guys have been breed and tanked raised by the seller. Which in this case like blue rams which are tank raised, would I want to match the parameters as closely as I can from which they where raised in?

Not sure as I've never come across this with corys. My thinking would be that they will do best in soft slightly acidic water. We're not dealing with more robust fish like cichlids here, but corys. Can you ascertain the parameters they were spawned/raised in?

Hey Byron, got a reply back from the seller the female is wild caught and the males are tank raised. He was able to tell me that his ph was around 7, he did not know his gh. My water here is on the soft side, not very soft like yours, but still is soft.

Just a quick update, did get the guys that I posted earlier. Should be getting them sometime this week. First time using aquabid and having fish shipped so makes me slightly nervous. But the seller was doing free shipping with live arrival guarentee, so I figured did not have much to lose on that deal.

Thanks Gina, I know looked at the feedback and should be nothing to worry about. I think it is just that it is the first time having fish shipped. Better though than me trying to ship fish the first time. One of the reasons with all the fry have right now want to stay local when it comes time to rehome them.

Im planning on buying a few fish off aquabid in the next month or so. It will be my first time buying fish online so Im a little nervous about it as well. Keep us updated on how it goes.. it may ease my mind a little bit. :)
