New corys today
A while ago we brought a pepper Cory home from my office tank after noting that he, a single cory, was being ravaged by the serpae tetra . I took over its management, rehomed a huge Pleco, started adding plants, driftwood and have plans to replace super deep gravel with sand and different fish.
So, here is a shot of the pepper right after introduction and one a few weeks later, last night. Note the increased dorsal fin area and much better colouration. Nobody is nipping him now.
Then a couple of shots of the new pepper corys in their new home. I take a longish time acclimatizing fish, 18 hours this time. They are a lot smaller than I thought they would be. I guess they are tank raised and not wild caught.
