    Hey Oldfishlady, if a spawn is bottom dewelling and resulting in the spawn growing without ventrals will this affect the fishy will he grow them eventually or not? i have a guy in sydney who i fell in love with one of his ventraless boys hes selling for $2.00 (bargin for his pretty metalic purple) will there be issues if i bred him with fry missing their ventrals?

    How mature is the tank and how big are the corydoras....they may be fine in 8gal for awhile if they are immature or sub-adults-and if the tank is mature/stable...but 5 corydoras even in a 10g is pushing it IMO...these guys get over 2inch when mature...live active plant growth can help water quality to a degree-but I would still make at least 50% weekly water only changes and watch them closely for stress...a 20g would be ideal.....these are really cool fish and usually really active too...on the move constantly and watch for barbel erosion and/or infection-this can be caused by too rough substrate and/or high nitrate that even in NPT with overstocking can happen....

    It will be fine for the Betta but not the cory cats...not enough space for them and they would most likely get stressed and stressed fish....get sick......even with all the plants that volume of water is just not enough to support them long term...

    Hello OFL.
    I have a natural planted tank (with the soil method! :) ) Its like 90% planted. Its heated and filtered. Will the tank be ok with 1 betta and 5 spotted corys?
