    I don't know which on I want is the problem. The plagues I wouldn't mind them giving birth, as the other fish should eat them, which will be good food. Do any of those eat or nibble on hair algae as well?

    I could also do a bigger school of neon tetras or rummynoses.

    Hey how many female platies do you think will be fine in my 15 gallon? I want some more fish to look at, I'm not sure if I want cherry barbs or platies though, input?

    Actually I haven't been out that way.
    South to Peterborough or Belleville or west to Toronto. Napanee, Ottawa and Kingston are places I haven't really gone shopping.

    I've heard conflicting things, too. says it's exclusive to dwarf gourami. I've seen some sites caution against buying honey gourami that have been housed with dwarf gourami as honies can pick it up. I thought it might be a virus specific to gourami, but then I found an article in PFK that talked about a scientific study in which Murray Cod became infected with the virus after sharing the same water with dwarf gourami (do a search for dwarf gourami virus; it's the first article). Seriously Fish also claims that it is transferable across species but doesn't provide a source. So to be honest, I don't really think anyone knows for certain. I just know that I don't want it in my tank, so I'm going to stay away from dwarf gourami.

    Thanks for your message, Olympia! Things just got massively busy, and back pain has been keeping me away from the computer. :( Hopefully I'm back now, though!

    Yes, my cories have actually been very active, way more active than I've ever seen them. They're out in the day now climbing all over the driftwood and fake decor. And the honey gouramis nibble at the algae too.

    Thanks again for all your help. :)

    So far, the substrate doesn't seem to be bothering the cories or kuhlis so I feel okay leaving it while I look around.

    Alright thanks for the help! Once I get more money I will order some

    You said not to acclimate them until the second day of receiving them. How would i do that with the small amount of water shipped?
