    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. Fishchannel.com 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?

    Okay well then I guess I may have to get the amanos, I just switched from sand as it was too deep and the plants weren't doing good. I don't want to put cories on gravel as I don't want them to injury their barbels. So i am left with nerite, amano, or otos.

    I will have to see what I can find.

    Yiiiiikes! I had absolutely no idea. And I had no idea Caribsea made their sand from glass. All I know is Black Beauty "sand" isn't even sand but iron slag. Yikes, yikes. I've had it for about . . . 4 months now? When does it stop releasing silicates?

    So far, it hasn't bothered the cory cats but definitely worried about the kuhlis. I'll look into switching to play sand. I just hope I can find a darker colored sand than the one I had before.

    Thank you so much, Olympia! I never would have figured out the problem without your help.

    As for the sorority, I suspect it is due to low light and no plants. I'm going to get some water sprite to float in there.

    Would the nerite snails go on plant leaves? Most of the brown algae is on ludwigia so small leaves.

    The tank should have readings of all zeros, I will have to check my water. The ghost shrimp are thriving, so that means I don't have any high readings.
