9 gallon False Julii tank
So I got some False Juliis in my 9 gallon now. They look so big compared to my pandas. Anywho,was wondering if you think I can put anything else in there? Or is that max lol. I was looking at guppies,but read alot people have them drop like flies (kinda like my bettas!),so that makes me wary. Any other somewhat colorful fish I could have in there? My dad likes the glofish,but eh I dont. Not natural I tell ya!! We are going to a large aquarium superstore so maybe they will have some thing that we like. :-D
i would not recommend adding anymore fish to this tank you are already over stocked with the cory cats....they from what i have read about the false juliis is they require at least a 30 gallon....if you like to cory cats you can get some albinos instead....they dont get more than an inch
also, just to add to my last post....the panda corys prefer much cooler water temps then the other corys andother tropical fish
Oh,that stinks. I read so many different sites and each have different tank sizes for them. I do have Panda Corys in a 12 gallon with some Pygmys and Pencilfish. Those guys seem to like the same temp. range.
Panda corys are cooler water fish than some other species, as Molliefan09 mentions; they come from the Rio Pachitea, Huanaco and Rio Ucayali system in Peru, rivers fed by melting snow in the Andes and thus a bit cooler (low 70's F) than down in the Amazonian forest. However, they do quite well (at least for me) in my 90g which is 78F. But I would never put them higher; I had a group in another tank and the heater failed overnight; temp got to mid-80's and all the pandas were gone. Corydoras pygmaeus is very similar; they occur in the Rio Madeira system, and 79F is the limit for their health. I have both these corys and the pencilfish species (Nannobrycon eques) you have in my 90g at 78 and they're fine.
Oh okay. Good to know. My 12 gallon is sitting at 74 I believe.
