Hello guys :-D
Soo I am in the process of completing my 55gal long tank. The water temp is going to be stable at 76-77F, and I plan to have one or two Bolivian Rams, if they pair.
1-2 Siamese Algae Eating Sharks
8 Red Eyed Tetras
8 Silvertip Tetras
20 Neon Tetras
and I would like to add maybe 10 Cordoras..
I already have the neons and they are thriving. The water parameters are soft and pH is 7.1 or so, I will be adding driftwood soon so I expect that to lower. My tank is completely cycled and has several plants and I will be making it pretty dense once I get my driftwood and the plants I intend to add. Lots of hiding spots already though. My substrate is a dark brown and I am getting water sprite and amazon frogbit soon, so floating plants will be present.
I want to know if this sounds suitable for Corydoras, and also if I can mix the varieties? I would like 2-3 albinos, pandas, bandits, etc. for an amount of maybe 10 or more corys...
Corys are fine. I would try for a minimum of three of each species, though 4-5 is "better" for some. But with more corys of whatever species, they will be settled. The more the merrier, and you have the space.
A caution on the Siamese Algae Eater. If you really like this as a fish, I would stay with just one. A shoaling fish, it should have a group of 5-6 and the species will form a hierarchy within the group. With just 2 or 3, this may result in one dominant fish and the other hounded to death. This fish grows to 6 inches so it is large. It is also often confused with the False SAE and the Flying Fox; more info in the profiles.
Oh ok, thanks =) I will just get 4 of any of the corydoras varieties I like. I wasn't sure about the space but I guess my tank isn't that heavily stocked, or won't be anyways.
I will just get one SAE then, and I will try and make sure it is the right kind lol. They for sure weren't the Chinese once though because they had the stripe and not the dots that I see on the CAE profile.
I won't get him then. He was super cute but if you feel that way then I'm not that attached to the whole idea, and I really want this tank to work out well.
Thanks a lot =)
