  1. How many fish, too many cores, high pH, and a misguided purchase

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Today is my first day as a member and I while I'm sure my questions are not new, I wasn't sure the best way to find answers. I've spent a few hours trying to navigate around and have more knowledge than when I started, but still not quite what I need. 1. I think I have too many fish. It was...
  2. Cories in a Guppy Tank?

    I have a 10 gallon with 5 adult guppies and an unknown number of fry. I was wondering if I had room for some cories in there with them? If so, how many and what kind? (I know there are different types of cory but I am not familiar with cories.) And if cories are a no go is there any other kind...
  3. Are my Emerald Cories fighting?

    I haven't seen my Emerald Green Cories act like this before. They do a lot of swimming together and acting chummy...but today two of them acted rather aggressive. Or so it looked. They silted up my tank pretty bad too, and they did this for hours. Are they fighting? Breeding maybe? I was told...

  5. Cory doras and Ghost shrimp?

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Are these two comparable? Their both bottom dwellers, i know, but will the shrimp harm the corys, and will the corys nip the ghosties? Im just wondering! Cory cats are just so cute!
  6. Medication of Scaleless Fish + Invertebrates

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    I'm surprised that we don't have a topic for this yet. Anyone here please post with experiences, what does and doesn't work. I realized that I want to know my options if ever my cories get sick. Invertebrates include crabs, crayfish, shrimp, snails, and clams. Scaleless fish include, but are...
  7. Julii and False Julii Cories Lethargic?

    Hey, I have 4 cories. I was reading the profiles, and it seems that two are Julii (dots on side), and two are Trilineatus (Lines on sides). They are in a 10 gallon tank. Low hardness, mid-low pH. Recently, they have been acting very lethargic. They still eat, and sit upright, but do not swim a...
