  1. How to treat Ick in tank with Angel fish and Corey

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    My Angelfish has ick. She has 4 white spots on her head and a copper color on her body (mainly on her head). I also have 1 cory cat fish and a gold gourami fish in the tank who aren't doing well either. How can I treat them all in the same tank. I've read about turning the heat up, salt and...
  2. Stocking a 10 gallon tank - mollies, cory cats, and shrimp?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hello! I'm planning my first 10 gallon freshwater tank, and I've decided I'd like to try to keep a few mollies. I'm new to fishkeeping, so thank you in advance for your guidance! My plan so far: 2 short-finned mollies (both female) 3-4 cory cats (pygmy maybe, to lower the bioload?) 3 amano...

    Hi, all! I just started my first tank a few months back. It is a 10 gallon freshwater tank and currently has an Emerald Cory Cat, a shrimp, three plants, a medium piece of aquatic wood, three small moss balls, and two little houses!

  4. Stocking 10 Gallon Tank

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I would just like some insight as ive read and heard many different and opposite answers on this. Would 3 cory cats ( either bronze or peppered) and a dwarf gourami be fine in a 10 gallon tank? I'm using an Aqueon Quiet Flow 20 filter which says its suitable for 20-30 gallon tanks. My plan is...
  5. Juvenile Albino Cory internal bleeding death?

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    I woke up and found one of the juvenile Albino Corys laying on the bottom of 20 gallon long aquarium. Oddly with what looks like internal bleeding. They have all been so hardy and active, I don't get this. This is a cycled aquarium and the juveniles have been in there since they were fry. (15)...

    Both of my Cory cats have developed swim bladder and died within hours of developing it. Not sure what to do to keep the other fish from having the same issue. Help!
  7. Cory Cat Substrate

    Catfish
    Hi Everyone! I am thinking about getting some cory cats in my 10 gallon. Right now, I have a gravel substrate. One person on a different forum had the same gravel and said her cories were fine, and I really don't want to have to change my substrate, so what do you guys think? I have this...
  8. What to feed Julii cories

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I bought 5 Julii Corydoras on Saturday for my 55 gallon tank, and right now I have them in a temporary quarantine tank. My question is what to feed them. I bought these algae wafers, but soon after I put them into the tank they turn into a pile of mush and make the water all cloudy. They are...
  9. 10 gal Platy Tank

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I have a 10 gallon freshwater tropical tank, and was told that a few platties would be a good choice to put in there. When reading about them, I saw that the minimum tank suggestion was 20 gallons. Would this be an o.k. fish to put in a 10 gallon tank? If so, how many/what gender can I keep and...
  10. **HELP!** Glofish (danios) attacking cory cat

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Wondering what's wrong in my tank... I have a 15 gallon with 8 glofish, a female betta, and I recently added an albino cory cat (was planning to add a couple more when my LFS gets more in). However, the glofish are nipping at the cory's fins whenever it is resting. As long as it's moving...
