    I recently found a roughly 20 gallon tank for a great price on Facebook Marketplace, so now I am trying to figure out what to put in it. I have a small shoal of panda corys (currently 4 but I’ll be getting 6 total) and that’s all. Any tips? Also, I normally prefer planted tanks, but any tips on...

    Hi, New here. I've kept small freshwater aquariums for years but have recently been battling problems with algae and disease. I have a 30-gallon tank with three platys, three cherry barbs, three black skirt tetras and two emerald catfish. In the last couple weeks, two of my tetras (2+ yrs old)...

    My corys have got red base on the fins at the moment which has come from my tetras which i can't get rid of. My cory got a cut the other week and now has caught it from the water. It seems to have spread to my other large corys. I have never used aquarium salt but just ordered some to hopefully...

    When I first started keeping fish, corys were my first fish. I had bronze corys first, then, later, peppered corys. Since I didn't really know what I was doing back then, the bronzies weren't a huge success, although it's amazing they lived as long as they did considering how I treated them. The...

    I have a 10th gal tank in which I will be putting 3 or 4 platties in, along with 3 corys. I am looking for a smaller type of cory that will do well in these conditions, the tank will be fully cycles, and I want the corys to eat leftover food and debris off the bottom although I will be feeding...

    I have had a couple of 'cory disasters' recently and this has upset things in my tank quite a lot. Corys are one of my favorite fish, and back before I joined this forum I kept them very successfully for some years, especially remarkable since I didn't really know what I was doing! However, more...

    A couple of my corys have a little bit of fin rot and I want to stop it from getting worse as soon ASAP. I've used Myxazin before to treat fin rot, but I've always used a half dose because the first time I tried the full dose my tetras seemed to get really stressed out, and I've never used it...

    Ok, so to start off - corydoras are absolutely my all-time favorite fish. I have a 45 gallon (pH 6.6, ammonia and nitrites 0, keep nitrates at 5ppm, GH 4, KH 2; temp is 78). It's moderately planted with mostly South American species and also two crypts and java moss. In it I have a school of 14...

    what are your suggestions about the best treatments for gill flukes? it has to be safe for corys. i'm sick at the moment myself :( so i probably wont be able to get anything for a few days anyway, i just hope the fish are alright until then.

    I have had a community tank setup before with danios, cherry barbs, and corys... so I know that they would do fine together. I'm looking for a "centerpiece" fish though and really think a betta would be awesome. A male betta specifically. Here is my idea... a male betta, a school of...
