  1. 15 Gallon Tank - One Lonely Pygmy Cory, Help?!

    I originally started off with 6 pygmy cory. All living in a 3 gallon tank until one by one they began to die off. Not wanting to lose anymore, I removed them from the tank then gave it a good clean then set it up as a quarantine/hospital tank. Instead of having them swim around the empty tank, I...
  2. Advice for cycling a 10 gallon tank?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I recently ordered a brand new 10 gallon tank online so I could move my two Endler Guppies and six Pygmy Cory out of their 3 gallon home.

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Over the weekend, I moved my pygmy cories into my 8 gallon bowfront. They were in my 20 long but it didnt seem like they were able to find each other and they just moped in corners. I dont think they were getting enough food either as my danios are voracious :lol: The tank is planted with a...
