They used to always be out and about, but they they started having fun and after a week of this they just now hide together all day. Whats up with them? I only have 2...

    Corys are having nookie

    OK will do, I guess if im not going to put them in a breeder box then is doesn't really matter anyway. And other people have told me they lay of leaves and the glass anyway. Thanks for advice.

    Corys are having nookie

    Hi everyone. I am pretty sure my 2 sterbai corys are mating. They are normally so lazy and laid back but all of a sudden 1 is chasing/following the other one around, they are both hoovering off the ground together and 1 seems to be nudging the other ones belly. I really wanted to clean the...

    Hole in head???

    Id never heard of it till yesterday, I'm fairly new to the fish game and I only found out about it as I was looking up something wrong with one of my Cory. Similar thing, although I don't see any rubbing up against anything. He just was so small compared to the other 2 I got all at the same...

    Hahahaha 100% I dont understand people who don't like them. My snails and cory clean the tank more than my pleco but hes the whole reason I got the tank, love them. They get a bad name, like you said LFS and old wives tales about eating algae so people get them and are the disappointed or they...

    Pleco Appreciation Thread

    Hes sitting on the bug bite so no one else can get it....he hasn't swam away with one yet though...thats funny. I'm glad he doesn't swim off with it, only time I see him is when I'm feeding him haha he's such a user Hes not interested in my algae tabs, he's carnivorous so just swims past them

    Here is a picture of them both together from tonight's feeding time. Plec munching on bug bites and Cory on a garlic and mealworm tab...they know as soon as I lift lid up or jagger smells the garlic and he comes straight out when I put them in for dinner.

    Hi, great minds. Yes I altered my tank lights when I got him, so now it turns to blue lights around 7pm (I have fluval flex so I can program the lights with my phone to come on/off and change colour the same time every day) I dont clean my glass either, my snails do that

    Pleco Appreciation Thread

    I will try that tip, thank you. You wouldn't do that every night though would you?? I've heard they like to feed every 2-3 days. I put a spinach cube in a few days ago, and a mussel in a few days before that, but like I said not sure who eats them as I never see. (Thats on top of the usual...

    My Tiger Pleco has found a new fav spot, in a hole in the bog wood. I like that I can at least see where he is as his tail sticks out haha I just worry he's not getting enough food as I never see him eat, but I guess that's normal as he only really comes out at night. I'm thinking of getting...

    Amethyst tank

    Hi everyone. Here is my Amythest tank. I used to have fish many many moons ago, I also love crystals so decide to combine the two. I done some research on if it was safe and done the tests on the stones first, (PH and vinegar) all seems OK. I used a file to smooth out some of the more...
