    Corys sitting at bottom of tank

    I've just recently got back into fish, and run into an old problem I've always had from my 20 gal to my 40 gal breeder. Tank has been up and cycled for years, just haven't been replacing fish until it got to the lone cory. I currently have a 20 gallon with 6 albino corys, 5 guppies, and a bamboo...

    Refurbished 40ish gallon dirted tank/aquascape

    Hi! I've been inactive for a while and I've just gotten back into the hobby because my family got a hand me down tank from my cousins. Today we just did the dirt, substrate, hardscape, and first plants while also adding some bacteria bombs. We're planning to add more plants to fill in the tank...

    Hi, I have a 37 gallon planted aquarium that has so many plants. I recently have got an explosion of trumpet snails in the tank. I hardly even put food or nutrients into the water and do 2 week 50% changes on the tank due to there only being 4 Cory’s and 1 bristlenos. I guess I’m indifferent...

    This is one of my 3 orange Venezuelan cory catfish. This cory is brand new to life and lives in my new community tank. He is happily enjoying himself in a 130L (35 gallon) tank with his trio and a pair of Kribs. He loves bath on the rocks and hide in a hole in the tree.

    Help with one sick corydora

    Hi. I have 6 orange Venezuelan corydoras. 5 of them are doing really good. They look healthy, eat amazing, are super active and are always shoaling (and display some breeding behaviour too). Then I have this one that is smaller and tends to be on her own. She is eating but looks sick. She is...

    OK, so I'm new at fishkeeping. And my corycats got it on because I found eggs in the tank!!! I'd love to have babies catfish but I don't think I'm ready yet. I think I'm gonna let natural selection work it's way and leave them in the tank as is, but if they do hatch I really need help. I've got...

I also have 5 peppered Cory catfish, 2 ghost shrimp, and 2 nerite snails. They are all super happy and comfortable...

    Upgrading to 112l

    Hi all I currently have a 20l tank which I'm going to upgrade to 112l as soon as the new tank arrives. At the moment I only have 3 corys, I didn't realise until I sought advice on here that I had overstocked my tank as I also had 3 ADF's and some snails, but have lost them all. 😥 Plans are to...

    Hi there!

    Both my husband and I have started our new hobby of fishkeeping. I grew up around fish tanks so I have basic knowledge but wanted to join a community of more experienced fishkeepers who can help me to identify issues and give information to resolve those issues. I am a huge animal lover of all...

    How to help a fish recover from jumping out of the tank?

    Last night, on New Years Eve, my filter of a few years stopped working. It was too late to get a new filter as most things closed down by then. I did a partial water change and hoped for the best. When I woke up at 2 am, the two fish inhabiting the tank, two 4 year old albino corydora catfish...

    One of my mollies has been staying at the surface and seems to be gasping

    I just got 4 new mollies and 2 cory catfish today and after a few hour this one molly has been staying at the surface for the last 10 minutes. It wont ever leave the surface for any reason and it is the only fish in the tank doing this.I checked the water parameters before i added the fish

    Breeding Pygmy Corydoras

    Hello all! I've been keeping pygmy corydoras for a few years because they are my favorite fish. I'd really like to see them reproduce but they don't seem to be doing so on their own. So what I'll do here is go through some of the steps I've been taking to get them to spawn and hopefully one of...

    Does my Cory have popeye?

    Yesterday I noticed that my cory’s eye looked bigger than the rest of my catfish. Is this popeye? If so, how could I treat it? I’ve been doing ~20% water changes every 1 to 1.5 weeks for my 36 gallon bowfront tank. Nitrites are at 0. Ammonia <0.25ppm. Nitrates <5.0ppm.

    Normal behaviour?

    We bought three Green cories today, and the fish store employee was rather rough with handling them. And had lots of dead fish in their displays. I saw the cute little cories looking all sad in their overcrowded tank and couldn't resist bringing them home. It's a gamble, I know, but had to...

    Is My Cory Ok?

    Hi, 2 days ago I got some peppered corydoras - one of them died before I even got to drop acclimate them. The other two are doing well in the tank. I called pets at home and they said I could come get a new cory. I’ve just brought him home today and noticed his fins are a bit ‘teared’ ? Not sure...

    Is this corydora healthy?

    I have a sole survivor after disease wiped out my group. I'm not sure what it is that they had, I've asked around on different sites and got varying answers, internal parasites, bacterial infection, gill flukes, and even fish TB. I wanted to ask on here if he looks healthy.

    Not an emergency, just looking for anything more expert members might notice

    Woke up to one of my female cories dead at the bottom of the tank. As the pictures might show she had the bent spine that seems common on these when overbred/inbreeding, but she was always pretty active and healthy looking, up to last night on my last glance at the tank all the fish were acting...
