    Stocking 57L

    Hi I am new to the hobby and have just purchased a 57L tank. I’m hoping to gradually build to something like: 6 panda corys 4 or 5 guppies 2 or 3 amano shrimp Maybe 1 nerite snail Probably sand substrate. Does that sound reasonable and any tips on plants? Cheers.

    Is swim bladder medication safe for corys?

    Hi, One of my cory catfish has swim bladder disease, so I just went out and bought a medication However, it says that it can't be used for scaleless fish. I know corys have "plates" instead of scales, so would it still be safe to use? Thanks very much, any help would be appreciated
