    Giant candy coi half moon male betta

    Hi! I just wanted to share some pictures of my first ever betta fish. He is called Aldebaran and I adopted him from a breeder in Indonesia and I did regret that choice cos I stressed a LOT during the shipping process that he might die. Alas he didn't although he arrived looking like a ghost...

    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...

    Postmortem for dwarf cory

    Just would like any thoughts/opinions on this. My tank has been firmly established now for 3 months, and this little guy was there from the start. A few days ago I found him dead early in the morning. Pictures were taken as soon as I noticed and pulled him out. The day before I had not...

    My Cory died after only 2 days and now I am worried that something is wrong with my tank!

    Hi! I have bought a cory and died no long after max 1/2 days. I never had issues with putting fishes in my tank since I had it (6 months). I am worried my tank might have some toxic algae because it has a electric Blu green algae that's never been there before! So I am worried for my other...

    Black sand for Corydoras and Plants?

    I'm currently setting up a low tech 55g aquarium and I'm having trouble with the substrate. To cut to the chase, I'm looking for a black sand that won't be harsh on the cories and other bottom dwellers, but will also be a practical substrate for plants without too much extra care. I've heard...

    Cory Floating upside down

    Hi, my Venezuelan Cory has been acting strange since yesterday, when I found it floating at the top of the tank getting pushed around slowly by the flow. I thought that it was dead so I went to pick it up with the net and it zoomed away. It did the same thing today and was swimming upside down...

    Frozen brine shrimp vs bloodworms

    I have ember tetras, cory's and a betta in my 105l tank. I was thinking about adding some frozen food to their diets. Is there any nutritional differences between the frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp? I'm mostly thinking about the frozen food for the betta to be honest, I was thinking...

    I Need Some Quick Reasurance!

    Hello everyone! I'm not particularly stressed, but I'm just curious and slightly worried about one of my albino female corydoras.

    Should I replace my lost corycat?

    I lost one of my three peppered corycats today. Since my once tiny school is now a pair, should I replace the lost cory? If so, will a new peppered cory school well with the other two (who I’ve had for about a year)? I also have 3 oto cats, 5 harlequin rasboras, and a honey Gourami in the tank...

    L181 pleco and Corydoras Venezuela Black

    I have bought 5 L181 pleco - naturally they are quarantined in a separate tank, but when they are ready to be moved out of quarantine I want to place them together with my Corydoras Venezuela Black. Is this a good combo? I don’t want to risk my corys lives or their fins being bitten of
