    I'm feeling discouraged about my pygmy cories.

    So last month I got 6 pygmy cories to add to my 20gal community tank (relevant threads) with platies, zebra danios, and cherry shrimp. I really loved seeing them school at first. But, I don't think they're doing very well. Of the 6 I bought, 2 were unhealthy and died after a day or two. Another...

    A Beginner's 20g Long Aquarium (Platys + Pygmy Corys)

    Hi, I'm a relatively new member here, but you might have seen me already. I first took an interest in fish tanks this fall, and for my birthday in October my dad's coworker gave me their used 20 gallon.

    Pygmy corydoras with inflated swim bladder

    Hi all I have a pygmy corydoras with an over-inflated swim bladder that it does not appear to be able to release the air from. The fish is still able to swim throughout the water column and feed itself, but it must be causing it discomfort. Can anyone suggest what I can do to help this fish...

    Feeding Facepalm

    My betta lives with 8 pygmy corys in a cycled 12 gallon tank.   The cory I got just a few days ago. They are all getting along fine with each other which is a relief.   Anyway, I am trying to work out what/how to feed them, without overfeeding my gluttonous betta, who is currently bumbling...
