  1. So sorry! I lost my first betta to dropsy as well. Hope you get some rest today, you tried your best ❤️ How are the cory’s doing?
  2. Love the aquariums! Cory’s are my Fav fish! Maybe some day I’ll start a shrimp tank too! What do you feed the cory’s? I found that when my shoal wouldn’t eat, just switching their food to a different brand of sinking wafer was enough to get them back on track! They just wanted a different flavor I guess 🥰🍔
  3. My Cory likes to hold onto her eggs until she is swimming by the white sand in the tank and then… ‘Wweeeee!’ She tosses them…never to be seen again. I’ve tried a spawning mop, no luck there. It’s like she saw me collet the ones she stuck to the under side of a leaf and was like ‘No more eggs for you!’ 🤦🏼‍♀️🤪
  4. @Fish Folk Thank you! I love these ideas! That’s really what I had in mind all along, (more neon’s and a couple more cory’s) but my family thinks I’m nuts and told me not to buy any more fish or plants 😅 Little do they know I have big plans for their bedrooms when they head off to college, I’m hooked 🤣 I’ve been all over water changes! At least once a week ~20-30%, with some touch up extra gravel vacs once in a while if things look grimy (why did I pick white sand?!). And water parameters have been pretty solid all along, except an ammonia spike after I added the planting substrate etc. a little while ago. It’s so difficult to find the black(/dalmatian?) Molly’s if they are above the current level of the plants, so I’m definitely planning on putting in some tall grass type plants along the back wall!
  5. Thanks for all the info! I started the tank in the beginning of Jan. (After bleach/water scrub and a million rinses and dry out periods because I don’t know what it had been through before finding it at Goodwill) and added the original 3 toddler Molly’s and 1 grown Cory in Feb. after cycling the water empty with food/used substrate for a month. Then, the 5 new Cory’s survived quarantine and were added, and those 3 neon tetra were what was left of a school of 9 that I quarantined and medicated with the suggested med trio. After most of the tetras passed in quarantine, I am honestly nervous to try them again, as these 3 ‘seem’ to be getting along happily.
  6. Hello friends! New to the hobby but thriving and loving it (mostly due to the amazing advice and teaching from Aquarium CoOp!! 🥰) I currently have a 29 gallon, long, acrylic aquarium that I found at GoodWill a few months back for $9.99! In this am keeping: 3 black Molly’s (all female, spawned from 3 original Molly’s in my daughters tank) 3 fairly small neon tetras (LFS) 6 Cory’s (3 Julii and 3 Panda that all stick together, (LFS) 1 Nerite snail Many, many...rams horn snails. Right half of tank is sand substrate with large rocks and drift wood, planted with Java fern, and a couple different types of anubias’s. Left half of the tank has Fluval planting type substrate and is planted with more anubias’s, Cryptocorne wendetti green, a small bit of Hydrocotyle tripartita Japan that’s just maybe starting to propitiate, and 12” tall x 5” base castle decoration that has anubias and some sword plants attached to form some cover and cave system type area. I run one medium size Aquarium CoOp sponge filter on sand side of tank, and one bubble stone behind castle plant feature, heater set to 82°, and a Nicrew top of tank light, half a cap of Seachem Flourish Excel every other day. My big question is...is this aquarium under stocked? I am happy with the fish in there now and definitely don’t want to crowd anyone, BUT I wouldn’t mind adding a few guppies IF it would still be ok. Or maybe just one male guppy to keep the female Molly’s company? Or maybe one more show piece larger type of fish? OR am I at a healthy capacity where I am at? In this sort of set up, planted and 29 gallon long aquarium, what would be your max number of community fish and ratios? Thanks so Much! Nancy
