  1. My albino corys are constantly feeling around for food. They swim right past obvious food as if they are blind. Does anybody know? I have a total of 15 and they all act the same.
  2. I sent an order off to Aqua Huna on Tuesday (using the link on the Coop page so they get some payback) and the fish arrived today. Not bad. I ordered six albino cory catfish, six panda cory catfish, and ten cherry shrimp. Everyone was alive when they got here. One albino cory cat was barely alive, but seems to be improving. He's now sitting upright and moving occasionally. He was curled up and apparently dead on his side in the bag, but is looking better now. Kind of interesting in that you see no gill movement for several minutes then about ten seconds of rapid breathing, then back to nothing for a minute or two. Everyone went into a breeder box after being acclimated so I can feed them more intensively and keep an eye on them for a few weeks. As anticipated, all are quite small, but that's not a big issue for me. The photos on Aqua Huna show the fish relative to the size of a penny, so I knew what to expect. Small fish tend to disappear in a bigger planted tank though, so by keeping them in the breeder box for a bit I can better monitor them and fatten them up. They aren't competing with the horde outside for food in the box and they're not crowded. The breeder boxes circulate water from the tank through the boxes so the fish are essentially in the big tank, just outside it in the breeder box. Each breeder box is attached to the tank the fish will eventually go into. The albino corys are on the thirty high, the panda corys are on the twenty high, and the shrimp are on the ten gallon tank. The cherry shrimp were interesting. They were very pale with essentially no color until they hit their breeder box that has a clump of java moss with lots of algae on it. The box also has a lot of algae growing on the walls of the box. It was like someone hit a light switch. Within ten seconds of being put in that box they were colored up and feeding. They've also got a piece of cholla wood in with them for more shelter. These are my first shrimp and they're pretty impressive little critters. They're very active. Eleven of the twelve cory cats are doing great. The twelfth guy is improving. Going from apparently dead to not dead is an improvement. The ten shrimp all look great. I was surprised the shrimp came in a breather bag and wasn't sure about floating the breather bag to temperature acclimate so I ended up hanging it half in the water and half out. The bags were all 74 degrees when they got here and my tanks are about 76 so there wasn't a huge difference anyway. I followed the Aqua Huna acclimation instructions (though I really wanted to plop and drop the albino cory who wasn't looking good.) So far anyway, I'm very happy. I'm still half expecting to lose the one albino cory, but corys are tough little fish, so we'll see. One good thing about getting fish small is there's little to no impact on the bioload. Each breeder box of fish has maybe the same bioload as one of my swordtails.
  3. Yesterday morning I noticed my bronze and my albino's, ahem* behavior. The day before I did a water change... so eggs! Dad: Ponyo, albino | Mom: Sosuke, Bronze Background: I have had the bronze momma, Sosuke, for over a year now. She is my veteran Cory. Parents don't have favorites, but her and I go way back. So, needless to say, I love her. The albino is a more recent addition to the community tank. In the past Sosuke has laid many clutches, but none have been fertilized, guppies get them before I can, novice attempts and / or that darn fungus kept them from hatching. This time the albino and bronze have been doing the famous T and eggs were laid immediately after so I know these are valid eggs. To save them from my hungry guppies, I decided to move them to a hatch / grow out tank. This was my first time saving majority of them and using methylene blue, so I am hopeful. I ordered an egg tumbler, but needed to move the eggs sooner than it's arrival. *Should I move them to the egg tumbler or leave them be in the "hatch tank"? I plan on 50% water changes daily til hatched then 2-3x/week for the hatched fry. What are your experiences with Cory breeding?
  4. Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and I need some advice. I have a freshly planted 65 gallon aquarium. I have 5 Cory's in the tank. 2 julii, 1 emerald, and 2 albino. The 2 albino were put in the tank about 2 weeks ago. Since the first day 1 of the Cory's swims back and forth non stop day and night. He only stops to eat. I have other bottom dwellers and tetras and everyone is so calm and peaceful except for this one fish. All of my water parameters are ok and no other fish is acting weird. Any suggestions? Oh when he stops to eat he's ok for about an hour, then back to surfing.
  5. I recently had a Corydoras Paleatus offspring show up in my albino breeding tank. Are albino Corydoras an albino Paleatus? I always thought they were Aeneus.
  6. Hey. 😔 I was doing a nightly checkup on my 75 gallon and I noticed one my cories dead. He was swimming perfectly earlier in the day and he’s never got picked on before. But like 2 hours ago I noticed that he was sitting in the corner by the filter not moving. Do you guys know why he died?
