About Me

  1. Good morning, Inam setting up a tank with some larger species of fish. I’m thinking some large corydoras would be good to add. What varieties of Cory cat are on the bigger side?
  2. Hello, so I had just gotten some new julli corys and have noticed them being active in the day and night. But are they nocturnal?
  3. My 7 false julii cory keep flashing in the sand. I saw some of my Chili Rasbora do the same so I treated with paracleanse. Problem solved for the rasboras but not the corydoras - they still do it occasionally. The treatment also left the water a bit white ish. Today, they keep shooting up to gulp for air. I know it’s a normal behavior but they are doing it much more frequently. I have a sponge filter and good aeration. And one of them keep hovering above ground but won’t settle. He just swim not erratic or anything but just won’t settle, sometimes just swimming in place, or pacing from side to side. Yet others corydoras are breeding in the same tank. It’s a community tank. Population : 1 honey gourami, 5 otocinclus, 10 chili rasbora, 7 false julii cory, 4 nerita snails. Cycled, planted, temp about 75, ph 6.6, kh 0, gh 300, 0/0/0 WC + gravel siphon every week or 2 weeks depending. Filter is an aqueon hang on back quietflow 20.
  4. Aurora (my male veiltail) is sick. The water is good, the temperature is fine, I don’t know what’s wrong. He rarely eats his food, and you all know that he goes crazy about pellets normally. He rests in the bottom of the tank, only moving to get air or go to a different spot to rest. His stomach is bloated. What should I do??? Anyone who sees this, if you could reply ASAP then I would be so grateful.
  5. Any experience with this sand? It should be home for 12-14 Corys. Thank you.
  6. I brought 6 Julii Corydoras home from my LFS yesterday, put them into quarantine, and fed them live bloodworms hoping to fatten them up before medicating. One had what I thought was an injured Pectoral fin and possible injury to his swim bladder. I put him into a separate nursery tank I was preparing that had already been medicated with Methylene Blue, hoping to prevent infection. This morning he had passed away, and I noticed that a few of the other Corys now had large portions of their fins missing and fraying. Other than the damaged fins, I have not seen any signs of the remaining 5 acting unusual. They are resting together in their shoal and traveling up to the top of the tank for air. I am guessing this is fin rot, but I have never dealt with this before with my livebearers. The picture I added is the one who seems to be in the worst shape. His entire tailfin has completely frayed away. I have added aquarium salt to their tank at half the usual dose; although, I know there is conflicting information about how sensitive to it corys really are. On hand, I have the Quarantine Trio, Methylene Blue, API Aquarium Salt and Malachite Green. In the past, I have known people to use Maracyn 2 for Fin rot, but I can't find it anywhere at a reasonable price or that could be shipped to me in time. Will regular Maracyn work? Should I go get Malefix from Petco? Water Parameters: pH: 7.2 Nitrates: ~15 ppm Hardness: ~200 ppm Nitrite: 0 ppm Ammonia: 0 ppm KH/Buffer: ~40 ppm Water Temperature: 79.1F
  7. Hey folks, I inherited some bronze corys from a friend and am wondering if they'll be OK in a tank with pygmy and Habrosus corys Thanks
  8. This weekend we are doing a sale on all loaches and corydoras. Buy 2 get 1 free! Also make sure to checkout our recent article we just put out on loaches as well. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/blogs/aquarium/loaches
  9. I'm new to the hobby and i just seen this in two of my corydoras. temperature is 79 and 0 ammonia 0 Nitrite and 10 to 20 Nitrate Ph always been low 7.6 High 7.4 i do 50 water change every 7 days but i think my corys are sick or is that normal because they are also flashing once in a while appreciate the help thanks.
  10. Anyone order any from aquahuna have ordered fish from them before but want to see how these are from them ?
  11. When I came into work today I noticed one of my Sterbai Corys has a white spot on them. This is my very first aquarium. It has been set up for five weeks, the inhabitants are 4 Sterbai Corys and 3 Nerite snails; they have been in the tank a little over 2 weeks now. I did a cleaning and 15-20% water change on Saturday. Ammonia 0 Nitirite 0 Nitrate 0-10 KH ~100 GH 300+ PH ~7.6 using the coop test strips. The only change in parameters is the temp jumped up to 82 over the weekend(didn't make any changes to the settings). Usually it's around 76. This is the second time I've had the temp jump with this heater. (is my heater bad, or are all heaters bad?). I thought maybe it was ich, but doing some research it doesn't look like it, and it seems ich shouldn't be viable when the temps are above 80.
  12. This morning I pulled a dead cory that must have passed last night. After my first feeding, I noticed one acting weird and pulled him out of the tank. He has bulging eyes and one of his gills is bright red. His tail also doesn't look as full as the other 3 in the tank. The water is all testing normal. I do have 14 Odessa barbs in this 60 gallons. Could this be them?? I found a dead Odessa 1 week ago, but again all water tests are coming in at a good range. (I did have an ammonia spike with the dead Odessa but a 10% water change got rid of it completely). The shrimp are shedding well, my neon tetras and honey gouramis seem fine. Is this bullying or something I need to take more drastic action?? (this is my first over 10-gallon tank so I'm a lot out of my depth)
  13. Hello everyone, I've been meaning to create a journal on my 29 gallon aquarium and my experiences with it, but I just haven't had time recently, as I am constantly bombarded with homework, tests, and projects in school. As you can probably infer, I have a little period of rest right now from school, which is why I am creating my journal now. Anyway, I've done something similar to a journal in my introduction where I covered my journey through the entire hobby, so I thought that maybe I would do a more in-depth story with pictures and only about one aquarium. Hope you guys don't mind the read... Okay, so it started out with me getting my 29 gallon started up and cycled for a couple of weeks. Setup: I added in pool filter sand as the substrate (I had never tried this before previously I used gravel in my 10 gallon), because I knew Corydoras would love to sift through the sand. For hardscape, I originally included only a few river rocks, but soon later added in some driftwood from my pre-existing 10 gallon. Lastly, I added in a couple of plastic plants I had used in my first setup, and a Java fern grown in gravel, now planted in sand. In terms of equipment for this tank, I originally started with an airstone and a cheap hang-on-back filter from a 10 gallon aquarium kit, as well as a cheap heater from PetSmart. I increased the filtration later on as I get more fish. The original stocking for the aquarium was all the fish from my 10 gallon aquarium (not including the male guppy that had passed away a day before I transferred the fish), meaning a pair of peppered cories (Corydoras paleatus), two albino females (C. aeneus), one Venezuelan male (C. venezuelanus, I didn't know he was different from C. aeneus at the time which is why I only have one), and two Endler's livebearer males (Poecilia wingei), along with a number of Assasin snails (Clea helena) of all sizes. Here is me first releasing the fish from my 10 gallon into their new 29 gallon aquarium. Soon after their introduction, our last guinea pig Samuel passed away, so my parents allowed me to get more fish to compensate (also simply because the tank wasn't at all full, and needed something that would eat algae). I bought a school of five pygmy cories (Corydoras pygmaeus) (also not to eat algae, simply for my enjoyment), and my little sister wanted a pleco, so she chose out a female bristlenose pleco (Ancistrus spec., maybe A. dolichopterus?). With the purchase of the bristlenose pleco came a tiny little guppy (Poecilia reticulata) fry that had made its way into the bag. We added this fry into the 29 gallon as well. Also I added an Amazon swordplant shortly after. After a while, algae started to rapidly take over in the aquarium. Specifically whatever kind of algae this is: I think it's staghorn algae so that's what I am going to call it for now. So I introduced three Amano shrimp from my LFS in order to combat the algal bloom. They immediately got to work on the staghorn algae covering the driftwood, and soon the driftwood was completely clear. Unfortunately, one shrimp jumped out of the aquarium (I don't even know how there is a good lid, and even though it has a space for the filter and stuff, I don't know why a shrimp would jump out, because the other two stayed in the aquarium), and I was not at home when this happened, so sadly this one did not make it. Anyway, they ate all of the mystery algae. At this point, my pair of Corydoras paleatus were beginning to breed, laying eggs which I scooped out and put in a small 1/2 gallon container right next to my aquarium. This container was aerated with an air stone, but otherwise had no other equipment. This first batch of eggs all grew fungus all over it, and I was heartbroken, until a week or two later, right as I was about to throw the container away, I noticed a tiny little baby fish in the container. I put him into the 29 gallon aquarium because I had no other aquariums ready. He made his home under the rock caves that I constructed near the air stone. But soon after this problem came the bloom of hair algae and black beard algae, the former covering the Amazon sword and plastic plants, while the latter took over my driftwood and Java fern. My guppy fry, which grew up and happened to be a female, then had babies with my male Endler's, producing many hybrid fry. In this stage, I also added a MarineLand Penguin Bio-Wheel 150 Power (hang-on-back) Filter made for 30 gallons. Although I have heard bad reviews for it, it worked for me because it was just and had a decent amount of space inside of it to add sponges, cartridges, or filter floss (I started with the cartridge that came with the kit and then switch the media later on). Also, I added an intake sponge over the intake of the filter so that no fry would get sucked up and also so that algae and plant leaves and things like that would not clog the filter. Soon, my Corydoras paleatus started breeding again, and laid about 30 fertile eggs. I used the same process for these as last time, and amazingly, all 30 hatched. I added them into a breeder basket in the main tank. They did fine for a couple of weeks, but then I noticed one or two had died under the frame of the box. So I decided to release them into the main tank, as I was afraid all would meet the same fate. Honestly, I think it would have been best if I just kept them in the box. After a couple of days, I never saw any of them anymore. I think that they might have, 1) gotten eaten by the other fish in the tank, but I don't know who could have eaten them I only had Endler's livebearers, cories, Amano shrimp, and a bristlenose pleco at the time, 2) died of disease, or 3) they died of starvation and not being able to compete for food. Fortunately, three of the 30 survived and I began to see them later on as they got bigger. So at this point, I was really upset and just wanted something new. I finally got my parents to allow me to get plants (ordered off of Aquarium Co-Op they took a lot of convincing though because they were afraid of me getting pest snails that would take over like the trumpet snails in my 10 gallon). I ordered a Cryptocoryne wendtii, Vallisneria, dwarf hairgrass (Eleocharis), and a dwarf aquarium lily (Nymphaea stellata). After this I went to my LFS to get Cabomba caroliniana, two Siamese algae eaters (Crossocheilus siamensis) for the still going hair algae problem, and a male pearl gourami (Trichopodus leeri). Also picked up my first Repashy to try it out as well. Soon, my aquarium was nice and green, and I added a black background for viewing purposes. I also decided to add more filtration (the water was pretty cloudy) so I ordered an Aquarium Co-Op sponge filter meant for 10 gallons (I had ordered this for my 10 gallon aquarium but wasn't using it at the time). After keeping this setup and stocking for a while, and while the guppies/endlers kept having more babies, I noticed my tank was way overstocked. The gourami was being aggressive toward the cories during feeding, the Siamese algae eaters were constantly fighting, and the bristlenose pleco was always chasing the other fish away from the food on the bottom (she, unlike the gourami, would just charge straight at whatever she felt wanted to take her food, even if they were half the tank apart. This meant baby cories, the gourami, and even the Amano shrimp). So I started by removing a large school of guppies (I took out the ones I wanted to breed) and added them to my newly restarted 10 gallon to start a colony. I removed my disintegrating Cabomba and put it in there as well (I never can seem to have success with this plant someone please give tips). Later, due to continued aggression, I moved both the pearl gourami and one of the Siamese algae eaters into the 10 gallon as well for temporary holding. They are still in there now, and aren't too big yet, so I plan on moving them or getting them a new home once they get bigger. Anyway, my guppies continue to have babies in the 10 gallon, but the ones in the 29 are not old enough yet, so they will soon. I added in water sprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides) in place of the Cabomba, and it is growing well along with the dwarf aquarium lily and the Cryptocoryne wendtii. My goal with this setup is to create a nice "jungle," where there are a lot of plants covering the back and sides of the aquarium, with many different species of fish of different shapes and sizes all thriving together. Right now, it doesn't look too good though. Despite the plants that are growing well, algae is taking over the glass walls (I think green spot algae and some other type). In addition, the Vallisneria in the back doesn't grow anymore, and the Amazon sword that I had originally put in the tank several months ago has gotten smaller and smaller (it was propogated underwater at my LFS), and now is looking green and brown. The hairgrass is growing okay. Any suggestions on what to do with these current problems would be well appreciated. Also, I thought I might add that the bristlenose pleco died just a week or so ago, probably due to internal parasites that might be causing the fish in both my 10 and 29 gallon to scratch themselves on the substrate. I am ordering the medications (API General Cure I heard works well) now, and so far no one else has died yet. Anyway, I thought I might include a few pictures of the fish in the tank at the moment: Here is a pair of Amano shrimp on their favorite driftwood. The female has eggs, but I heard they don't hatch in freshwater. But if anyone has hatched Amano shrimp before, please give advice I want to try and hatch her eggs. Corydoras attacking Repashy: Community Plus So currently, my conditions are: Equipment: Nicrew 30 Inch Light, MarineLand Penguin Bio-Wheel 150 Power Filter, Aquarium Co-Op 10 Gallon Sponge filter (powered by Aqua Culture 5-15 Gallon Air Pumo), 6 inch airstone (powered by Tetra 20-40 Gallons Air Pump), Some kind of heater I forgot the brand Plants: Vallisneria (2), Cryptocoryne wendtii (2 plus new plants from runners), Dwarf Aquarium Lily (1), Dwarf Hairgrass (1), Amazon Sword (1), Java Fern (1 large, plus many smaller plantlets planted in different spots), Water Sprite (1). Fish and Other Livestock: Albino Corydoras (2), Peppered Corydoras (5), Pygmy Corydoras (5), Venezuelan Corydoras (1), Guppy/Endler's Livebearer Hybrids (Around 20 of various sizes), Siamese Algae Eater (1), Amano Shrimp (2), Assassin Snail (Many). So that's my journey with this aquarium so far. As I mentioned earlier, I want a bit more variety in my fish species, so I plan selling some of the guppy/endler hybrids and assassin snails (or moving them) and stocking the aquarium with a couple other different peaceful fish, like tetras (I like rosy tetras, cardinals, diamonds, lemons, black neons, and pristellas), rasboras (maybe the micro rasboras?), minnows (white clouds), or other Corydoras (I know that would probably be too many bottom dwellers though, so maybe only a friend for the Venezuelan or albinos, or more pygmy cories so they school in the middle instead of taking up more room on the bottom). I also like Bolivian Rams, but I know they get pretty big and act like a gourami so not suitable for my community. So if you guys have any ideas on which other fish I could do in the aquarium, go ahead and give your suggestions down below. I'll make sure to give updates on this aquarium in the future. Sorry for the long read, but if you did make it this far, thanks for reading!
  14. I have a tiny Julii corydora - it's always been smaller than the rest and its fins look different from the others...which is not really an issue. But, as I was observing the tank this morning, I noticed that there was some oddness. I took a little video - check out the top of the head (the area between the eyes and the dorsal fin). Does that look like fungus to you? If so, should I treat the whole tank? Do you notice anything else I should be concerned about? Does the body condition and activity look okay? As of this moment, I am planning on doing a water change to vacuum the substrate and starting Ich X...I'm also planning on doing more research about diets and adding some frozen foods to the regimen...I'm worried little Peggy isn't getting enough of the right stuff to eat. I'm not seeing any symptoms in the other fish in the tank - I actually was pretty excited to see what I thought was some friskiness with the other cory cats in the tank. So, I'm trying to decide if treating the entire tank is the move...or if I should try to isolate Classic Peg. Water parameters: Temperature - 77 F Ammonia - 0 Nitrite - 0 Nitrate - 25 GH -75 KH - 10 pH - 6.6 Chlorine - 0
  15. Day before yesterday I was peering into my 10 gallon with my habrosus colony (have had some sadness there recently so have been following closely…that’s another story), and I noticed that my Corys had spawned!!! On a ramshorn snail!😂😂😂. I just let it alone…I’m trying not to mess with the tank too much, just good maintenance these days…and lo and behold today, that lovely ramshorn made an appearance at the front of the tank, with that delightfully cute Cory egg still hanging on! I am not going to fetch the egg out. Planning on my 10 gallon box of nature to take its course, but this little duo made me smile today. Hope it does for you too! Take care all!
  16. Hey guys, I am setting up a new 130l planted tank (34gal) and would like a nice school of whiteclouds in there. I am looking for a fish that stays in the underlayers of the tank (like corydoras do) but I am unsure if corydoras can be kept at the same temperatures as the whiteclouds. Any advice? My go to fish would be the panda- or the sterbai cory but I want to have a second opinion first. Can it be done (and by that I mean will the fish be happy) and is there another fish I am missing that would be better suited? Thanks in advance!
  17. Nayoni


    Hi I’m Nayoni, one year into the hobby. I left my eight fishtanks in the care of a friend and I left six pages of instructions including CO2 feeding water changes adding water the difference in adding water an a water change! Food was taped to each tank with Post-it‘s for that particular fish in a plastic baggie for every day I was gone it was three days. Portion package I mean I had everything separated out to go perfect and smoothly. A day or so after I return home from my trip I noticed that my Corydoras were not looking so well. A couple we’re having some swim bladder issues so I immediately did an epsom salt bath on the tank with to drawl the fluid did a 85% water change I then medicated with your usual meds for a bacterial issue. Mind you at this point I used no actual real and antibiotics as of yet to right watever wrong was happening here. anything that would be causing the swim bladder including constipation the Epsom salt helps with that as well was given for five days. I in did another water change and noticed that My Corydoras were rubbing and itching on the sand like they had ick- I didn’t see any signs of it but they were all itching and bouncing off the sand like they had it. They looked like a bunch of Mexican jumping beans. so I then commence a five day ick treatment. Water change again now I am seeing Popeye I had five baby albinos in that tank - five juvenile bronze- one adult bronze -2 adult female albinos and one emerald. I lost my emerald -one adult female albino )whom had just laid eggs for the first time)one baby albino 2 pom-pom crabs 36 shrimp. what’s worse is I have two beautiful bears and I looked in their tanks and saw that they both had Popeye three days ago which was the last day of round two of treatment on the Corydoras. I have now had to begin treatment on every tank I have so 14 fish are under treatment right now and I am on day four of marycn 2 ,this is the second round of it , and the Popeye is getting worse in my Betos it’s getting better in my bronze Corydoras and worse in my albino Corydoras. I am at a loss and I don’t know what to do I’ve got perfect water parameters I’ve clean the tank so I’ve change the water and all of this because I found out my friend that was watching my fish while I was gone for three days put his fingers in the tanks in in the water that he put in the tanks I don’t know why he would do something like that you don’t think to tell people don’t put your fingers in the tank so I don’t know if he may have scratched here or picked his nose or not washed his hands after using the restroom and got bacteria in my tanks I don’t know all the fish are getting different sickness is it differentTimes but they’re all sick I don’t know what to do this will be around three for Corydoras - round 2 for the betas and I don’t know what to do after this course of treatment do it again? Any thoughts or anyone that has been through this or had a friend that put their fingers in every aquarium tank you have and contaminate them? I love everyone of my fishy‘s and my pom-pom crabs and my shrimpy‘s and to lose them is breaking my heart and I have spent every single day rushing back-and-forth with buckets of water sorry my electric hose doesn’t reach that far in this fish room I’ve been making myself crazy and I don’t know what to do after this round of treatment someone out there please help me? Please and thank you
  18. Newbie here. I tried to search for an answer but...I have so many questions. I got Pepper Corys breeding. Great, right? Well the problem is I am not sure what to put the hatching fry in. There are so many different ways to raise them. I collected the first batch of eggs eight days ago. Kept in a rubbermaid snack container with about a cup of water and added few drops of hydrogen peroxide. Changed out the water three to four times a day with tap water that had cycle and aqua-plus added to it. (I did not use the parent tank water as I have been medicating for ICK). The water sits and is room temperature. I have a halogen lamp above for light and it produces good warmth. Today they are hatching and I am not sure what/how to keep them. I am unable to purchase anything at the moment. So, is it ok to raise the little gaffers in a plastic or glass container? How deep? How big? Airstone? When would a sponge filter be required. I've got pool filter sand for the bottom, and I can use some moss from one of the clean tanks. I raise BBS and have frozen Daphnia to begin feeding in a couple of days. So far today, I have seven hatched from the 23 eggs which were fertile. Yesterday, they laid another batch of eggs - 60! Guess they like the tank parameters. I have only had them for three months, the older gals, and added four more younger ones in the last two weeks. They are all from the LFS, but different batches so not siblings. It looks like I have three of each male/female. Also, one of the guppies decided to drop their fry as well. So I have them in a ten gallon. Would I be able to grow-out the corydoras in the same tank? Gosh sorry. But I wasn't prepared for all these babies. I thought it would take awhile for the corydoras to spawn.
  19. Every person I have ever heard talk about fish breeding and especially corydoras breeding says that every single fish will eat every single fish egg as soon as they are laid. Almost every time my Cories lay eggs no fish will bother them (my Xenotoca Doadrioi got a taste for them and then would occasionally eat them but still not all of them) and they will always stay till they hatch. The Cories seem to 'clean' the eggs and pull off the infertile or bad eggs as a few eggs will be missing yet that's 3/~400 so that isn't even many. In this tank I have 3 Discus, 1 Synodontis Petricola, 5 Pea Puffers, and over 30 Cories of 4 species mixed. The eggs are of the Bronze Aeneus Cory. What I am looking for is others with similar experiences and for those who THINK or believe that all fish will always eat all the eggs, I think maybe we should slow down and try to look at as many factors as we can to determine what is TRULY going on as every single experience is different and we need to take that into account. So thank you in advance for helping and not being hostile or overly negative.
  20. My Cory has a weird spot by his/her gills. It's a little red and has a white spot. He hasn't been swimming around much lately but the other Cory's seem to be fine. I tested my water and the ph was a little low. The ammonia was off but only slightly and I'm going to fix that in the morning. I took the Cory out of the tank and I'm going to set up my old tank somewhere so he can be alone incase it's a disease. I have four Cory, one pleco, two guppies and a molly. I have some plants in the tank idk if that changes anything I'm not an expert. I had a piece of drift wood in the tank but I just removed it because my pleco dug under it and junk was in it. I don't have specific Cory food but they eat the same algae waffers I put in for my pleco. I'm in b.c. and we just recently had a temperature spike so I had to turn down my heater because the temp was getting a little too high. All my other fish are doing well and my pleco isn't discoloured at all. My pleco is Harold and he is very sensitive about things, if I move a rock or anything he starts to get stressed and he'll show little white spots for a few minutes until he's calm again. I'm pretty concerned about the little guy who's named Cinnamon. I had my pleco, molly and one Cory before, the pet store didn't tell me I needed a group of them. I went to get some more fish for my tank because the molly and the Cory seemed lonely. I got them from a family run store and they were all very passionate about fish and knew their stuff. It was a giant warehouse type bulding with so many aquatic animals from the size of guppies to things the size of large dogs. I got another three Cory and they're all getting along. Cinnamon is one of the new fish I got and I've had him for about a week and a half now. I don't think my pleco attacked him because the bite would be too small and I don't thing it was my guppies either. Might of been my molly but it's very calm and has never shown agressive behavior.
  21. Greetings! Apparently my false julii corydoras have been having a lot of fun. Each morning I wake up to 5-15 eggs. I am however having trouble hatching them. I watched a lot of video, especially @Irene - I put my eggs in a small container with a few drop of mythilene blue and an air stone. I let it float in the main tank, I remove the bad eggs, I do WC but only 1 hatched so far. A lot of them are actually turning darker... I had the idea to transfer them in my 10 gallons where I raise clown killifish fry but the substrate is gravel, not sand. Any advice on what I should do differently? Thank you!
  22. I bought one of the value packs from liveaquaria.com and it came with 3 cory's. It's been a short time but they're acting pretty wild by swimming fast up & down on the front glass. All the one's I've seen in the stores just chill out at the bottom. I do feel like the current is too much in my tank as I have a Fluval 306 in a 27g cube tank so I wonder if that's the issue?
  23. Hello everybody, As you could probably tell, Corydoras are my favorite fish. Post your pictures of your cory cats here along with the species name if possible. Here I have my albino and green cories (C. aeneus), both adult and baby peppered cories (C. paleatus), and pygmy cories (C. pygmaeus.). Thanks!
  24. Hello, I have had Pygmy Cories for awhile now and have really wanted to breed them. Any help because so far they haven’t spawned.
  25. Just look for some help ID'g what might be going on with my Corys so I can make the best treatment decision. pH = 6.8 Am/N-ite/N-ate = 0-0-5ppm KH = 2 GH = 12 Temp 78 Of the 6, these two are the worst. 2 others have one small patch each. 2 Have none. Eating well but stressed. Just transferred to the hospital tank. I have Ich-X, Melafix, Maracyn Oxy and aquarium salts available immediately. Happy to order in or pick up something more appropriate. I am new to treating fish. Any advice would be sincerely appreciated.
