Irene Posted January 4, 2022 Share Posted January 4, 2022 (edited) I'm usually a lurker on the forums and rarely talk about my own tanks here, but I decided to document my progress with breeding pygmy corys because they're just so stinkin' cute! I got them seven months ago, so please excuse me as I backfill the earlier entries... July 1, 2021 I purchased a group of captive-bred pygmy corys from Aquatic Life Farm, and they shipped to me in June. After a few weeks in quarantine, 9 of them got added to a 10-gallon, species-only breeding tank in my kitchen that has been running since late 2020. I have 8.0 pH and relatively soft water (which is boosted with Seachem Equilibrium minerals to keep the plants alive). The plants are floating water sprite, dwarf water lettuce, needle leaf java fern, anubias nana petite, and dwarf sagittaria. Hardscape includes sagewood and pink granite. Substrate is CaribSea Eco-Complete, light is a Finnex Stingray that is on for 6 hours, filtration is a sponge filter, heater is set for 74-78°F, and fertilizers are Easy Green and Easy Root Tabs. This is a screenshot of me pouring in the pygmys, so some of the floating plants got disturbed. Edited January 27, 2022 by Irene 10 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
