flyingcow Posted October 12, 2022 Share Posted October 12, 2022 So the 36 Gallon tank is doing pretty well downstairs, save for the loss of one of my Rams, and my mother gave me her 10 gallon tank when she upgraded to a 20 high, so... Pygmy Corys? PIGMY CORYS! I set this tank up with mesh bags of Fluval Stratum capped with ADA Colorado sand. It was stupid expensive, but dang is it purdy. After cycling and planting, 6 tiny guys came home! All 6 are settling in well. I had one that was acting very lethargic, but he seems to be coming around and is eating well. I think I'll just call him Snoozer. As usual, the stem plant I have added is already dying. I am now 1 for 5 on stem plants. The crypts seem to be settling in well, the anubias are doing their anubias thing, and this Tiger Lotus is looking AMAZING! Hopefully, as my Pink Flamingo continues to recover (fingers crossed), it will also come up to this tank. I also have some scarlet temple floating in my quarantine tank, so if this one dies, hopefully that one will develop some new roots and can go in. Stem plants hate me except for my H. compacta. I also may have gone a little overboard on filtration: I'll let you know how it looks in 2032 when I first need to clean it. 🤣 After it settles in for a while, either Chili Rasboras or Cherry shrimp will likely join the Pygmy Party. 9 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
