Here's the photo, about 30 seconds after putting them back into the tank (hope it posts ok). Cory is on the rock, half hidden behind the cichlid (head is just below the gill area). As I said, they...
Figure I should give an update. Thanks for the advice. It all worked out in the end - at least for the Cockatoo, I have no idea about the pygmy cory. He (I believe it was a he - was one of the...
My Cockatoo Cichlid has bitten off more than he can swallow. He is currently swimming slowly around the tank trying to dislodge a pygmy cory it tried to eat. The tail is sticking out about 4mm, and...

I think I should clarify after re-reading - I'm talking about a double-red and a blue Apistogramma cacatuoides - different version of the same species, or something?

Update time... so I picked up a pair of double-reds at the end of June. After 10 days in QT they settled in very well. The female soon picked her favourite shelter, kicking the pygmy corys out -...

I asked this in the SA Cichlid part of the forum - this may be a better area...
QT is ready, and this afternoon (or I could delay 'til tomorrow) I'd like to pick-up a South American Dwarf Cichlid...

Sorry, one more question to add to previous post:
More reading, and Double Red Cacaruoides seem to be the same fish as Cockatoo cichlids. Looks as though full grown Amano shrimp will be OK, small...

So, the QT is set-up, just need to add the seeded sponge from the main tank. Visited my LFS today - GBRs & Bolivian Rams, which are often available. But also have some very nice looking fish listed...

Makes sense - I was just wondering because so many sources say they can die so easily early on. Next stop is the LFS to see what species they have available, or can get. If anyone has any feedback...
DK30 - power bar is now installed, thanks for the suggestion. Simple solutions are usually the best, too bad I didn't think of it before.
And Xavier, that's a great way to get...

Iím looking for some colourful exhibits for my planted, established 37 gallon tank. I lost some fish recently (heater incident) including a pair of pearl gourami that looked great. Current...
Since I last posted (quite some time ago) my tank has undergone some unplanned, self-inflicted changes. While I know some of you are going to say this is obvious, I thought I'd post a tip that may...
Thanks eltyIT. I was trying to create a gallery in the public forum, where it would be easy for a couple of friends to find it. At least they ended up somewhere visible! Now to get a few more...
So... I created and album and uploaded some photos. I can see them, but I think they may be in a private album, associated with my profile, and not in the member section, where anyone can view...
Thanks very much for the replies. Good, it would appear She really is a she!
As for the pics, yes, I know... and I tried! I got a couple of decent photos of him, but she is shy, and I couldn't...
Eight months ago I bought two young pearl gouramis, a male and a female. They've more than doubled their size, and the male is definitely a male. Colourful, long flowing fins, just like photos on...
Nothing to add about potential harmful affects, but I do know what you mean by silly mistakes.
Last time I broke down my QT I decided to try fit the job into a busy schedule. I took the heater...
One thing to look at is the light spectrum of any LED lamps you consider. Some may not provide the wavelengths best for plant growth - although many of the latest do appear geared to either planted...
37 gallon, fish as noted below (nowhere near fully stocked). Tank established 22 months, parameters all good.
One BH has been struggling for just over a week. Struggles to keep upright, it is...
Yes, the pygmies seem a little pointless now. Much more fun when they were active. At least they don't take up much bioload.
And good point on the filtration, thanks.
The Penguin has worked...
Parameters are fine, 0 Am, 0 trites and consistent 5 - 10 ppm nitrates. pH steady around 6.8
The BHs have always been shy when someone approaches the tank (I've had three of them for 3Ĺ years)....
My tank: 37 gallon, Penguin 200, planted. Current stock:
6 Bleeding Heart Tetras
5 Neon Tetras
3 Amano Shrimp
8 Pygmy Corys
My initial plan (earlier this year) was to increase the BHs...
Hopefully you are right, LadyHobbs, and from past experience, you probably are!
There are a lot of stories on the interweb about neons with growths that don't seem to have other issues.
I'm not an expert, but your neon looks just like one of mine. Could be columnaris, which I believe I have been struggling with in a QT for months (see my posts in this forum further down (Persistent...
Giving the baths a try. If nothing else it is experience for me.
homemadepopcorn, you say triple strength - you mean 0.15ppm for malachite green as opposed to the 0.05ppm for a standard treatment,...
