wijnands: That tank... would be quite a sight to see.
LadyHobbs: Good points, when adding so many more fish surely I should be a bit more cautious. I'll definitely break out the old small filter...

Wow... my mouth was pretty much agape when I saw these replies! 20 or more Neons would be fantastic! I love their brilliant and contrasting colors.
Thank you all so much. I will definitely be...

Thank you both.
LadyHobbs: How many more Neons do you think I could add (in a addition to four or so shrimp)? Your advice was very exciting! Nothing like that feeling when introducing new...

Here are the specifics:
-20 gallon tall aquarium, almost a year old
- double filtration
- 50% weekly water change
- borderline heavily planted
- 75 watt incandescent, 10 hours a day...
ldoerr. that would most definitely be great news, but I'm somewhat doubtful. They're Peppered Cories. The fact that I noticed these specks around the same time I noticed the fish flashing in the sand...
850R, the whole essence of my inquiries was to see what exactly members of this forum thought was wrong. The premise was: are my fish infected with ich in the first place? If so, what do I do now? I...
I figured that the fish being elsewhere (the hospitable tank) would eliminate the ich in the main tank.
Thank you, but I know what ich looks like, though I don't recall anyone describing the spots...
So, for the past month I had been under the impression that my Cories were suffering from ich. They had, and continue to have, a good amount of very shiny specks on their bodies, mainly away from...
I medicated again this morning, at normal dosage. Last night I noticed "skin" peeling off of one of my Corys. I still cannot tell if their condition is improving. They continue to be...
I did a full dosage yesterday morning and I'm really hoping to see this cured.
No, I haven't seen any spots fall off, they're more numerous now.
The temperature is about 82 degrees and has been that high since I began medicating. I will do my best in trying to purchase and...
My fish have not responded to the medication after 5 days.
I have medicated the tank twice, but at half the normal dosage because of the lack of scales in catfish.
What do I do now? It appears...
Thanks guys, but out of urgency I just bought "Super Ick Cure" by API. It contains Malachite Green and Nitrofurazone, will these kill the plants?
Any more advice? Thanks again.
I've only recently pieced together the signs of ich in my Peppered Corys and I'm struggling as to how I should treat them. I'd noticed thrashing against substrate and plants, and now upon close...

I agree, my tank is only about 14 inches tall and the Corys never have any problems when they dart to the surface for air.
I can't wait to see the little guys in such a large shoal, there's going...

Yeah, you guys are right. A school of 8 or 9 Peppered Corys would be best. I guess I just wanted to see a little more variety in my two species tank haha.
Will they be less timid in such large...

I have a twenty-gallon, tall aquarium with double filtration and considerable vegetation. It's already stocked with 8 Neon Tetra and 4 Peppered Corys (with one fry approaching one inch, I plan on...
Yes, that would make sense Cliff. I need to first acquire the money to get a kit, who knows how long that will take. Until then, I suppose water changes twice a week or so should help the problem....
The sand is play sand from Lowe's that has been washed for the most part, I've had it for a couple of months. I use AquaSafe by Tetra. Unfortunately, I do not own a test kit so I have...
I've had had my tank since late July, it's not establishing itself or anything like that. It always turns this slight putrid green despite thirty percent water changes every week. I also have double...

Thanks for responding.
The eggs appear to be the pale white you describe but I just noticed the first few eggs last night. My aquarium has double filtration (it's a twenty gallon) so I'm hoping...

Yesterday I noticed these little 2 mm wide circles on the side of my tank. I just assumed they were some sort of algae or fungus, I've never seen fish eggs before.
After looking up Cory egg...

I woke up this morning and the tank was just as murky as it was the previous afternoon. Long story short, with a hose, a bucket, tons of water, and an hour on my hands, the tank is now...
08-22-2011, 10:06 PM
All right, awesome guys, I was getting really worried. I'll keep you posted on the condition of my tank and hopefully it will be pretty clear by this time tomorrow and I'll be able to put everything...
08-22-2011, 09:39 PM
Haha thanks everyone, but my aquarium's looking even cloudier than that, here's a bad picture.
Do you think my fish will last in this tub for about two days without a filter? At least I get to...
