    I was planing on getting about 6 albino bronze cories, and was wondering if in my quarentine tank i would need to have any kind of substraight, or decor. Can i just have a plain tank with water, filter, heater etc? Would a 5 gallon be big enough for a quarentine for the 6 corries?

    for the set up of the QT, you need a heater, filter and water.
    anything else runs the risk of contamination/extra cleaning after you are finished with the QT time frame. so there is no reason to add all that.

    I think you are pushing it with that many cory's in a 5gallon. the footprint really isn't there for them to swim around.

    +1 - I wouldn't put that many corys in a tank that size myself (that's the size of my QT too) even for quarantine purposes - 3 at most.

    No substrate is needed but a small fake plant is nice for fish to hide behind - it's also good to cover the back/sides of the tank (I used spray paint).

    As a matter of fact I like no substrate because then you can see that the fish are pooping daily and any leftover food that you would need to vacuum up right away.

    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    Well, the ones my lfs has now, are babies at about an inch, and the rest I was just curious for a gt tank, they are going in a 20g later.

    Fry will be fine in your 5.5g.
    Adults would be crowding it, but better tight quarantine than no quarantine.
    Keep the light dim or a lot dimmer than your community tank.
