    Sounds like a good mix, you could get a school of 10 embers to go with 8 C. habrosus and call it good.

    As long as that's not in rock hard water that should be a nice combination. Only drawback I can think of is that when the cories start to breed you'll get a very low survival rate.

    Ah, that reminds me of a question!
    Now, I don't really want to deal with a bunch of baby corys since I'll have no tank other then the quarantine. So is it okay for me to just remove any eggs from the aquarium that might appear?

    I wouldn't even bother. With the embers in there I'd be highly amazed if you'd get half a dozen new cories over a single year. It's not a species that will overrun your tank because thje eggs are easily accessible and the fry very small in the first week.

    If I may, I believe talldutchie is letting you know that eggs and fry are quite a delicious snack to any fish with a mouth big enough to gobble them up.

    Yea the ember tetras will eat the eggs of the cories, so you may get luck and get a few survivors

    Thanks for the info guys!

    Check these out:
    I can't believe I didn't look for this on the site for my city:
    "The pH of our water is maintained between 7.8 and 9.2. It is a base."
    "Hardness is primarily a measurement of calcium and magnesium concentration. Water is considered hard if it measures more than 125 parts per million, or 7.5 grains per gallon of trace minerals. Our water has a hardness measure of 30 parts per million, or 1.8 grains per gallon, which is considered soft."
    So... I've got soft water. That's good.
    High ph for these fish... Not so good :/
    I guess I'm gonna have to find a way to lower my ph.

    If it's indeed soft water I see no issues.

    Let some water sit for 24 hrs and test ph again. If it's still in that range including some wood and a few oak leafs will help a lot.
