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?"A room without books is like a body without a soul."

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.

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."A room without books is like a body without a soul."
