    Default Adopting some albino cory's


    0 Not allowed!
    Last year I got one of my young neighbors (age 11) involved in fish keeping and she successfully managed to get some albino cory fry now swimming in her tank. Apparently her endlers/guppies/gouramis don't eat all the eggs.

    It's amazing to see how well she has done with this tank over the past 7 months, so I will be adopting 6 of her little albino's this weekend. They are just about half an inch long at this point and very active. They are a little over a month old and will be a welcome addition to my tank. While my bronze cory's are considerably bigger, hopefully they will all get along and maybe even swim together.

    Congrats. No problem. The albino's are 99,9% sure the same species as your bronze (C.Aeneus).

    Yes they are C. Aeneus so the water/temp requirements are the same. I brought the new little ones home yesterday afternoon and after a nice long acclimation they were placed in the tank. They look so small compared to my bronze cory's but are so active swimming around the tank. 4 of them shoal together most of the time and the other 2 hang out together. They don't really hang out with the Bronze yet, but will jump right into the mix during feeding time.

    I am not a fan of albino fish, they creep me out, but that is a very nice looking fish. Kudos to your 11 year old neighbor for keeping fish better than a lot of adults I know.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    They are a little funky.

    She has been doing really good. Shortly after I got started, they saw me bring in my 50 gal tank and asked about fish keeping. Their girl had been wanting to get started but they didn't know anything about it, so I shared what I had learned (good and bad). I gave her my cycled 10 gal, and female guppies to get her started. When I upgraded to a better 50 gal, she got my other one. I gave her a couple of male endlers and some ghost shrimp with the bigger tank. Since then, she has added gouramis and cory's.

    She changes her own water once per week and keeps a record of her tank and births on her phone. Her parents have told me that she is getting a camera for her birthday, so I'll be helping her with learning how to take pics of her fish.
