    If you only have cories and goldfish in your tank, you could add a few small ice cubes on night and they may breed. The ice simulates the raining season.

    But, the goldfish really would be better off in colder water.

    Hmm, maybe I could stimulate it. So can i just put my female and male in my quarentine, and they will breed? It takes a LONG time to heat up, so right now its stuck at 71 degrees. Is this good? Will they breed? and how long do I keep them in there?

    71, I believe, is too cold for corys to breed. Males and females won't always pair up, but once they do they will mate for life. So it is not like livebearers where you just put a male and a few females in together to get them to breed. There's more to it than that and it is amazing to watch them.

    Echoing I know, but goldfish are coldwater, corys are tropical.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    ...If that is too cold, how about just freezing some dechlorinated water and putting it in the MAIN tank?

    Corys can live in a coldwater goldfish tank but the goldfish can't live in a tropical tank. Corys can adjust to a wide variety of temperatures since the puddles they live in in the wild can change temperature very suddenly. You could just turn off your heater for a few hours instead of putting in the ice cubes. Just make sure you monitor your temp so it doesn't drop to far.

    I always drop algae discs on the bottom of my tank and my cories love 'em.

    But in the wild cories eat meaty stuff, so you need to only supplement algae disks and feed shrimp pellets, or even better NLS for a staple.

    Aha, I have some of those tubifex worms and nothing around here will eat them but the danios. I will give my corys some now with that helpful suggestion.

    In my tank everyone eats them except the BN. This is really off topic, but I am talking about my BN, so I guess it could be on topic. He hides all day, and never eats, not even at night. He either is sucking on the glass on the BOTTOM of the tank, or upside down in the one specific place on my wood. Any guesses? Sorry if I am hi-jacking.

    How long have you had him?
    Many plecos are wild caught and it takes time for them to adjust to tank life.
    My Gold Nugget is finally just starting to move about the tank after 3 months.
    Currently keeping the following species:
    Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus L001
    Baryancistrus sp. L018
    Hypancistrus sp. L066
    Panaque maccus L104
    Microglanis poecilus
    Serrasalmus nattereri
    Poecilia reticulata
    Yasuhikotakia morleti
    Corydoras aeneus
    Corydoras aeneus Albino
    Corydoras arcuatus
    Corydoras panda
