  1. Default Invisible Cories


    0 Not allowed!
    I have 4 Corydoras in my tank, and they all stay near the back where I have some plants, and their behind a large piece of driftwood. The albino used to come out quite a bit, but not anymore, and i hardly ever see the other 3. Anyone have any tips to get them to come out? Thanks.

    Try a piece of zucchini....all of my fish except the carnivores love it and it never fails to get a skittish fish to come out. Some people (as I do) put it in fresh...alot of fish will start nibbling at it right away...others blanch/nuke it for a few seconds to soften it up before putting it in. Weigh it down with something and once the lights go off you will probably see some happily munching cories!

    Thanks Kimmers, I'll pick up some tomorrow. Is there also something I could do to the tank that would make them more active, such as floating plants to soften the light?

    The more hiding places they have the more active they are. It makes them feel comfortable to know that if they venture out they always have somewhere to zip into in a hurry if something scares them. I have also spent alot of time snapping pics at night of my bottom feeders which since that is usually there active time seems to make them less skittish all the way around.

    That would be why I haven't seen any at my lfs, maybe they only carry the invisible kind.

    Is there a chance that someone else in the tank is harassing them?

    Not really, I have an angel, 2 kissers, 6 Harlequin Rasboras, and 2 Flame Tetras (survivors, Im about to open a topic to ask if its okay to fill the school out again, I only have a 26 gallon) in there with them. The kissers would seem to be the only culprit, but they dont mess with them, the only chase one another, only take note of the other fish when they avoid running into them.
