Terrific article! Thanks Dave.

I'm new here and new to keeping fish, but I have three trilineatus (thought they were julii until you got me to look into it a bit more). I'd like to add to this thread that I almost made a huge mistake today. Someone had recommended to me that aquarium salt can be good for fish so I bought some when I was out earlier. Luckily I did some research before I put it in, and learned what I'm sure most of you know: that salt can be extremely harmful to corys.

Anyway, thanks again for all your hard work.
