I'm giving the corys a bit extra food atm just to make sure the little ones get enough to live on. Tetra prima and prima mini granules are great for fry and small fish. Fingers crossed lol can't have enough corys
i agree, I could quite happily have a big tank and just have corys in there. I have about 8 Panda Corys and they are GORGEOUS
There are other tetra species out there that are big enough to not be bothered bu Angels. Also it depends on your fish. You could try it and get angels that are not interested in the neons or you could get ones that are. I had to remove my last lot of angels as they had a VERY bad temperament and would chase anything and nip at them.
The fancies are not staying and are in place as a placeholder for keeping my filter bacteria alive while I finalise what tropical fish I do want.
At the moment they are also juvenile so I am happy that they are not overstocking but as I said I hope to get the tropicals this weekend and will re-home the fancies, the LFS I use are low stock on fancies so are happy to rehome them for me.
I do have an API freshwater master test kit and my current readings are -
Ammonia - 0 Nitrite - 0 Nitrate - 20 - 30 pH - 7.2 - this was 7.6 with a bag of Coral Sand in the filter to buffer the pH which has since been removed.
