Well I do hope they make it to adulthood. Been keeping a look out every day but haven't seen them since. 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

Re: Freshwater angel compatibility? #23
Personally I think its not worth the risk.

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.

Re: 125 litre tank stocking advice #24
Whats your water like? pH wise if you have a high pH like 7.8+ you could do a multi tank, if its at the bottom end, sort of 7.2ish you go could dwarf cichlids like Bolivian Rams.

Re: cycled tank showing ammonia?? #25
Have you checked your tap water nitrates? if your tap water Nitrate is 10-20 you will not be able to improve on that unless you use RO water.

What sort of test kit are you using? dip tests can be a bit inaccurate.

Re: cherry shrimp pop BOOM! #26
Fishlady - Can I ask how much you normally sell your cherry shrimp for please?

I know the weather at the moment isnt that great - worse than normal infact but would be interested in purchasing some shrimp from you.

Re: Which Dwarf Cichlid? #28
Hi FL,

a pH of 7.2 is my standing pH after 24 hours. Tap nitrate after the same period reads at about 5-10.

This is the link to the Northumbrian Water site where it talks about Water Quality.

From Northumbria Water website.

Your water is Moderately Soft at 30mg/L as calcium

This should be the full report - not sure whats useful and what isnt really :S

Re: Which Dwarf Cichlid? #29
Should say that I wasnt very clear, the readings I didnt have were the hardness readings sorry.

Re: Which Dwarf Cichlid? #30
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.
