    You better breed those aquanatix. I've been hunting for them for ages.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I'm doing my best stormhawk...They're pretty young when i got them,just hope I don't lose anymore of them.
    If raising the fries is similar to the pygmaeus I should have a smal chance of getting some soon!*crossing fingers and prays*

    Same behaviour as the pygmaeus. They love BBS. The fry will take microworms at birth.

    I used to feed my hastatus with live tubifex and BBS, and they were always fat. Sadly I don't have them anymore.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Sadly,tubifex are pretty hard for me to get though i do agree with you that their one of the better foods to condition corydoras.
    Sadly I'm down to about 20 pieces,been losing the smaller and weaker ones over the weeks.
    I've been feeding Hikari's daphnia and occasional micro pellets...not sure if it's a food issue?sigh~

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I'm keeping a batch of C. Adolfoi. But sadly that the batch is not pairing up to spawn, was told by a few good cory friends that there are only 2 males and 8 females. Don't think can breed them, sign...
    Fish keeping is not a good hobby unless you received support from your family to keep them.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    The reccomended ratio for breeding is 1F & 2M.
    You already have the combination why sigh??
    Pump them up and place the breeding fish into a separate 1 ft tank.
    Once they breed remove them from the tank.
    Its much easier than rolling the eggs out of the main tank!

    I think I might have too much of females around.

    Got 4 more C.duplicareus from the east side fish farm. More complete now with 6 C.duplicareus, 8 C.Sterbai and 2 C.aeneus.
    See whether I can more species at affordable prices.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I've got 2 C. Duplicareus that I bought at different time, the yellow coloration seems to be different where I tends to be very orangey and one can tell is yellow

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Hi bro, are those corydoras hastatus? Heard that they are very hard to find locally nowadays.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Hi bro, some cories are easier to keep than others. Those that are more hardy should be bronze cory, pepper cory and sterbai cories.

    Btw, what type of cory do you keep?

    Sterbai and pepper. Does temperature play a part, mine is 28-29. However GH is 12!
    Ph6.4, kh5, ammonia 0, no3 30.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    For my tank the temperature is usually around 26 degrees. So far so good, initially bought 7 cories but only one died after the first day. For the past two months or so there are no casualties.

    Corydoras die easily if they don't have 'parking' space

    I found that Sterbai are more hardy than pepper somehow....
    Feed them with blood worms and they will grow fat and strong, they simply love blood worms

    Hi bro, can elaborate on what you mean by 'parking' space? Do you mean space to rest at night or a peaceful spot without too much disturbance?

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    They need sandy and flat surface. They don't seem to live long in tanks with full of grassy grass like hair grass 100% tank bottom surface
