    Need help on this,

    I got myself some corydoras sterbai few days back. Wondering will they be able to clean up the mosquito larvae breeding in tank? Will they eat up the apisto fries/eggs?

    thanks.

    Hi bro, i believe the corys will help to clean up both the larvae and apisto eggs.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I think the mosqito larva might be moving too fast for the Cory, guppies might be more useful

    If the fries are still wriggling, they may get eaten. If they are already free swimming, they should be fine.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Hi I am new to keeping Cory. I bought six so far and I think 2 has died. Can someone advise me the feeding regime for Cory? I actually has a planted tank and algae grow frequently. I have not fed them for two weeks assuming that they will look for plant matters and debris to eat. I bought my first bottom feeding disc pellets this week and found them to relish it. Should they be fed daily? I was hoping they help in eating the debris at the bottom.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    It's a good thing that you go ahead to feed them with disc pellets. They are scavenger but they will not eat debris, they only search for edible food that was sinked to the bottom. In a way, they will help to maintain water quality by preventing food decay at the bottom of the tanl. They are also not algae eater, it may be better if you try to get some Otto, SAE or Nerite Snails to take care of the algae.

    You should have done more research before getting your cories.Like other fish they need feeding regularly & cannot survive otherwise.

    seanang168, feed them with sinking pellet daily. also, be sure to give them bottom with open space for swimming. they will flourish for you.

    Heard that they require lower temperature, I don't dare to try as I do not have fan nor chiller

    O no. I have them in my community tank between 28-32C. Hopefully they can adapt to it. So far have them for coming to 2 weeks.
