LOVE them

Waiting to find dwarf Cories where I can get a good deal. The lfs has the Pygmy and Habrosus sometimes when they are available from their supplier. Now that my big tank is up, I have to make decisions about the other tanks and what will go in them!!! But there WILL be a big bunch of dwarf Cories!!!

They are usually around 2.-2.49, depends on if the lfs does a 4 for $XX.00 special.

When I was trying to get them to spawn, one would go to the top and nose-dive right at the "latch-on" spot. Missed every time. Landed too hard and would face plant in the sand. I could totally hear it going "Dangit! So close! I'm gonna get it this time!" And repeat exact same procedure. With exact same results.

Nah. Just cranky aroused fish. Before that they like to play "All Aboard the Cory Cat Bus!" They're so weird. I feel bad for Lurch when they do that. He's losing his eyesight so they have to signal him when it's time to turn. It's cute to see them figure out how to take care of the blind one, but I still feel bad watching him all confused cuz he can't find his friends unless they tap him.
