I wish my 5 trilineatus were more outgoing. If something moves within 3 feet of the tank they vanish in the blink of an eye. It's extremely frustrating. Would bumping up the school to 8 help? Any tips?

Try adding a few. When my DG is in a mood he harasses mine horribly. He had them lined up execution style last night. He was about to go into timeout.

Okay, I'll get 3 more. I'm getting new fish next week for my birthday (YAY!) so I'll pick them up then. If the DG ends up a bully I have plenty of extra 10 gallons I can house him in.

CinnamonPearl -you just don't always know what the magic number might be, hope that is it. That makes a nice size group. If that doesn't do it I would bet on the DG not playing nice in the sandbox!

How is your plant cover?

Sad news today. One of my shy sterbais died. checked my water and all was good, so maybe it was just it's time. Strange thing though. Now the other shy sterbai isn't as shy. It actually came out and greeted me during feeding time and has been playing with some of the larger platy fry. It seems like now that it's the only Cory in the tank, it is happier. Weird huh!?!

Maybe it it was just sad for the illness or end of times for the other one.

Mine look after each other. Maybe all Corys do that?
