Ive had good luck with everything except Goldfish (lost to Ich) and Neons (apparently, I've had some very weak strains pass through my hands) and, a few years ago, Platies.

Ive had perfect luck with Ghost Shrimp, DG, and GBR. Guess i will count myself lucky on that front...

Really? I kept them successfully in my first tank. I even got babies from them.

I think KH is playing a factor but I need to test and be sure. I can't think of any other reason why

Hastatus cories. Although I think it was just bad stock. All 7 gone within 48hrs... Yet the endlers are doing extremely well... I think it was just bad stock.

Yeah hastatus are a little weird, it's like neons, sometimes they live and a lot of times they don't. Catfish usually come in with a few internals and if the store doesn't do a proper qt and you don't do a broad spectrum treatment in your qt, it's pretty much game over.

So I've read a few times now that when corys are stressed especially during bagging they give off toxins and those toxins end up poisoning everything in the bag including themselves and that's why many times they arrive DOA or die shortly after. Neither article could identify the toxin because not enough research has been done. Anyone else have thoughts on this? It may explain some things or it could be bonk, I don't know.

This doesn't have a lot to do with it, but they also have very spiky fins that i believe carry the poison; I've been pricked and it hurts for days! Julii Cories seem especially painful... Maybe the spike each other?? They are also known to poo bags...

Again, sorry for being off of the topic just thought it was interesting!


If money cant buy happiness, that why do I need a job? I mean, I should be getting these fish free, since I don't have to pay for happy...

Ah yes, the axillary gland secretion. They release a bacteriacidal chemical that is toxic to both conspecifics and other fish. I have a paper on this somewhere, you're my new forum best friend
