Corydoras

Picked up some hybrid Corydoras about two years ago and they're still doing well in a heavily planted 55 G. They look like a cross between Adolph's Corys and Rust Corys. Larger than Pandas, but have similar markings as Pandas. The difference is, the vertical stripes on these hybrids is orange, not black. As I recall, the pet store owner called them "Orange Saddles", because one of markings is right under the dorsal fin.

Just changed out half the tank water, as I do every week.

Picked up a RAOK of really stunningly pretty cobalt and red endlers from a fellow SCAPE member today. They are in QT right now.

Thanks

Those are males, I only have 2 like that, and about 6 larger females and about 10-12 mixed (m/f) fry and juvies. Overall we got about 20 fish. I'm sure we'll have gravid females soon.

Those were in the previous owner's setup amd his pic.

I'll snap some pics after I initial QT, they are going I to their own, cycled, tank soon.

Yesterday, cleaned two filters from the 12G and 6.6G Edge tanks.

Day before found a dead Mystery Snail.

Trying to get everything cleaned up before I am away for 4 weeks. Very nervous but, hoping some preparation will make everything go smoothly.

I need to catch up in my additions! A bit ago I added a red tail loach and two African dwarf frogs, and more recently I've added 3 mollies (2 are lyre tail) and 3 tiny endlers.

I also have a couple feeder fish for the cycling process in my 20 gallon. (Early stages in prep for an axolotl).

Did a partial water change on my ten gallon. Found a mystery snail in there today. It is tiny! Must have come from the plant we added a few weeks ago. Started a fishless cycle on our new 20 gallon long yesterday. Waiting patiently for it to be ready to move everything over

You can jump start to instant cycle your new tank by moving some media from your established tank to "seed" the new tank.

Just make sure you condition your water if you are using tap water to remove chlorine, etc. because chlorine can kill the beneficial bacteria in your seed media.

Good luck!

Staring at my tank, I see tiny little jumping things.

Its not a snail!

I wonder if it could be ghost shrimp fry=) There seems to be a lot of them. I hope they don't harm my tank.
