The first one to molt was killed by the other while it was recovering, so he didnt make it.
And then the one that was left seemed to have trouble with its molting and died last weekend.
Not sure where I went wrong. There's plenty of hiding spots for post-molt recovery. And I was feeding the same Crab Cuisine I feed my big crayfish, so there shouldnt have been any molting problems.
During the (roughly) one month that I had at least one in the tank with my corys, I did have one cory death. It didn't seem to be the result of a physical attack and the water parameters were normal, so again, Im not sure where I went wrong.
After observing them, however, I wouldnt have them with ADF
. The pygmy corys are fairly good about keeping track of their surroundings and are fast enough to get away. Its my understanding that ADF
have pretty poor eyesight and kind of slow.
