If you really want them and know a cheap way to ship I could pick some up for you at that price. Not sure if you'd save any money though...

I can add video after I put the little man to sleep and figure out how to add a video...do I have to post to YouTube and link to it?

Yeah I wouldn't be saving any money as I don't need that many! But thanks for asking!

Yeah YouTube for the videos or TapaTalk....

Just watch how much you are feeding and also the parameters. Adding that many at once could cause a mini cycle type thing.

Congrats for a nice large school of the Ember Tetras!

Male Cories are slimmer and the female will have a body more shaped like a broad triangle. But it does sound like you could have 2 varieties, Emerald Brochis or Green Corydoras aeneus.

Pictures and video

Ok, here are some photos, and here is a video link. Hopefully its enough to identify the cory.

I apologize, despite the cost of my camera, I am unable to get a single decent photo out of it. Much harder to photograph an aquarium than I expected. Its basically impossible without a video camera or a video lens or macro lens - of course I have none of these things. Sigh. I might be able to get some better photos if I add a second led to the tank so I will try that later.

In other frustrating news, the anubias I purchased was apparently infected with some sort of fungus and all the rhizomes are rotting away. In addition, they have caused anubias that I've had for over a year to start rotting. I am...whats the word...

Can you check your PH?

I understand the Anubias overall as a group don't care for low pH say 7 and under very much and can have a melt. Most prefer 7.5 and above.(according to what Dustin told me when he visited our aquarium club and was selling awesome vining Anubias I have lower PH and can grow nana and petite just fine and kill the pointy leave ones like Hastifolia).

If all your cories look like the ones in the pictures, you have bronze Aeneus Corydoras which should make you stocking much more reasonable!

Lots of action in there! Lovely tank! Can you take a picture from the front? I'm interested to see how the fish look with the tank itself.

My pH is at 7.5. Water is filtered - not Reverse osmosis and hit with Excel twice a week and low doses of flourish. Well I got a refund at least...

My fish are so tiny that with a full tank picture it looks empty. Lol. But yes there's lots of activity. Is it normal for cory to be this active? My duplicareus aren't nearly as active as the aeneus cory seem to be.

Bronze cories are active for sure they might also be getting ready to breed! I used to have an Aeneus Cory that was 7 years old, even he was fairly active! These guys live forever, lol

Update: the tank is running well and it is VERY active. I had a brief die off of anubias plants but was able to stop it before I lost my plants, now they are growing well again. I've added three bushy nose albino pleco (one dissappeared and is assumed eaten or on vacation).

I am going to add a few nerite snails when I can find some at the lfs for a reasonable cost.

The dwarf lily are not growing like I hoped so I'm looking to add something else that doesn't need a deep rooting. Any suggestions there (no ferns as I have plenty already)
