Starting over with Cories
Hi all. We just moved several states and I had to break down my 55 gallon tank completely. Gave away the fish and trashed the plants (no one was interested in them). So once my furniture arrives in a week or so I'll start over.
In my previous set- up, I didn't really have a focus. This time, I'd like to build my new set-up around Cory Catfish of some kind.
I do know to use a dark sand substrate. Once I switched from blue gravel and plastic plants to Eco-Complete and live plants, my fish were thrilled! So I'll do that again unless anyone suggests otherwise.
As far as tank mates, I've had neon tetras, swordtails, and platys as well as angels - which grew up and got aggressive. I also had a pearl gourami, which I liked.
What would be your suggestions as to tank mates? Also, what order should I stock my tank (once the fish less cycle is done)? I am thinking a large school of Cories so they'll be happy.
