Cory Fry at 3 Weeks

Greetings All - For those who are interested, I have placed a pic of my albino Cory fry in my photo gallery. Of the 125 that hatched, it appears that around 100 or so are doing just fine, although I do need to get a few out of that filter, pretty soon.

I have just obtained 3 dozen beautiful Corydoras sterbae which I plan to beef up and breed. I think that they are the most beautiful of all the Cory cats - but that's just me. Also, they school like no other Cory species. The 3 dozen stick like glue to one another. A very impressive sight. - Guppyman

Great photo, Guppyman! Thanks for sharing. Your other photos are nice too. It looks like you have a very nice life. I'm a little jealous :]

Yeah. You may yet make me like fancy guppies. Never been a big fan, but your pics of them show how stunning they can be!

Cory Fry

Hi juliemichelle. It's a standard Lee's large corner filter. The marrbles are used to weigh it down as well as providing minimal bio filtration. I use large filter pad material on top to stop the large particles and biomedia in the middle for strong bio filtration. I use 2 per 10 G. tank and replace them altermately to maintain the "cycle." - Guppyman

Hi madasafish. I was telling fishfreek that it seems on this site guppies are regarded simply as something to feed to your Oscars, etc. I can't explain it - but I always come back to them - even though I love all tropical fish. - Guppyman

Cory Cats

Hi Sati. Thanks for the kind words. I get a lot of people telling me they wish they had my life. That's silly. but I understand the sentiment. I invite you here any Saturday to do 20% water changes on close to 200 tanks. YIKES!!! It's fun though. Just the dog, the cat the fish and myself. Now THAT is worth wishing for. No humanoids - Guppyman.
