Whats Recommended For Tank Mates?

Post by 2tall on Tue Aug 10, 2010 12:02 pm

I'm planning on splitting my 37L tank for my two c/t's. I'm thinking pygmy corys on side and shrimp on the other side. How many would be ideal and I'm open to other suggestions?

I think half of 37l might not be enough for pygmy cories. From what i've seen they're really active swimmers and that might not be enough room for them.

Shrimp are cool though Very Happy

To bad on the corys. I suspect you're right as my peppered cory is all over the 37L tank. How many shrimp would work on one and ADFs on the other?

I should find a home for the cory as hes the only one from what I've learned. Such a nice fish though!

Yeah cories love being in groups Smile

Depends what shrimp you fancy? They are very low bio load so won't affect your filter. I'd start off with something inexpensive in case the betta takes a shine and fancies a snack Rolling Eyes

I'd have 1-2 ADF on the other side - they'll enjoy hidey holes and will need to be handfed their bloodworm dinner or else the betta will eat it all Smile
