10 gallon tank update!!!

Recommended Posts

Blazepelt

So I recently added some nice wood and rocks to my 10 gallon aquarium it’s looking great and all the fish look happy.

The guppies are going great I have a trio of Emerald Moscow’s both females are pregnant and one is due to drop in a week or so.

I also bought some Corydoras and am wondering about a weird silver blob on one’s stomach I believe she is the only female as she is larger than the others anyone have any idea on what it is? She is an albino bronze Corydora. 

Here’s some photos:

Well if it is a female I guess there’s a chance that she could be holding eggs. Just a guess.

Found the following photo on the internet, comparing males to females. You can see that bit of silver in the female.

Yeah I haven’t been able to find anything on eggs with just a quick search.

I just realised all of the Corys have the bulging silver belly is it a disease or are they constipated?

Always good to get some photos!!!!!!

I am not an expert on Corydora, I've never had one but have doe a bit of looking around. I would say that the fish looks pregnant and it looks 'alarming' as it is a grey/black colour on an albino fish, but most cory are grey so it wouldn't notice as much if at all?

I found this video which may be helpful,

There was another very short but not very good video where they put the pregnant fish in a breeder box and then when the fish had the eggs they put the fish back in the tank. That would make getting the eggs a lot easier?

Hopefully the fish are just pregnant and not sick?

Wow would that mean he has 4 pregnant fish? Maybe you need to get a male now Blaze and get the eggs fertilised! I thought cories were a little harder to breed, but that would be awesome. I don’t know if @KillieOrCory is lurking and has an opinion from experience?

Yeah I don’t think they’re all holding eggs but it would be cool if they did.

      Maybe around 10 or so I know that many people claim to have increased baby survival rate by dosing various baby foods or Bacter AE.  What has your survival rate been?

      No plants ‘require’ CO2 so to speak, but it helps boost growth. Flourish excel is basically bottled CO2, so you could do that. Most red plants will just grow a bit greener without CO2. I have some variety of Ludwigia repens, and it stays pretty red, as the leaves reach higher toward the light. But the best thing to do is just try something. Test it out, see what works and what doesn’t, because nobody‘s tanks are the same.

      Ok does it require CO2 also what about Ludwigia Repens Rubin super red?

      I use two 24 watt fluorescent tubes on my regular 29, and am just able to grow red plants. That’s 48 watts of light, from one pink and one blue tube, so your 37 on a tall tank might not be strong enough when it hits the bottom. If you end up dosing excel (I do and it works fine for me) then maybe try Alternanthera Reineckii, or it’s mini version (also known as AR Mini). I’ve had success with that.

      Many red plants require white and red light, could be LED or tube, power isn't important, but need enough reach the bottom, but most important co2 is needed, or they don't last.
