    Albino Corys, Cardinal Tetras
  1. Hi, I have an Albino Cory that I noticed this morning has a lump under it and is swimming around erratically and kinda madly. The tank has 3 Cardinal Tetras as well. I took the video just prior to posting. I have added some Melafix in appropriate quantities too. I’m mostly wondering if my housemate and I have been feeding it too much. It’s likely getting one algae wafer a day..... I have read things on other international fish forums about shelled peas..... Any advice would be much appreciated! Levels yesterday: pH: 7-7.2 Ammonia: 0 Nitrites: 0 Nitrates: 40-80 (I added some Refresh to hopefully help with this) Thanks Shannon 487B40BB-6418-420D-A861-4B8FDD83FEAD.MOV
  2. 👋 My house mate was given a small aquarium and a few fish and I’ve been helping look after them over the past few months. I have grown quite attached so have bought a bigger tank, and am nearly ready to add fish to it. Have been following advice from an awesome staff member at my local Pet Barn and using ‘Setting up a tropical aquarium: week by week’ by Stuart Thraves from my local library, trying to get my head around the nitrogen cycle! We had two Corys, one I had to euthanise due to it losing all its fins and having air bladder issues and not improving after three weeks of treatment. Now the other Cory is bloated and swimming madly, so here I am! Once approved I’ll post full details and a video in the appropriate area. Thanks 🙂 Shannon
