well, those are decent fish by small/shy/peaceful fish standards.

Otocincluses and chinese algae eaters and-- most of all corydoras-- are awesome, only problem is most large cichlids/ps would eat them :sad:

Cories are pretty tuff... I have one little fart living happily with some large cichlids like GT and Eartheater and a parrot that are like over 10 times it size and it doesn't get picked on. I wish you the same luck there too...

algae eater may get picked on, however when they get bigger they can become the aggresor themselves causing trouble... not really killing but chasing other fish...etc...

Best of luck

well, I got a 3" male Texas and a 2.5" venustus who will shred anything that doesn't fight back. I got a 1" cory in with them right now, and about 2 weeks ago I took a vacation and the fish were all fed at half-rations for a week.

When I got back home finally, that cory's fins were totally shredded. If the little guy wasn't coated in armor he would have been toast. When the other cichlids get bigger I have absolutely no doubt they'll gulp him down. He's an incredibly vivacious little guy, and I'd love to get some more buddies for him to school with, but within the next 3-6 months they might be fish food.

well I should have some new pics tommorrow!!!


unfortunatly these fish are not in them as I had already taken the film to be developed and it comes back tommorrow.

I am not too worried about these fish as the algea eaters and sharks are going with my piranhas, tetras and other algea eaters.

the corys are going with my other 6 corys making my mixed cory gang up to 8

and the botia is big enough to be OK with my tyre-track eel and my evil severum - so I'm not at all worried about them.

OK I realise that many of you may not be familiar with these species so:
