    You probably have central heating? What is the room temp?

    Progress.

    Pandas and Napoensis moved to the right 60 cm tank. Slightly bigger (higher)

    Swapped the left 60 cm. for a 80 cm.
    The 60 cm appeared to have a leak 3 cm under the top.

    Next steps.

    Longer hoses (bought check) for the canister to connect the cannister to the tank above right. That tank is for my C.venezuelanus. "Threw" in rocks and plants so needs some rearranging first.

    Filling and "scaping" left under, adding a heatger. There will be the left over warmwater Corys (Sterbai / Concolor) and add some new ones [​IMG]

    Thanks Maria.
    C.napoensis is one of the most underestimated awesome (midsized) Corys.

    @Cesar has setup a planted tank and we were thinking of putting some corries in but im not sure if they uproot the plants a lot or not
    Letting the plants establish themselves aa bit and then we might try

    They won't uproot plants (maybe only when just planted / with a few roots.

    They are so much fun hahahaha

    Thanks @DoubleDutch

    Thats what i thought.. i actually said to him your tanks are planted but a good idea to let the plants start anchoring themselves properly first
    So we will definitely give it a go

    I haven’t found corys to present any issues with plants whatsover. Granted, I haven’t tried full high tech carpets etc. Bit for the type of thing I do theynot a nuicence at all. Really love them!

    They're clearly feeling fine in the new tank (properly fed again)

    Think it is pre-spawning behaviour.

    Tanks are looking awesome @DoubleDutch , congrats! Those C. napoensis are stunning.

    @MariaS cories are fine with pretty much all plants, but i found they did dig under carpets in search of food. If Caesar is going with a carpet, it might be better to let it fully cover an area first. Though, the cories i had thought that under the carpet of Glosso was the best place for spawning, so maybe not a negative?
