My stock is 2 N. Brichardi and 2 Green Cory Cats.

The 2 Brichardi's were the last two at the LFS. They seen like a pair. They hang together, stay in the same cave and there's no aggression. Time will tell if they'll have fry.

My set-up is a 20 gallon Long, Whisper 40 filter (much louder then I would like), Jaguar heater, black quarts sand, small Mexican river rocks, unknown large rocks.

I just put the Cories in the tank. If they start getting beat up, I have a new home for them. So far the Brichardi leave them alone.

I didn't take it as criticism. Thank you for your thoughts. I still have lots to learn and any help along the way is much appreciated.

but ya i second the anubias / java fern. u can get em pretty cheap at your lfs. also 2nd the brichardi caution. u probably wont be there when they do breed.. (if its a pair) but when they do those cories are gonna go with a quickness.. like overnight death kinda deal. brichardi push unwanteds up to the top corners and this a corey simply will not do. so its pretty much death sentence.. sooner or later lolz. GL to ya. sry to bum you out.

Also in regards to the filter being loud, you could fill the tank up above the black rim a little, it would make the water quieter, and also would make the tank look nicer :thumb:

Thanks for everyones responses. I've noticed the cories fins are being nipped. They're getting a new home tomorrow. I'm going to checkout the lfs plants on monday. I really need something to put some color in the tank. The filter has a vibrating plastic noise. There is a lot of vibration when the lid is on. I put some extra plastic hose around the edges of the lid and that took care of that. Again thank you for everyones responses.
