I've been pretty busy with work, so I've been lagging here on updates. Thankfully, I've been keeping up with my tank maintenance and things are overall going well. Since the last update there have been a few changes:
Panda cory catfish just really are not the hardy fish that people say they are. Sorry, they're just not. They're so spazzy and dumb that they will willingly rip off their barbels while eating. What a silly fish. Once they're gone, the barbels are gone. They won't grow back (despite the one out of thirty people on the net that says they will). I now feed mine in a glass bowl so that this doesn't happen again. I've got one Panda Cory that has no barbels and an empty hole where his mouth should be. :(
