Found someone breeding Duplicareus nearby for £4 each, going to get a group of 8, I'd imagine that's probably enough for the tank size? (190 litre corner)

Tank is set at 25c with Cardinals, Bolivian Rams and a BN. Think the Duplicareus will be ok at 25 or should I tweak it down a wee bit?

I would tweak the temperature down to 24.5C as a good compromise.
I know it's only half a degree cooler but it will make a difference and maybe a slight difference on the electric bill too.

All the best

I was thinking the same with the 24.5 aswell.

Guy who's selling me them is currently keeping them at 26 which from what I read is their upper limit so at least they're coming down a wee bit in temp.

Duplicareus. £3 each seems a fair price too.
Great price Bri, snap the sellers hand off ;]
I seriously doubt these pics do right to the way these twi corys look alike.

I know Stephen but what I mean is that the colordifference in the pics isn't as big as the pics suggest.

Side-by-side (images from planetcatfish) Adolfoi (left) Duplicareus (right)
The obvious difference is the thickness of the shoulder bar from the dorsal fin to the tail.

Got a group of 8 F1 juveniles looking lively except for one a bit listless & leaning to one side not sure if maybe it's just not travelled well or not, think I should try them with crushed peas incase it's possibly swim-bladder related?

Also got the temp to 24.5 after some footery heater tweaking.

Probably more to do with stress than swim bladder, have you tried Melafix to help prevent stress during transport and/or acclimatisation?

How do you do it during acclimation? I might have to look at doing that in future. It's the first time I've even bought fish from somewhere other than a store.

The wee one can swim about when it needs to just at a bit of an odd angle, wondering if it can recover from something like that it it's kinder to euthanise? Half expecting to find it dead at some point but don't want to see it struggle.

Trying to get a picture but they keep shooting off.

Sneaked a pic of the others:
