Went to the shop to get some blister packs of food and a nerite snail 🐌. They didn't have any snails so I bought some friends for the Cory tank. Rineloricaria Sp. (L010a). More commonly know as red lizard whiptails. They have particularly good colour to them

The original Weitzmani have all now passed, I have 4 left on this morning's count that have all survived in the main tank. Goes to show when I'm trying to raise fry I'm doing something significantly wrong if they can survive in the main tank. It's been suggested that these could have actually been a former supply breeding group given their size as an alternative to wilds. Either way, a little disappointing as they all had different symptoms which only affected the original 6 and no other species. I tried interpet anti bacteria (I think that's what it's called) and thought it had worked to save the last two, but alas.

Operation Corydoras has now been diversified slightly with the addition of a pair of Apistogramma Agassizii "neon blue". Going to have a big clean up of the tank to get rid of dead leaves at some point in the next week :)
