    Hi all,

    I currently have a 60L tetra aquaart explorer tank stocked with 4 Cory’s, 1 guppy, 4 amano shrimp and numerous baby ramshorn’s.

     

    The Cory’s I have are 2 albino and 2 peppered, I know now I shouldn’t have mixed species but the LFS I got them from said it would be fine when I was a novice fish keeper and I didn’t research.

     

    I’ve found today that my water hardness is on the very high end at 276ppm+ and other forums have said that it’s too hard for my Cory’s to survive in, however, looking in the knowledge base here I’ve seen that they can thrive into the mid 200s for hardness, would my water be considered too hard or would they acclimate to this? The LFS I purchased them from also have the same level of hardness but I’m unsure how long they were there before I bought them.

    I’m also looking at what I could potentially add to the tank in the future so any recommendations on small ish fish that handle high hardness would be beneficial.

    Many thanks.

    I have never had Corys.
