Here is a picture of our new albino cory cats prior to their release in our tank. Cory cats are perhaps my favorite fish, particularly the albino ones. We prefer to get our fish as small as possible and watch them grow.
In our tank right now, we have glowlight tetras, red skirt tetras, australian rainbowfish, cory cats (albino & bronze), otos, one female betta (we named her Pat), and possibly one bristlenose pleco.
Our pleco is very mysterious. We purchased her in early 2006, and we would see her regularly. Then we didn't see her for about 4 months, and we worried that perhaps she had died and the scavengers in our tank had eaten her body. But then we saw her some more! Our last confirmed sighting of her was December 29, 2006, so it's been a little over 6 months since we've seen her. I still search every day and hope that I'll catch a glimpse!
Our tank really isn't gigantic -- 75 gallons -- but we have a ton of plants and pieces of driftwood where the fish can hide, so it's almost impossible to get an accurate count of what's in there.
