Kirt, do you think you can stock Pseudomugil gertrudae too?

Yeah, I'm not intending on mixing them, and if I did, it would just be for QT. I have plenty of sterbai for my big tank that I'll be getting later this year, and hopefully, as they grow, I'll be getting many more babies. The guy I got these from breeds his in tap water, so...

I think I should probably wait until I move and get my big tank set up, which will empty my 29 which will be turned into a "dwarf" tank with microrasboras, dwarf gouarmis and dwarf corries

The last time I was in, he had a few of these lovelies in one of his tanks. I was tempted to pick them up myself, but decided on the "Rummynose Rasbora" (sawbwa resplendens).

He also sold us a two beautiful male Pseudomugil Signifer a while back, who are in our 120 g tank! I'd like a few more to be honest, preferably females, since their "dancing" (if you've ever seen a Signifer, you'll know what I mean) is just gorgeous, and I can only imagine how much more it would become with some females to show off for!

My request, other than some female Signifer's, would be more Goo Obo Gudgeons. I think that, aside from my clown loaches, these have to be my favorite fish ever. My husband and I love them so much that we're converting our 30g into a gudgeon tank as soon as we relocate it's current inhabitants.

Like Kirt always says, JUST ASK Seriously, you ask and it shows up soon enough. He's listening. When was the last time LFS owner did that

Exactly. I don't even go anywhere else now. And it certainly doesn't make sense to order online.

What would look better in a 40 gal. breeder tank? The dwarf cory species, or regular cories, is: sterbai, pandas...etc?

Unless you get a lot of dwarf cories, I'd go with the bigger ones like panda cories.

Panda cories are awesome. Only thing is that you're going to have to keep in mind the price difference between the dwarf cories and the bigger ones.

See, I prefer a big school of the dwarf ones in a smaller tank. I used to "collect" cories, and still have a few dozen in the 180g but they look better to me in at least a 4 foot long tank. In a smaller setup, a big shoal of the dwarf ones are just adorable to watch, because unlike the big cories, they school pretty well in a tight group and go up and down the glass, quite a spectacle. My others tended to separate into twos and threes and just chill.

I do like Pandas, and sterbais, too.
