This is so awesomely useful! Thanks! I did buy 4 albino cories yesterday and I have the bristlenose pleco and the Betta, so I probably should only add maybe ~4-6 more fish so that I don't over-stock, so I will find a group of those that I think are pretty and add them in after some time has passed with the new guys!

You are welcome.

Any of those listed that require a group should be a group of 6 minimum...so a smaller one, like the Cherry Barb, would probably be a good option...that is, if you like the cherry barb.

I have albino cories myself, I have 4 (I also have 4 of habrosus cory)...and I LOVE them!! They grow very fast, and are a blast to watch!

For your Bristlenose Pleco, think about adding some real driftwood to the tank, all though it isnt a major part of their diet like it is for a Clown Pleco, they do want it. Just a small piece would work for him to rasp on.

For the cories... I feed mine a staple of sinking shrimp pellets for bottom dwellers...I forget the brand, but they come in a baby pink and baby blue resealable bag...they love them! (They also eat veggie rounds, and tetramin granuals, as well as any leftover flakes or freeze-dried bloodworms that make it down to them.

Again, any questions, and I will be happy to help as best I can. Enjoy your tank and enjoy TFK!!!
