i havent got a camera however ill be borrowing my mums and ill post some then. when i do ill give you a wee pm to let you know ive posted them if you like.

i have plants in the tank, they seem to quite like scurrying about among them. and i do have a wee cave thing in the tank but its more for decoraton. one of my cories however seems really to like it. shes constantly in and out it and "cleaning" the outside of it. shes the only one that bothers though.

if youre looking for more active cories go for the bronze/albino ones, if youre looking for prettier ones go for pandas imo. ive got 3 broonze and 3 albino and i love them. cories are def my favourite fish :)

The thing about cories and caves: If you have caves for the cories, they'll never use them, but they'll be out and swimming around where you can see them. If you don't have caves, the cories will hide in the plants and you'll never see them. The security of having nearby overhead cover emboldens them.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

hm thats good to know! i would deffinatly give them caves, if it was a fish, i would want a cave ha i visited my brother this weekend and he has a 75 gallon community set up and he had a few of the bronze ones. He has a big castle thing in the middle and they were in there a lot of the time, but i did see them come out and scavenge the bottom, they were so cute! =)

OK ive decided im going to either set up my 10 gallon or maybe buy a 15gallon or a 20 gallon long (my favorite size tank but its a little big)
BUT i have one problem...in the only room i can put them in it gets about 90 degrees during the summer, its at the back of the house and the sun just beats through my windows ALL day. I dont have central air and i just keep my main floor cool with air conditioners. Last summer my GOLDFISH tank was 90degrees!! and their suppse to be in pretty cool water but i had no idea it would get that hot. My goldfish never developed any problems, and the corys are suppose to be in warmer water than goldfish, but who knows the corys could be less hardy than goldfish??
