I'm posting this in the hope that coryologist will be able to help, but anyone who knows something would be very much appreciated.
I have had a 15g lying about for some time now and am eventually going to set it up.
I love cories and want to make it a cory only tank and hope that they will breed.
I don't know if I want normal siized cories, perhaps sterbai, or good old plain bronze/albino cories, or whether I want to go with a smaller species so I can have a larger group of them.
So if I go for the smaller species I can't decide between corydoras hastatus or corydoras pygmaeus. They're both ridiculously cute, so that's not a factor. I mainly would like to know about the hardiness of each type, and the ease of breeding each type. If anyone can give me any info it would be really appreciated.
Also, in a 15g how many would be a good number? If I go with normal sized cories I was thinking 6-8, and if I go with one of the smaller species I'm not really sure how many at all I should add. It will be a planted tank and will be only cories inhabiting the tank.
