Corydoras metae (Bandit cory)

I have a 38 gallon tank (36 x 20 x 12), currently still cycling. My pH will probably end up being 8.0, as my other cycled tank finished off that way and has remained the same. I keep it at 75 degrees and the only other tankmates for the time being would be platies. Would Bandit corys be a good fit? My lfs doesn't have the best selection in the world and I've researched the other species they have but they all seem to like soft water with a much lower pH. I should mention that I got my platies, both tanks, from the same store and they have had no problems whatsoever with my water. If not the Bandit's, any suggestions?

I would look into what is causing your pH to end up at 8.0. What is the pH of your tapwater?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

My tapwater pH is 8 as well. I have plastic plants and java moss and gravel substrate. My platies are fine, but I don't want to risk other fish just to make myself happy.
