some small tetras maybe? not too small though, from my experience really little species tend to be somewhat delicate (i had a shoal of neons once that all died, some got sucked into the filter, some jumped out of the tank and some just died mysteriously...)
medium-sized tetras like rummy-nosed or glowlight tetras might be ok. you'd need to get a shoal of about six.
how many corys are you planning on having? and have you got a soft substrate (sand or smooth gravel), because rough substrates can hurt their barbels. :)

Im probably getting a tank in a bout a month but i want to research be4 so i know wat im doing!! I may get and eheim aquastaar 60 or 80. I will use sand or wery small rounded substrate for the corys because of there delicate barbels. I am thinking of getting a few platys, some green snaketail guppys and about 5 hopefully corydorus jullis. Also maybe a clown plecostumus. Thnx agen

um, i wouldn't personally reccomend the platies/guppies. corys and plecos prefer neutral or somewhat acid water, guppies and platies like harder, more alkaline water and won't survive in the kind of environment the other fish need to stay healthy. i learned this the hard way back when i had an amazon themed tank and put guppies in it. they lived for about two days that's a particularly bad case, but i still wouldn't reccomend putting fish that have different ph and hardness requirements together. i'll leave this to someone with more knowledge of platies and guppies though. mosquitofish (which are a noxious species in some parts of the world, and rather drab) and can tolerate a much wider range of conditions, and i've kept them with corys for ages. they are sweet little fish, even if they don't have much colour. i caught mine from a local pond in a park haha :) oh and another thing, if you keep livebearing fish, whether it be guppies, platies, mollies, mosquitofish, whatever...they breed VERY prolifically. althoguh my mosquitofish females always seemed to be pregnant, only two of the fry they had over the years survived, i don't know what happened to the others but i suppose they got eaten.
we can continue this convo in another forum if you work out how to post your own, as i get the impression the mods wont be happy cos we're going off the topic of corys...

So I literally came here to post a picture of my juli's fat belly. I'm no expert, but my experience is that he (she)'s the overeater. I'm certain from what they left behind that I've overfed them in the past day. Looks like today is fasting day.

However, I am curious to know what the difference between being a fatty and being laden with eggs would look like. :) so if you find good stuff in your research I'd love to see it.

I'd also be interested to know about your tank setup, how many cories you have and what type. Have they bred in your tank previously? Mainly just cause I'm a nerd like that...

(ps- do you have a picture? :)

Question Cory or Oto

I am in a dilemma. I haven't yet introduced any catfishes to the 4 platies and single tetra in my 29g. I have snails and am starting to battle them with lettuce overnight. I originally thought of plecos, but the size changed my mind. That leaves cory or oto. I also really like black fin cories. Any thoughts on the choice? I also want to add gouramis at sometime and trying to decide if I want black neon tetras. I'm also very concerned about overstocking the tank
