My blackfin sorta hangs out with my 3 peppered cories a lot. the blackfin was a rescue from PetsMart and I was a little concerned, but I caught them the other day in a tight diamond formation. three peppereds in the front and sides and the blackfin in the back. they love to poke around together too.

My blackfin is calmer and less active than my peppered cories though

hope that helps. :D

Fish have taken over my house. I threw away my couch to make room for another 125 gallon.

Alexis, you should be just fine mixing most species of cories. I havent had a problem yet doing it. the only problem i could see would be activity level differences but thats a minimal problem.

Nice avitar btw.

Mine shoal together and I have 4 Julii (c. Trinlineatus), 1 panda and 1 albino. They also shoal with the BN pleco and the otos. Don't seem all that particular in my tanks anyway.

i have 1 bronze and 3 albino(albino bronze)but the bronze prefers the company of two salfin plecos so asume color plays a part

Different cories in the same shoal is ok but it's best to have at least six of each.

I had a tank with 2 green, 2 peppered, 2 spotted, 3 panda, and 2 adolfoi cories. I hoped they would form a neat mixed species shoal. Interactions within species were VERY common and I would often see the pairs swimming and foraging together. However, I rarely saw any interaction between species. I like the shoal effect, so I am moving toward a similar number of total fish, but just one or two species.

i have 3 albino corys and 3 bronze. they all seem to shoal together quite the thing but i am very new to keeping fish so i could be misinterperating their behaviour. when they rest, they dont seem to do it as a group, rather as pairs of maybe 3 at a time but often i see an albino and a bronze lying together resting for example. hope this helps.

I actually think the albinos are still bronze cories(Corydoras aeneus) except they lack the pigment and are albinos, of course. Both are still the same species.

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.
