Ok Frank, if you put photos for reference with that list, your site will ROCK! : )

Love love love corys! My next tank is going to have lots of them. They are wonderful, playful and I love their eyes.

Can I mix corys and still have them school together? Example:Albino, Panda, Green?

No need to reinvent the wheel. Ian Fuller has pics of every Cory on his site at corycats.com.

Corys should be kept in groups of 4 to 6 per specie. Different species will shoal together, on ocassion, but will usually keep to themselves, unless frightened. Having 2 specimens of 3 different species, in my opinion, is not the way to go. Better to have 6 of one type if you want to see them at their best. Remember - your mileage may vary. - Frank

I've got 4 types of cories in my tank, pandas, peppered, green laser, and bronze. Even though the green laser and bronze are the same species, they still don't school together that much. More often than not, the green laser is off on his own hiding out.

I guess I will stick to my Albinos then. They are my favorite, but I do love the Panda and the green ones.

Coryologist, can you tell me if Albino Corys are blind? I swear mine can't see a darn thing and only move if they are touched or if they sense food nearby.

There is strong belief that albinos are blind at birth and don't gain decent eyesight until a week or so, but there is only anecdotal evidence to support this. That being said, your fish could be blind and lead a totally normal and healthy long life. I wouldn't fret. Since the food is being supplied and it is in a limited area, you have nothing to worry about. I doubt your Cory is blind. More than likely, just content and relaxed. - Frank

6 of each... maybe in my next tank. The BIG one. I have decided corys are my favorite species. I have lots that I really like, but the corys can't be beat IMO!

She seems very content. I love to watch her resting on her belly, or doing one of her runs to the top. Love the long barbells, and the way they move their eyes.

Ah, I'm in love...
