I splurged!
I got 6 peppered cory catfish today.
Name of the shoal yet to be determined.

I wanted pandas but for the first time keeping them i thought peppered would be good.
No pictures until later, when my tank has plants and some driftwood.

Yes, and a nice species to start with IMO. This will really date me, but the first cory I had was Corydoras paleatus [peppered cory] and in those days it and the plainer C. aeneus were all you could find. Not only a nice looking cory, but quite robust and adaptable, possibly by nature but also it has been commercially raised for many years. Good choice.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
