I wish you the best of luck! Hope you enjoy your tank!

Sorry everyone. I'm gone. I can't use the forum anymore. My health issues are too much. I'll miss you all and I will return some day, just not on this account.

Ok I'll see what Ill do with my other cory but I think ill take him/her back and rather get some bronze cories.

I want to move my cardinals from my smaller tank into my 29g so that would be 13 cardinals. Could I still get away with 8-10 glo light tetras or should I rather just go with 20 cardinals?
Re the cory, you can mix species. They will all socialize together with no trouble, and as this one is established in your tank I wold leave him (unless for some reason you don't like it) and add 3-4 others of whatever species.

The bronze corys are sometimes actually Brochis not Corydoras (look very similar) and they grow much larger. Make sure it is a true cory. There are many spotted/mottled varieties that look nice together.

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

Thank you very much for this information =D. Yes my LPS generally doesn't stock alot of one species of cory so I might be better off going with 3 others species (unless I can find the same XD). I didn't really want to take him/her back which is a relief to hear that he/she will be fine to mix, he/she has mixed with others in the past.

Oh I never knew about that, thanks for telling me I try and stay clear of them then just to be on the safe side.
Thank you again.
