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.

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.
