Butterfly Loach with Cories?


I just bought one of these guys - really cute. I'd like to get another, as I understand thier social, but this one keeps chasing my cories. Not real aggressive like, he lurches after them, they take off and he does not chase. I've searched the net and not found any mention of aggressiveness - everyone says they're peaceful.

Anyone have any experience with this pairing? Will it get worse, or is it nothing?

You'll need to add more hillstream loaches to deflect their attention from the cories. I keep both groups with no issues. I tend to keep loaches in groups than individually.

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.

Excellent, thanks! I'm very happy to get more, I'm thouroughly enjoying the one I have, my only concern was if he'd grow and get tougher on the cories or not. If more loaches will prevent this, it's a win win, cories are happy and I get more loaches!

Thanks very much for responding!
