I do have soft and acidic water, but my main concern is the temperature of the tank. It is kept at 80° which I've read is unacceptable for some corys. I did notice they had them at 80 at the lfs.. not that it means that's the ideal temp. I sent them a message asking them if they knew what kind it was and if they'd be getting any more. I don't want to add them just yet and they also only had two.

I tried to Google the name of them while I was in there and the only thing I got was something about the spotfin Cory, but it was not a spotfin.. I guess I'll see. I've got the four flase juliis now but if I could get another three of a different species to get some variety, I'd like it. If they won't be getting any more I'll just add one or two false juliis because they still had plenty of those. If the two that they did have are still left, it'd probably be a bad idea to get just two, wouldn't it? They're so tempting since they're mystery corys to me right now LOL.

The temp is crucial. BTW, the C. trilineatus (prob the "false" julii) is cooler water, 78F is the max high in the profile.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]

Yeah, I know. I've been looking for some Sterbai corys.. I think that's the one, I can't see the fish profiles on my cell phone, but I know there's one species that should be ok in 80°. I guess I'll just wait to hear from the lfs what kind of corys they are. If they're not compatible I'll probably look into another kind.
