I am thinking of getting a school of cory cats for my 55 gallon, I am thinking 6 or 8.
I have some questions about them since I have kept them before.
My ph is 7.6, everything I have been reading says they need a ph of 7 so wondering if this could still work?
What should I look for at the lfs as far as picking a healthy school of them? Is there anything in particular I should be looking out for disease wise with this fish?
Temp is 76, water is hard, lots of live plants/driftwood and sand substrate. They will be housed with 2 guppies, 5 ghost shrimp and 7 monty swords (who I am hoping to get fry from eventually)
Will they eat fry?
Will they eat ghost shrimp?
Will they disturb and dig in the sand substrate?
Are all the varieties wild or are there certain colors that would be considered the "wild" version, since I have mostly wild fish in this tank I would like to try and get the natural colored cory cats and I am not sure what that is.
