Corys and Sev?

Would corys be ok with a severum?

I have a 55 gallon that currently has 3 Boesemani Rainbowfish and a chocolate pleco. I recently lost my severum and would like to get another. I was thinking of rehoming the pleco (as he will get quite large) and maybe get some corys for the bottom. Maybe a larger species like Sterbai or Brochis Splendens. The sev would be a young one maybe 2-1/2 to 3".

Would that work?

Yes, dependent on the temperment of the individual fish. Sevs mid, Cories bottom. :D

Cool! How many would be ok without overstocking? Here's what I have in mind for the tank:

1 green severum
3 boesemani
5-6 black skirt tetras
3-4?? corys

Does this look ok?

I keep a mixture of sterbais and peppered corys along with my two gold sevs, and they have never bothered the corys. They don't seem to pay much attention to bottom dwellers.

OH YAY! I raised 3 green sevs in a 30 gal along with 4 cories and they always got along fine. Even now, the severums are going on 5" or so and they dont give any grief to anyone else in the tank. they bicker amongst themselves but dont pay any attention to the cories they were with, or the gouramis pleco shark or tiger barbs with em now.

as was said depends on the personalities but I've had good luck thus far.

OH OH Id get 6 false julii and umm... wow thats a tough one.... 6 peppered cories. huzzah :D

The false julii would be Corydoras trilineatus.

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.

I think that they would do just fine. Get a minimum of 6 of the one species for them to be most active, happy and fun to watch.

Yay! That sounds like a plan.

What temp do they prefer? My tank is usually around 79-80F. Is that ok?
