yeah. also they are a good fish to add last as they can be a bit territorial if you have other bottom feeders.

i think it depends a lot on the individual fish. people dont give fish enough credit as individuals imo i had a pair of corys once that defied everything i've ever read since joining this site by surviving salt, cycling tanks and one disaster that killed all the other fish in the tank at the time. they were Supercorys! hehehe
