Just making sure...

Firstly, Hi everyone!!
I haven't been here for ages.
Anyway...
My tank is 22 UK gallons, has 7 Black Phantoms, 2 Mollies, and 2 Blue Rams.
I'm planning on perhaps getting 4 cories (panda cories perhaps?) and then that will be me done with stocking.
Does that sound ok?
Also, I'm open to any other suggestions.

P.S. The water has quite a high ph that the Rams have grown accustomed to, around 7.8 usually.

oh, I'm sorry, I've put it in the wrong bit!
Is there anyone who can move it for me?

Thanks :P

IMHO you will enjoy 7 cories instead of 4.

Their antics will probably be much more antimated.

IMHO if you purchase very young ones (as I did with my seven sterbai) you will enjoy raising them.

I am assuiming that you are like most of us and eventually more or a larger tank will be "on the way".

BTW I have only returned to the hobby for six months after 35 years.
The sterbai are very, very hardy fish as they have survived all of my disasters.

Thanks for the tips.
I understand that cories prefer to be in groups of 6 or 7, or more, but I don't have the stocking space in the tank right now. Seeing as I am not planning a new tank in hte near future, I think 4 or 5 at a push would be the only option if I don't want to overstock.

Would they be happy in a group of 4? I have been told they would, as long as it's over 3.
Thanks again for your help.

They feel most comfortable in groups of at least 6, but your 4 should be okay. It's better than just keeping one.
