    As long as your water is under 15 dGH, you should be good. And even then, they can adapt to a little higher.

    I do not personally keep cories, an yes I do have hard water. Cories prefer soft to moderately hard water (up to 15 dGH). But, it depends on which species you are going to purchase. The smaller cory cats are more finnicky, and delicate as would be expected due to their size. The larger ones will adapt better. For example, both the pepper cory cats and the pygmy cory cats can do well in up to 15 dGH, but the pygmy prefers under 8 dGH.

    In short, they can tolerate soft to moderately hard.
    But, smaller species generally prefer soft.

    Hey, just saw your pic comment and not sure if I reply to it there if it'll show up here or not. My pH is 8.1 and my hardness is around 204. From what I've been reading most fish will adapt to high pH and high hardness, I'm just not expecting to see any breeding behavior in my corys and otos because of that. :)

    All domesticated mice are fancy mice. Unless you meant color, he's a broken piebald. ^.^ They also get oxygen from the surface sometimes so I don't think they need it. However, I have a volcano decoration which aerates the water, I really just wanted the purpose of the bubbles to look nice, lol.
