planning 25G-banjo catfish? different types of corys?
 
i am planning a betta centered 25G tank. when looking up what type of corys i would like i came across the banjo catfish. they said they work great as a community fish even with small fish (i'm also looking at dwarf frogs, tetras, cherry barbs and kuhli loaches-basically small fish types). but i can't seem to find out how big these banjo catfish get not the water parameteres that they need. also, does anyone know how easy or hard they are to find?

i'm also looking into getting corys, but read that there are over 100 different types, 50 of which are commercially sold. which would be good type to look into for a 25G community, betta centered tank? the albino and the julii look like good candidates, but what others are there? and where they are all corys will they group together if i had different types of them?

The get up to 6 inches long.

As for the cories and grouping, I had a mix of them at one time. Julii, Pnada and an albino. The panda would school with the Julii once in a while but the albino would not. Some say they will others say they won't. Is really kinda hit and miss depending on the fishes personality.

Honestly, I'd just go to the store and buy the ones that look the friendliest and most active. They're all cool breeds, and you never know which one the LFS will have in stock. The only thing you might want to be aware of, is which ones tend to breed more often than others, depending on if you want to breed them, or prevent a population explosion.
