Are Cory Cats Compatible?
Apparently the "Emerald Corys" i thought i purchased a few months ago are actually Bronzes... But anyway. Are the numerous types of Cory Cats able to school with others of there same family?
3 Bronze Corys
1 or 2 Peppers
1 or 2 Bandits
1 or 2 Juliis
1 or 2 Pandas
I think they will, because I have bronze corys and laser orange corys and they school together, even though the bronze corys are much smaller than the others. They hang hang out together a lot of the time.
They will school together, however, you should still try for at least 3 of each species rather than a bunch of singletons.
From what I have read, many of the various corys will school together. I have a book that says the emerald catfish is "closely related to the true corydoras catfish".
Thanks for all the responses!
I've been thinking about it and I will be introducing them in groups of 3...
(Once i get my 55 gallon anyway):-P
I'm just a little skeptical of having so many bottom feeders. Maybe I will go with :
Is this too many? I also wanted to put a Clown Loach in there but that might be too much for the Lower level.
Hope this helps.
Cories aren't always on the bottom... Personally, I'm planning on a catfish tank..
I think cories, dwarf chain loaches (8-10), upside down catfish (3), and a centerpiece fish for the top levels (a dwarf gourami trio or some female bettas) would make a awesome display.. If you don't like centerpiece fish, a school of 6 hatchets would be nice too...
if you're doing a 55 i'd do like 4 or 5 of each cory.
My current tank hosts 8 Bronze corries, 4 Panda corries, and a Betta.
Love the corries.
