What type of cories should I get?
I have a 22 UK gallon Tropical community aquarium, and currently have:
2 Blue rams
7 Black Phantom tetras
My ph is quite high, almost 8.0, but the Rams have accustomed to that.
I wish to add a few small cories to the tank, and that'll be all the fiish I'm getting.
I don't have enough space for a shoal or, for example, tetras, because you need more than 7 of them, but I have the space for 4, or 5 at a push, cories.
So, what small corydoras would you recommend for fairly easy keeping, hardiness (lol) and of course, cuteness!! haha
So I wish for them not to be too sensitive, but I don't mind if they aren't as indestructable as a diamond!
Thanks everyone. :wink:
P.S. I like Panda Cories :D :)
Aside from pandas, get Sterbais.:wink2: They're fun.:thumbsup:
You could also look into the ...Albino Cory, Corydoras paleatus they are cute as well, we have a pair in our small fw tank and they are just a joy very playfull. :D
My vote goes to sterbai!
1) They are stunningly beautiful fish.
2) They are very, very hardy fish.
I purchased 7 approximately 8 months ago when I first ordered fish
after reentering the hobby after 35 years.
All 7 are still alive and doing good in spite of my "experience
3) Their running, romping and antics will keep anyone entertained.
IMHO 5 would be the minimum number in order for them to be "happy fish"!
The following provides some data concerning sterbai as well as photographs.
The following provides general aquarist data and sterbai depiction.
Due to their animation "getting a picture" of one is difficult (this was the best of approximately 10 photographs over a 30 minute period).
Nice cory, Jones.:thumbsup:
Or you could go with pygmy corys, which are off the charts on the cuteness scale, get 1" long max, and prefer a larger shoal. You could get 9 or 10 of them no sweat if you have room for 4 regular corys. Drip acclimate, though, over the course of several hours.
I like Sterbas' too. Pretty, pretty fish. Don't overlook Leopard/Juli/Trilineatus, though. They're inexpensive and and nearly as good looking as Sterbas'.
Stay away from Pandas. They're about as sensitive as corys get.
Are Pandas sensitive? That's a shame, they're so cute! lol
Thanks again everyone. :D :D
