more cories or more types of cories?
i am setting up a 75g tank. going to be a school tank with mostly tetras. i want to get some cories for it. i want to have peppered, panda, and emerald green cories. currently i was planning on getting 4 of each. would that to ok with them being social fish. or would i be better of getting less varieties but in larger numbers? do different varieites of cories school together?
I've read that they shouldn't be kept in anything less than a trio but prefer to be in shoals of 6 or more. I've also read different species don't shoal together but will hang out together on occasion. Again, only what I've read on species as I only keep one type of cory species. In a 75 you certainly have the room to keep any species/amount you decide. :-D
I have bronze, albinos and peppers, Mine all school together, But they do seem to know their kinds.
I have albinos and skunk corries.
Although I sometimes see them all mixed up, most of the time the skunk corries are in their own separate group.
what number do you guys have?
I have 6 albinos and 4 of the skunk cories. I would like to have a couple more of the skunks, but I actually found the ones I have at Walmart about a year ago and have not found anymore for sale locally.
thanks for the info all!
