Quick Cory Question
 
Will different types of Corys school together?

Thanks

Yes.:) They are quite sociable.

Shoaling
 
Hi. There is no way to answer that question, other than to say, they may shoal, some may shoal while others peel-off, or they may not shoal at all. Each group will react differently to it's Cory tank mates and the various parameters (water, lighting, hiding places, other species in tank, etc.) that is their enviroment. If you ask a dozen people - you'll get a dozen answers.

It is best to keep Corys in groups of at least 5 to 6 for their comfort and security.

yeah, but in general the different familys of Corys tend to get along... correct?

I have 4 Juliis now and I'm gonna add two more. I was just wondering if I should stick with Julii Corys. I probably will anyway, I was thinking of my options.

Yes, they get along. Your question is, however, far different from the question asking if they will shoal together. Experiences vary and I'm sure you might find your cories shoaling if they see it fit to accompany each other along or not.

I picked up 2 green Aeneus Cory Catfish and they are fitting right in with the 4 Julii's. Everybody seems very happy. I don't know if they are schooling or shoaling and I don't really care...as long as they are happy.

Thanks for the help and I'm sorry if I got the term wrong for what I meant, I'm still very new at this. :D
