No Aysh, I have no other cories, these little guys were a mistaken (or a deliberate) substitution in an order...
They are indeed Coriadoras Aeneus.
So, let me make sure I understand, they will be fine with more of the same, regardless if they are albino or not?
That makes it easier. Now, I either sell the two, or find four more....
My blackfin sorta hangs out with my 3 peppered cories a lot. the blackfin was a rescue from PetsMart and I was a little concerned, but I caught them the other day in a tight diamond formation. three peppereds in the front and sides and the blackfin in the back. they love to poke around together too.
My blackfin is calmer and less active than my peppered cories though
I had a tank with 2 green, 2 peppered, 2 spotted, 3 panda, and 2 adolfoi cories. I hoped they would form a neat mixed species shoal. Interactions within species were VERY common and I would often see the pairs swimming and foraging together. However, I rarely saw any interaction between species. I like the shoal effect, so I am moving toward a similar number of total fish, but just one or two species.
i have 3 albino corys and 3 bronze. they all seem to shoal together quite the thing but i am very new to keeping fish so i could be misinterperating their behaviour. when they rest, they dont seem to do it as a group, rather as pairs of maybe 3 at a time but often i see an albino and a bronze lying together resting for example. hope this helps.
