View Full Version : Albino cory's are pred's ?

Seems strange to think of them that way, with them just scrounging around on the bottom looking for food.

They are predators in the sense that they eat other animals. It's just that the animals they eat tend to be worms and other small critters buried in the substrate that cannot flee.
I know what you mean though. I frequently look at my obese, googly eyed cories dumbly bumbling around and wonder the exact same thing.

Nice link of info, I never knew that they were breathing air when they shoot to the top surface; I thought they saw floating food.

Also did not know about keeping 4 to 6 of them. I have them by themselves, with one other fish.

I have 10 in my tank and they are so cute together!

The bigger the "herd" the nicer their (social) behaviour.
Marvelous fish.

6 small in a 10g ?

Depending on what else you have, 6 would not overload a 10G. That said, I would want to extra filtration so I'd upgrade my filter for that tank.

i wish my tank was big enough to house cories with my community fish, unfortunately once they would have reached full size a 20g tall isn't big enough, and the pygmy corries are impossible to find in my area. But that's fine my Harlequin Rasboras also fit the cute bill so it's all good.

Sorry i know i got off topic there.

Cories are cute.
