Has anyone kept Adolf's Cory's?
I've got a great picture in a book (forget to look in the shop when I visit) and with all the talk of having cory tanks, it's a sort of project I'm toying with when the Multiple Tank Syndrome becomes full-blown....

I keep them

Great Cories, my favourites. Beautiful animals, hardy and easy to keep.

You have a good taste:ezpi_wink1:

Thanks Andrea, I think I will have a go at them when extra tanks arrive and the bruises from my wife heal :ezpi_wink1:

Here's a link to look at...
http://www.scotcat.com/factsheets/corydoras_adolfoi.htm

Says there that "Cory = helmeted; doras = leathery skin,(helmeted Doras) cuirass.
adolfoi: Named in honour of Adolfo Schwartz."
