  1. Default How many peppered corys in a 55g?

    Just wondering what would be the max number of them I could keep. The tank is heavily planted with driftwood and a nice log they can hide in. They would be the only bottom fish in the tank by the way.

    You can never have too many corys. Well...I suppose one could, but...

    In a 55g, I would aim for 12 up to 20 or even 30. Don't know what other fish you have.

    No less than five of a single species is a good aim, so you can have all one species like the Corydoras paleatus you mention, or you can mix species. They all get along. In my current 115g tank I have close to 40 corys representing about 10 species. Some arrived as "left overs" from the store so there may be only 2 or 3 of the species, but they all play together; I frequently see different species shoaling around together in pairs or a trio, all different, nudging each other in their antics.
