    Hi. Wondering if there is a good species of Corydoras Catfish to go with my Cichlid tank that will contain a lot more Mbunas later on.

    To my knowledge they have quite controversial needs.
    Corys, Soft water, Lower Ph, protein (meaty) food.
    Mbuna Hard Water, Higher Ph, algae food (not meaty proteinrich)
    No Cory, No Glory !!

    Forgot. No African Corys either? Super need a good algae cleaning fish for the overpopulated Mbuna tank. I am hoping for 15 to 18 Mbuna Cichlids in a 55 gallon Fish tank. Loracariid hopefully, as I know they are lettuce eating fish. Mbunas also love Vegetable matter, particularly Plants, which often times fall prey to Mbunas.

    There are no African Corys + Corys aren't algae-eaters.

    I am nit familiar with suitable African (or Asian) algae-eaters.

    Other members please jump in.
