Thread: Cory School?

Hybrid View

  1. Default Cory School?


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm looking to add a school of Cory Cats to my tank. I know they do best when in schools of 6 or more, but I'm wondering if they all have to be the same type?

    For example, would it be OK to do three emerald cories and 3 sterbas, or should all six be the same?

    Thanks.

    Different ones can and do hang out together but to really see them at their best... Get one kind.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    What would you say is the minimum number for a school of cories?

    The more the merrier with corys. Provided you have the room [Tank size?] I'd start with six in a stable tank [Nothing that's being cycled].

    It's a 40-ish gallon tank that's just recently cycled...



    Right now it's stocked with 5 Serpae Tetra, 4 Australian Rainbows, 6 Harlequin Rasboras, 8 Tiger barbs, 1 Rainbow Shark, and 1 Dwarf Gourami. I think I'm pushing it as far as the stock goes, but I've got plenty of filtration and would like fun bottom dwellers.

    Do you think adding 6 is pusing it?
