    Default Corydoras thinking they're Otos?


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a 20 gallon aquarium started a couple of months ago
    and have recently added 6 young panda corydoras. I have read that they are supposed
    to school tightly on the bottom levels of the tank but mine seem to love climbing around on ludwigia stems more than anything else. They also never show any signs of grouping except when the gravel vacuum scares them. Does anyone have any suggestions to explain the otocinclic behaviors of my catfish?

    They will group up occasionally. Corys are not nesacarily bottom oriented but surface oriented. In a planted tank or any other type tank with lots of verticle structure they will be all over the place.

    any fish will go where the food is...and if they aren't feeling threatened, they won't feel the need to school.

    My cories swim up the glass constantly. It's normal for them to swim around freely.

    Well, thanks for all the suggestions, but I have bought the little
    guys to fill out the bottom after all. Is there anything I can do to
    get them to behave more typically?

    Food that sinks to the bottom gets them to stay there until it runs out. Where there's food, there's cories. It's a good thing they go all over the tank, it means they're comfortable with their surroundings.

    No, They do not read the same fish behaviour books that you do in school. :-P
    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.
