Venezuelanus cories. They look like bronze cories but are a little more brightly colored with a red splotch

So many cories and not enough space! I think I've narrowed it down to sterbai, albino, agassizi and skunks (as I'm staring at skunks right now and they're just so dang cute!)! Maybe I should get one of each? I only have 2 cories at the moment and I have a 30 gallon...so maybe 3 more total. Or do you guys think I can fit more in? The venezuelans are interesting also...

I've heard that you can do one cory per 10 gallons, but i don't put much stock in that. I think one of each would be just fine. They love schooling and will be found in mixed groups in the wild even.

I don't think 6 or 7 would be to many. =]

cories

Iv'e had quite a few varieties but am now leaning to the dwarf or pygmy cories. I can have so many more and they really seem to comb the bottom of the tank like a vacuum cleaner.
