RyUGuy I have 2 species of cories. Leopard & some other kind that looks like a masked but with spots(LFS had them mislabeled). They will school by themselves(separate species) 75% of the time but 25% of the time they will all school together.

Chrisinator Corydoras are very social when it comes to other species of Cories

VivaDaWolf Ive not seen my different cories school together. They might be swimming near each other occasionally, but never like they do with conspecifics.

AirstoND My pygmy cories shoal with otos when looking for food, which is typically in the morning.

garfieldnfish I have many Weitzmani corys and 2 panda corys in a 29 gal. I added the pandas as they were the last of their kind and I did not want to get any more of them. They look similar in color so that may be why but they mingle with the Weitzmanis like they are one of them. This may not always work out but Weitzmani and panda corys will school together.

tbonedeluxe You could also just add some more leopard cories to the one tank.

Willamette Corys stick to their own species for the most part, in terms of shoaling. Obviously it won't bother them to be mixed up, but its best to keep a good number of each species. Always exceptions though.

Will cories school?

So i have a group of 5 panda cories in one tank, and due to a couple deaths during a recent move have 2 leopard cories in another tank. If i put them all together, will they schoal up or at least keep eachother company, or should i just restock both species?
