Surprised me too, but they actually are Corydoras. Seems like Brochis was synonymised with Corydoras, at least until the next taxonomic review. Fishbase and Seriously Fish have them that way.

A 20 high really doesn't have all that much floor space for territories. It's fine for a pair like you have, but I think adding another dwarf cichlid would cause you a lot of problems. My advice...

Yep, the new name for Dadios. One day I'd love to keep them, but then the list of fish I'd love to keep one day is a really long one.

Sorry, but if that a 20 long or a 20 high? Just doesn't look like a 20 long to me, but I could be wrong. Pictures can do funny things.
