Question about Cory cats

750 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  QQQUUUUAADDD
I recently picked up 3 leopard cory cats. I would like to add a few more Cory's, but I was wanting to get a different type. Would they all shoal together or would the two types keep to themselves?

I've noticed that at least in my tank they generally tend to school with their own particular size and color. I have some albino cories, some green, cories, some peppered cories and they occasionally all make one school, but generally stay segregated by color. That does confuse me a bit, since the green/albinos are the same species, and supposedly color blind. I don't know how they can tell which ones are green and which are albino.
Just make them all one species. It looks better too.
Keep corys in schools. I have small schools of peppered, and pandas. I have one lone little skunk cory that I am trying so hard to locate a few more for him to school with, I found him by accident at a petsmart and he was all alone and mislabeled, at least now he's with other corys. They do best and are most active in schools of the same kinds.
Get a min of 5 of each type if you get cories they do best in groups of 5 or more
You can put them with other corys but like everyone else said they do tend to stick to their own species when schooling
I have 8 pandas that school together a lot. You need to keep cories in groups of at least 5. In the wild they're with hundreds of their own species.
