10 Gallon Cory Tank?

    So I might be getting a 10 gallon for Christmas (it'll probably be a Aqua-Culture 10 Gallon kit). I've been researching all kinds of fish, and decided on trying a species tank with bronze/albino corydora, with maybe a peppered or two if I can find them.

    How many of these corydora can I keep in a 10 gallon? I was thinking 4, 5 max.
    I've heard of 10 gallons holding a few, but I can't find details on a species tank.

    Anyway, I have VERY limited resources to get fish, and I can't order off of the internet, so that's the only type of cory I have, except for the rare different one. No little pygmies or pandas. D:

    I know it's a lot to type up; sorry for rambling. I just really want to make sure I have happy, healthy fish. xD

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Fishlore :)

    A cory tank would be a great idea! You could house four cories of the species that you listed above in your tank since they get about 2.5 inches each.

    @MissMTS: Thanks. <3
    See, that's what I thought, but sites go anywhere from 10-30 gallons minimum for corydora and I got confused. That's probably what I'll do.

    Do you think you think I could get 3 and then try my hand at breeding and raising the 4th? Or will they not like being in groups of three? That's something else information is always conflicting about.

    @Tony G.: I know! I've watched them play around at my store and on Youtube. They've stole my heart. :b

    @Lucy: Thank you!
    Yeah; I kinda wish I had more variety, but I'll just have to go with it.
    No, I didn't see that! I told my Dad about it. Thanks for that. Maybe it'll convince him a bit more... ;D

    I've gotten more advice here in a few hours than I have anywhere else in... quite a while. I'll definitely be staying.

    Do you have a vid to share? :b

    If you are going for all the same type of cory I would recommend the albino ones. They are always active and fun to watch. I grew up watching them, it's probably the only type of fish that has always been in the community tank since it was set up.
