What kind of cory would thrive in 75-80 temp range? I have a 40 gallon breeder cycling and I know what want but I'm trying to find the best suited species of cory for the temperature range. Here is my planned stock, minus the corys I have 5 panda corys in a 10 gallon right now that I'd like to move into something bigger, but I've heard they like cooler water. They're definitely going in temporarily though until I can get them a more ideal setup. Any suggestions?

Some other warmer water corys are aeneus, adolfoi, brochis splendens , duplicareus, haraldschultzi, gossei, suessi, and oiapoquensis

I really like oiapoquensis, they look a lot like pandas so maybe they'd be more willing to school together while the pandas are in the tank temporarily. Not sure if I've ever actually seen them in my lfs though, may have to make a special order if I want them.

If your LFS can't special order them for you, I've seen some of them on Aquabid.com. Definitely have seen oiapoquensis on the site before.

Edit: Oh, I just saw you're in Canada. Not sure what sites or breeders are around you that would sell those.

In my area, pandas are very common and also sterbais but not so much the others you mention.

Some peeps here who like angle fish can only use sterbai cories because of temp compatibility.

Oops, just took a look above and saw the question. Sorry.

Edit: You might want to check Aquabid.com then. WetSpotTropicals also has bids on that site.
