Cory Piggyback

    My corydoras seem to actually play games together. They follow each other around sometimes, and sometimes do this funny thing where they will dogpile on each other and then swim apart. If one starts poking around the plant leaves another will come and join in.

    yes aren't they the funniest things? I have 10 in a twenty-nine gallon tank and they all crowd under one sword plant leaf to sleep, even if they have to sleep in layers. then when food hits the bottom they just explode out and swim all over the bottom eating. They even play follow the leader ;)

    I feel sorry for my Cory. After the death of Yogurt Covered Raisin, Macedemia Nut is so lonely, and Honker even picks on him!!!! Luckily, I'm getting rid of Honker today. I may get more Cories. Also, what you said about them all bumping and swimming away, I saw some Albinos do that yesterday at my LFS. Cute little things, aren't they! Also, I love your tank and Cories, Slider! Like I said, I love Cories!

    Mine are peleatus corys, they are sort of spotted like a jaguar, with dark broad spots. I nearly lost one at the store, it clung to the little box thing they put the fish in initially and escaped the bag. It was only because I glanced in to see how everyone was doing that I realized I was missing a fish. Clever thing.
