    Quick question on cories.

    I currently have two pepper cory and will be upping the number of cories when they are moved to the new tank. Do I/Should I stick with peppered or will the mingle if I were to get a different variety for some...well variety.

    Say Peppered and Emerald, just for instance?

    Emerald corys are actually not corys, they are brochiis and grow to 4+ inches.

    I've always observed different species not to school together.

    I would stick with the peppered. When I kept more than 1 type in a tank, they may rest near eachother at times, but did not school together really. Unless your tank is large enough for 2 seprate schools.

    Interesting, didn't know that.

    Sounds like peppered it is. Between one type of cory and the kuhli loaches I think the floor space is going to be pretty active. Toying with the idea of a ram though.
