    I have a great looking Cory with interestingness patterns, I think she is temp compatible but I don't know, if she is. I have angel fish in the tank that I would like to keep in the same tank as her. I would not like to give her up, seeing as I have had her for two years, and she has survived through many diseases.
    Thanks!

    Looks like false julii (c. trilineatus) and no, they aren't temp compatible with angelfish. False Julii corys like it under 75F while angels need it at 78+. If she is the only cory, I would rehome her or get at least 5 more as they are a shoaling species and set up a separate tank for them (at least a 20g).

    Plz comment

    More

    As I said, I cannot afford anything more than this, if I could I would, but I have to feed myself before I do anything else.

    I want them to be comfortable, but nothing is free, so I will only make do with what I have.

    It isn't fair to the fish to keep it on its own. You should rehome it if you can't add more. :)

    I can't afford that, everyone wants a tank along with her, I don't have enough to do anything with her, sadly.

    No place will take her, that's the problem, no one wants her...

    Do you have a LFS that you could donate her to? Many fish stores won't pay for your fish, but will take it no problem if you donate her. The fish is unhappy alone. They need to be in groups of 6 or more to be completely happy. Plus your temp is to high for this cory.

    Rare for PetCo fish to live that long!

    Corys can live 15-20 years, she's going to be a very lonely cory for a long time if you can't get her some companions or rehome her

    I will try to get another Cory, if I can afford it.

    I like to think that the majority of fish can survive a long while regardless of where they're from, given they are properly taken care of.
    I had a goldfish that I got from an awful walmart tank..and he lived for 10 yrs..before I knew ehat I was doing

    But I do recommend taking him back until you research a little more about them and can give them the proper number of groups for all of your fish.
    Still worried about your angels :(
