We'll second shollia's post.. they're great little fish & accept more than you'd think reading the 'ideal' conditions for them. We only have 2, below the 'minimum' of 3, in the Platy tank and the little guys are happy as can be. Sometimes they'll move together, sometimes they'll all go off and do their own thing. They'll be great to watch and we love all of those Cory types. We have 3 different type of platys and they act like a little school.. fish are fish and they'll often defy the stuff you read. If you want those Corys, we'd say go for it & enjoy their antics.jri4 said:Would 2 or 3 different cories kind of move together? I want a panda, peppered, and/or a julii, but only if they'll play with each other like one big happy family!
As long as you are referring to keeping the tank free of uneaten food and not cleaning algae you are ok. But if you are expecting the corys to clean the algae then you are looking at the wrong fish. You would want something more like an oto if you want some algae cleaners. Just a heads up.jri4 said:...I planned on picking up 2 of these to help keep it clean...
