    I'm looking for a cory cat for my community tank, what's your favorite!?
    (relatively cheap, nonaggressive, and my tank is 78 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit)

    With warm temps like that, youre REALLY limited. Only a few Corys do well in warmer water. Sterbais are the best for warm water but Emerald Greens, Bronze, Adolfo & Albino's can handle it too.

    No Corys are aggressive, so no worries there. Cheap is another thing. Depends on where you are. Emeralds, Bronze and Albinos shouldnt be more than $4 each. Sterbais are like $8 around here and Adolfo's can be like $10ish.

    78-79 is MAX for Peppered so I wouldnt sugggest them. It will shorten their lifespan.
