What would be the maximum number of adult sterbaI corys in a 29-gallon tank with 1 male betta? Currently there are 8 adults, with at least two youngsters that happened without my assistance.

I’ll have to tell them to cut it out, then. Just found more eggs.

Actually, are sterbaI cory's one of the few that hang around in the middle and bottom of the tank instead of just the bottom? I don't remember right now, but if they are that would give you a bit more room. Maybe ~20

Hi, you may be thinking of Pygmy or hastatus as they are mid dwellers, C. sterbaI are bottom dwellers so I’d say 12-15 would be a good number

Nah, just the bottom. I think it’s some of the teeny corys that hang out higher.

Make that at least four youngsters.
