Ideas for fish in my 53gal

Rabidshore

Hi all!

I have a 200L (53gal) tank.

Currently with 10 zebra danios and 10 sarpae tetras.

I need ideas for something to add, either a "centerpiece" or maybe corydoras?
I think it's hard to find which species would go with my current fishes and the size of the tank and so on

Thanks in advance!

How with corys you can do literally any species

Should add my water is hard.

I don't know a whole lot about cory's.
But i know they should be kept at least 7-8 right?
and the other fish wouldn't nip the fins of the corys?
Heard a lot of scare-stories about serpae's. but mine is chill, and never bother the danios.


I would not be near overstocking then right?

Ya they will be fine with proper acclimation and yes you are quite decently stocked

I love the julii cory's.
For them to be happy, how many should they be?

Not quite true, some have different requirements.
For your tank Rabidshore I’d suggest C.aenus bronze or albino as they have quite a wide temperature range & would be ok with the danios which prefer cooler temp.
C.julii are rarely if ever seen in the trade, what you would be getting is “false julii” C.trilineatus, they would be ok with your stocking too.

i know they have Corydoras Aenous at my LFS.
if I were to go buy them now, how many should I buy?

What are the dimensions of the tank?

Thanks, ok then I’d suggest 8/9 albino/bronze they’re one of the larger corys so need space

Sooo, I fell into the trap.
I drove down to the local fish store after work, had a good talk with them down there (they are such a good shop).
aaaaaaand came home with 10 Corydoras anous :D quite young ones I think they're 3-4 cm.
acclimated them, and they went into the tank.
Initially, they hid, but after a few minutes, everyone came out into the open.
The danios and serpae were curious at first but didn't really bother them at all.
In the evening everyone seemed completely fine and did their thing.
One thing is I noticed one of the cory's was missing most of the tail fin.
But it didn't seem to hinder his swimming and keeping up with the rest.

One thing I didn't get to ask at the shop, I bought some tabs (I feed the other fishes flakes and once a week frozen bloodworms ).
I don't know how much or how often to feed the cory's. before leaving this morning I dropped 2 tabs in and fed the others with flakes as I used to.
