    of 3 new Julii Corys. I am getting 3 more in a few days but wanted to space out adding to the tank. Unless 3 is enough?

    There is always 2 together and the 3rd hangs out almost by itself. Then decides to join the group and chases 1 off and climbs over the other. Is this normal behaviour?

    Also I wanted to know what you guys feed yours. I have algea wafers, sinking shrimp pellets already. Seemed to like the wafer. Anything else? I also add flaked food to the tank for the loan platy

    i would get the 3 more for a total of 6 because corys are schoolers!! i think that the corys will group together better once there are a few more in the aquarium.. as for the feeding i think your okay with the foodyou have because when i had corys i fed them algae wafers and they enjoyed them

    im sure othr peopl will provide more information soon! :)

    I'm new to keeping corys.

    But so far I've noticed my bronze corys school most of the time as there are 5 of them.

    I have 3 of each of albino, panda, peppered, and they dont seem to school up.

    I will be getting more so will eventually have 5 maybe 6 of each specie :)

    Well I know there 3 of a kind as they all came from the same tank. Mind you I don't hold much faith in LFS lately ....
    I plan on going in tonight to grab 3 more.

    Right now there chasing each other all over the tank; up the back, everywhere.

    Here's a pic of them

    I couldn't agree with you more!
    I find myself putting food in the tank and just watching them.
    My daughter keeps kicking me out of her room. LOL

    I think when my 29g arrives I will be stocking with these;)

    How can you tell the gender.
    Please tell me not as hard as sexing a pleco!
