Show Me Your Cories

Can everyone show me pictures of your cories? I can't decide what kind I want to get. I was going to get pandas but I love them all. I need some inspiration from your pictures. I have black substrate and my tank is set at 74-76F.

Are there any cories that would absolutely not work in my tank?
Of the more commonly available corys pandas, peppered & trilineatus wouldn't like the temperature whilst albino, bronze & sterbaI would all be ok with it

Oops, I meant 74-76F. Probably more of 74. I edited my post

Ok, that brings back in the pandas & trilineatus & just nudges out the sterbai

What about Corydoras punctatus?

You won’t see true punctatus in the trade.
Punctatus means spotted so a lot of species of cory get mis Id’d as punctatus

I was kind of wondering because I saw multiple ones online that didn't look the same. This is the one I'm talking about The first picture.
What temperature do you keep them at? They are beautiful

Maybe you should try to breed them

Yup already trying. They act as if they are about to breed then they stop. I may put them in there own 20 long with almond leaves, drift woof, leaves, and live brine shrimp.

I've got peppered, green, and albino all at a temp of 76 to 77. They do pretty well at that temp.

They are bred only a few times.

Here's some pictures of my pandas. Also just about decided to do a bit smaller school of sterbais in a different tank. May also get a couple more pandas to add here too.

One of my new Paleatus
(They are still super shy and blend in with the substrate I have in this tank, so it's hard to get a good pic!)

I have albinos and sterbais. I really like my albinos. They are very active and show up really well on black sand.

My sterbais are much more skittish and don’t show up well on black substrate, but are now much easier to see on pfs.

One day I will have Corys. In my opinion, they are the most adorable fish. Their faces are so cute!
