Hello, I've been wanting to get cory cats for a long time now, ever since I started this hobby, but now I have a pair of convictds...

My real question is what cory cat (if any) would survive in my tank?

P.S... My cons aren't possesive over the food, but they are bullies

Hello,

I don't know much about cories going with convicts but I'll help bump up this thread so someone will come along quick to help you out.

If you could kindly update your aquarium info, it'll be most helpful to the other members who can give you great advice. Best of luck!

Good morning,

I would not recommend Cory Cats with Convicts. Convicts are aggressive and should only be housed with other aggressive fish. I did a search and found two other threads where people tried it and they ended up losing the Cory Cats.

Peacemaker, there really isn't a need to bump up a thread that has just been posted.

Thanks!
Ken

+1. I can't see Corys & Convicts ending well under any circumstances.

As some words of experience with cories and convicts. I strongly belive that you should not mix the species together. Convicts are terrtorial and will bust a cory up within seconds.
Luclky i was reallly lucky and got them out in time

Ok, thank you all for your advice... I was really hoping that it could work, but since I'm stuck with an agressive tank, I will just have to wait until I have a community tank set up
