    I like cories, aeneus bronze and albino are the ones I have, but my all time favorite catfish would be a lemon bristlenose and two saddle cories.

    I'd LOVE a herd of 12-15 cory's but my source water prohibits that and my brain (and pocket) aren't ready for RO. My eyes are though! They are awesomely entertaining in a large school!

    I seem to like Corydoras.

    Hoping to keep Aspidoras and clown plecos in the future.
