Was watching the fish this morning and thought it was funny that the cories would swim with the other fish. Is this normal or a sign they are happy or hungry?

It looked like a fish parade.

Even my pudgiest cory Hera ( a giant albino female) does this from time to time. Just something they seem to do on occasion and really seem to enjoy it. I don't think it has anything to do with needing food.

I think it's just them being social. I have two kinds .. not sure on species... but both aren't supposed to get too big.

Skunk and peppered are your species.

Isn't it funny to watch?! It's like they think they are part of their group.

Woah, bizarre. I have skunks and a peppered cory too. That's not a really common combination.

I don't think that's a skunk. That's a panda cory. The black on them is slightly different.

I googled. I think that's actually an adolfo's cory. I'd never even heard of those!

Sorry, but it's a skunk. Pandas have no stripe on the back, and adolfos don't have the dark spot at the tail.

Definitely not a panda.... but maybe not a skunk. Okay, the adolfos don't have a black spot at the base of the tail. There are a lot of cory species out there.

Looks like there's a lot of variances in appearance, so you are probably right about it being an adolfo


Could be a bandit cory.

Looks like a skunk to me. I have a panda and that's not it. It also does not appear to have the yellowish bit on its head that an adolpho has.

(Note, I only have one panda because the rest of the new cories didn't make it - I will be giving him a school ASAP)

the skunks don't have the blotches on the eyes though.

Maybe it's a davidsandsi. Lemme look it up real quick.

EDIT: I think I was right.

There are several different species with the same design. Could be a sands cory. a clearer profile pic would make identification a lot easier.
