Lovely fish Ben. They are by far the biggest Cory's I've seen fresh from a shop.

My duplicarius are tiny compared to those.
64L temperate community.
60L betta tank: 1 Delta betta (Stan), 6 sterbai cory.
5ft 425L: 46 rummie nose tetra, 1 longfin BN plec, breeding pair of platinum angelfish.
55L cube 1: 1 blue ram
55l cube 2: 14 corydoras duplicarius 2 rummie nose tetra I haven't managed to catch.

Following this one with interest. I’ve only had sterbai but I just adore them. So entertaining to watch, be it scuttling about the substrate, hanging upside down to feed on the food deliberately sprinkled on the floating plants, or zooming about with their tails like propellers on a toy submarine.
240L: 6 cherry barbs, 2 honey gourami,
6 Otocinclus, 11 sterbai Cory, 6 standard rummynose, 4 golden rummynose tetra. But don’t quote me on that given how things are going!

57L: Ghost (Betta) & Pumpkin (nerite)

Parameters: gH2, kH1, pH7.6 (tap).
Fish fiend since October 2017.

I'm planning on moving to dry food for my discus at some point when they're larger, I'll probably add some Sterbai to live with them at that point, but beef heart is too fatty. Seen lots of issues with Cory's and beef heart, a weird bubbling disease in obese fish.

I’m another corydoras addict - only on a small scale as I’ve never had more than 3 tanks on the go but I’m just cycling my new tank and currently the only decision is it will have corydoras! So I’m going to enjoy reading this written by someone more expert.

Aha thanks! I wish I had more, but I only like one cory species per tank, and I only have one tank ::think:: Am loving my big herd of gold lasers currently though!

I have had mixed cory groups before when I rehomed some fish from facebook (I know, but they needed a home!) and I’m pretty sure the corys don’t mind too much, but I prefer a herd that are all the same.
