Compatability Question

Would it be okay for me to put a couple baby electric yellows with my pepperd corys? It would only be temporary until they outgrow the tank and move into my 55 gal malawi tank.

What size tank is it and how big are the fry? How many fry are there?

The tank is ten gallons in size. They are about 1.5-2 inches long, and I would only put about 2 or 3 in the tank.

That is really pushing it. They are aggressive fish (compared to the Cories) and I don't think a 10 gal is big enough.

I'd be leery of putting anything as aggressive as mbuna with cories.

Maybe if they were smaller fry and it was a bigger tank, but not a 10 gal.
