Cory to cory?

Hey there!

As a lot of you know i had a bit of a Corydoras issue. Well i can now tell you that it is all better. The Bronze cory has made a full recovery with no Infection. I had to do Water changes everyday but it was SOOOO worth it. Knowing that he is all better.
But anyway. I have recently aquirred a Peppered Cory (In other words i bought him, No self control) My question to you is that can a pepered and a bronze be best buddies. But i will be getting abother one of each when i get paid (Doing a job for the neighbour SCORE!).
Also i bought some broad sword and i just wanted to know somethings on it like. Does it grow fast or slow? How does it reproduce? How big it gets?
Thanks a billion
Also here are some pics of the little guys!

Does your broad sword look like this?



If so, it has already reached full size. Remember to clean it and don't take it to school!

okay sorry.

Sword plants generally get quite large (they are known as "tank busters"). However, "broad sword" isn't very specific. Is it this? PlantGeek.net - Echinodorus quadricostatus

Some sword plants stay small (like the one I linked) so I can't answer it exactly right now. However, they feed heavily from the roots (so fertilizer tabs are needed).

Also, some cories will school together, but they vastly prefer the company of their own species.

+1 for taylorodw.

Some species of cories will school together, others ignore one another.

Swords can be tricky. As taylorodw said, some sword plants can be tank busters. Others stay smaller. I bought one of those tubes from Petsmart and I think I got two types of sword plants. Two of the swords from the tube are growing out the top of my 29g. These swords are 24" tall. The third plant from the tube is in my 20L and it's about four inches tall. The sword in the 20L actually receives more light. I can only assume they're different species.

the same specie can act very different under different lighting. take for example my apogenten. when i first got it i had only the stock 20 watt t12 bulb over the tank and the leaves would grow all the way up the tank and across the top of my 40gal tall. they were about 28-30". now i have 2 t5ho bulbs for 78 watts of light and the same plant doesn't grow over 10 inches. it depends on the specie i guess. some know to stretch for the light so they can photosynthesize when others just die and wither away. some use the higher light and explode in growth and others are content and stay small. it's weird. of course there are other factors such as nutrients and substrate etc..
