Corys - fighting or friends ???

Hi all.
I have a 57g tank with various Tetras. In it I also have 6 Pygmy Corys and 1 Bronze Cory. Today I added an Adolfoi Cory and it would appear that the Bronze Cory has gone mad..... but i cannot tell whether it is aggression or he is just trying to 'make friends'!!
He is swimming alongside the Adolfoi and trying to get close to its head!! He will not leave him alone. The Adolfoi doesn't seem to bothered.
The Pygmys have not changed their behaviour in any way!!??
Any thoughts on whats going on??

I would give it some time and watch them. Typically cories are fairly peaceful and don't hold grudges for long.

I am glad to hear they calmed down. I am just going to add that IME corys tenbd to stick with corys who are similar size or color, so your bronze cory probably was just really enthusiatic about making friends. Mine do that whenever I add a new one. They seem pretty thrilled.
