Rummy Nose Tetra and Corys

Ok, I've read that these types of fish can't be in the same tank due to the fluctuation of water temps that each prefer. Has anyone had experience with keeping Corys and Rummies together?

I have a 40 gallon (36"x18x15") and I was thinking of the panda or skunk corys. In case you needed to know that.

That's a first for me. I keep my rummies at 78 and my corys (separate tanks) at 76. Not sure why they wouldn't be able to be kept in the same tank.

Ok, thanks! I was thinking of getting the rummies for my schooling fish. I'm just doing research before hand. I thought if anywhere I could get someone's personal experience from here instead of relying on the internet.

I don't see a problem at all. I have 11 rummies and 5 peppered cories in my 70g. Temps at 80ish at the moment (hot days) and they are fine.

I also have about a dozen rummies..... be sure to end up with a decent size school. They definitely find safety in numbers.

Thanks to you both for confirming that I can keep these two species together.

Is this a new tank?

Anything in there right now?

Yes, new tank and no, nothing is in there. I'm not quite ready for fish yet. I'm just researching so when I am ready I'll know what best suits my tank.

Did I mention that I love you for doing your research ahead of time!!!! Mwwwwwwwwwwwwwah!

Rummies are very sensitive, so you'd have to be sure to have rock-solid params in this tank. Corys, from what I've heard, can be sensitive, too.
