Also, corys are one of the very, very few diurnal catfish. I have also heard Corydoras sterbi recommended for their hardiness and adaptability. They get even smaller and are cute and almost peppered in apearance.

This is a pretty crappy pic, but I swear these two Cories want to mate. They swim everywhere together and seem to even want to sleep together.





The one on the right is male. The left is female.

I think you switched the male with the female, as the female is always more bloated than the male. Also, the only way to tell if they are going to breed is they present themselves in the "T" position in which the female nudges the male in the side with her head, rubbing him with her barbles. Shortly after, the female lays the eggs in her "pouch" and then smears them in the way of water flow to allow them oxygen and nutrients.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this sp. needs to be 5+ inches to breed.
Oops! When I say pouch I am refering to the females action of holding her eggs in between her ventral fins until smearing the eggs on the glass.

IMO, cories are nocturnal and diurnal, simply a note i've taken because mine are out at night and in the day time. i think they just come out whenever they want basically

If you do not like the pandas, you could look up Corydoras whitesmani. They too are gorgious little corys and are excelent bottom feeders. Just remember that corys are all from south america and are all diurnal and small.

Do NOT buy algae pellets and expect corys to eat them. Corys are bottom feeders but that does not mean that they'll eat algae. They eat worms like tubifex and black worms as well as food that has fallen to the bottom. THEY ARE NOT ALGAE EATERS!! They may, on rare occasions, except veggy flakes, but other wise are omnivorous and will except omnivor or carnivor foods.

I sit corrected. thanks. I finally started with peas, and I am willing to bet that the tank would like something other than flakes.
