Oh yeah. But remember with Cory's, the more the merrier. If you have a tank big enough more than two would be good. Maybe 5.

I had 5 corys and then lost 2. I noticed a remarkable difference in the behavior with the existing ones. They definitely do best with more in a group.

I have had the same experience in the past, added more to the group and it was like they were different fish.

So, that's roughly 30 US gallons. You'd need a tank twice that size for clown loaches.

Boring is in the eye of the beholder.

Do you have anything in there now? If so, what? Compatibility plays a big part in stocking a tank well.

Are there certain species that you're interested in?
