Albino Cory Catfish.

This is my first post, but I've been reading through alot of threads and found much useful info. I'm really glad I came across this place. No more uninformed pet store workers for me! lol
I have never been much into catfish, but the other day I was at the local shop and decided to take a second look. I came across a tank with all these little, white fish swimming about. When I checked the plaque it listed them as Albino Cory Catfish. I loved them instantly.
So I checked a few books to be sure they were right for my little 10 gallon community tank. Seeing that they were okay, I bought a pair of them.
These are the most entertaining fish I've ever seen. I sat and watched them for maybe an hour yesterday and was amazed how exploratory they are.
I wish now I'd discovered them earlier, and can't wait to get them into the 100 gallon tank I'll be buying soon.
Anyone else fond of this amazing species?

Hello and welcome.. I'm rather new here myself. I haven't posted in a while but I have two albino corys and I love them. Like you said, quite entertaining to watch, and they are good jumpers! Almost lost one when I was doing a partial water change. I get pics of my two in my album here:

Good luck with the 100 gallon!

Great pics.

And yeah, those Cory's hitting the surface made me concerned at first. I thought they were going up for air, so i instantly tested my water.lol.
Guess they are just a frisky breed!
And thanks, I can't wait for the 100 gallon.
