What's your favorite cory cat?

I'm thinking of getting a school of about 8 Cory cats for my 55 gallon planted (See 55 Transformation thread). I don't want huge ones, but I want some really active ones. What do you prefer?

All cories are great, however where I am, the variety is severely limited, and except for bronze, albino and peppereds, they are quite expensive (I wanted green stripe aeneus, but they are upwards of $40 for tiny ones)

You may have more selection:

Bandit, panda, peppered, and sterbai.
However, peppered cories are one of the bigger growing ones ( around 4" max ).

Yeah that's a little too big. So then I'm looking at sterbai, panda, and I've heard of julii before. Which variety is the most active? Anyone with any experience?

I would go with the sterbai since pandas prefer cooler temps....but the juliis could work to I'm sure...I haven't kept either type but I really do love the sterbais

Actually Peppered Cory Cats can only get around 2.5 inches max. And that would be in a big tank.
