Hey there, I was wondering if I should add a few more cories. Right now I have 4 bronze cories, and they seem splendidly happy together. I was thinking of adding maybe 2 more, but I don't want to overstock my 29gal tank. Right now I have 4 cories, 1 mickey mouse platy, 2 black platies, and 2 dwarf gouramis. Do you think I should wait on the cories or not even add more at all?

You can easily add 2 more cories into that tank without overstocking it. And the more cories, the better! Arent they adorable? Smile

Two more Bronze Cories could fit in there, easily without overstocking it. Bronze Cories are good community fish; hardy, sociable with other Corydoras and cute! What more could you ask for? Wink

Oh, I know! I simply love cories! The first time I put them in my tank, they were crazy... they're so fun to watch! Thanks for your input, I will definitely put some more cories in soon! Quick question though, should I put in 2 more bronze cories or would putting in a different kind (I.e. panda) be OK as well?

I originally had 2 Bronze Cories to start with, and I added in a pair of Sterbai's Cories, and they got along fine, but I don't know if 4 Bronze Cories would accept two other kinds. Maybe Albinos would work as they're the same species just a different colour.
