OK, so I have a 20 gallon, with 6 lemon tetras, and 4(5 until yesterday Sad ) corydoras.
I am now looking for some buddies for my cories. But I don't really know what type they are, I think they're nanus corys, but I don't know. So I was thinking of getting some peppered corys. What type do you suggest, and how many?

No more corys as different species don't shoal together. 20g is too small for peppered cats.

I think a 20 gallon is big enough for either boost up the group you have or get maybe another group of panda corys. They stay smaller.

Yeah, the problem is, the LFS that used to carry them closed down, and I have no idea exactly what they are!

OH MY GOSH. I'm so sorry for not replying, it's been a long time and I wonder if anyone is still here? I couldn't figure out how to show pictures from my own computers file, so I found a picture that resembles them, and I think they are Corydoras bilineatus?


FYI these are not my pictures. I found them on the internet
Thanks if anyone reads this! And sorry again Diademhill

Those are photos of two different species. They may have both been labelled C. bilineatus but the top one certainly isn't and I'm not convinced the bottom one is either. Corys are often misidentified.

Can you get a photo of your fish please?

Oh dear. Alright, is there a way to post a picture from my computer's files? Or does it have to online?
