Wow, this is so much better than any fishtank. They say you should keep at least 6 fishs in one group. They probably still feel more happy as 600...
Mar tin

Question is: good size for whom? For the owner = fish not dying. For the fish --> but don't keep them and leave them in the wild. It is only my opinion and is basically incompatible with the whole concept of pets :-( That's why you end up with the 8 Cory compromises. If you tell to buy minimum 600, people will go "Whatever. Then I'll just buy pair."

Mar tin Completely true but do you think these fish would sell if people told you to keep it in groups of 12 or more (minimum school size for them to act decently IMO)? It is actually sad to enter fish forums and see the "stocking experts" stocking 8 corydoras and calling it a good sized school.

I have 4 of these guys. really active. get along with basically anything. awesome fish

busa89 If you can't keep them in proper size schools don't get them in the first place. That is egotistic.
Your tank, your crap at the end of the day, but you haven't seen the full corydora potential if you keep them in small groups.

I should have however many I want without overcrowding my tank.

what species of corydoras?
what is this location in the Amazon?
Random User
Random User - 5 years ago
Very good question which I was also wondering. The first thought that came to my mind was corydoras arcuatus but these corydoras don't have the full stripe. There are over 150 species of corydoras known to man (and we still have some trouble classifying those) so I wouldn't be surprised if this was a new species, or maybe it is known but not famous in aquaria.

6 is a crappy number that started appearing in books on the 1950s and it is totally bogus. While you can't keep them in natural groups of hundreds hobbyists should do the effort to give them the biggest schools they can, even if they have to sacrifice other fish for it.
If you look at my tanks you will see my aquariums have 1-2 schooling species but you will also see that those two schools will be big unlike many tanks which seem to carry a bunch of schools with a lot of them carrying just 6-8.

If your tank is too small too have a sufficient shoal, you shouldn't have them to begin with.
Will Thornton
Will Thornton - 6 years ago
Agreed, unless your tank is too small. I wouldn't suggest more than two in anything smaller than a 10 gallon. I have 6 in a 35 gallon and they are happy as can be. 5 females and 1 male, they lay extremely fertile eggs.
Jim Lahey
Jim Lahey - 6 years ago
you do realize they should be kept in groups of 5+, they are a schooling fish, keeping them in smaller that 5 can cause stress

Nice evidence for corycats needing corycat friends in the tank. Pet shop guy told me corydoras are happy alone. They can certainly survive alone, but I think they will be far less stressed if in a nice group.

jason smith Nice, they look very similar but I don't see spots on the corydoras in this video. On a side note this was recorded in Brazil while C097 was supposedly recorded in Peru, altough I don't think that is enough evidence to discard your comment as there can be many populations far appart from each other.

Man... Why people still destroying Amazon? Really, look at this beautiful animals. PS: I know what I'm talking about cause I'm brazilian PS2: If my english is bad, you know why.
Luculencia - 7 years ago
Big businesses are destroying it for money.
Poor people are destroying it to make a living and feed their family.
The people in first world countries are destroying it by not caring and continuing to buy products that have come from or caused destruction of the rainforest.

It's sad but most people don't care at all about the environment - they just want to live their lives in comfort and only think about themselves. It's very hard to get most people to think outside their own lives and consider the impact humanity has on the ecosystem.

I can understand why poorer people living on the bread line wouldn't have time to consider anything but staying alive... but rich people living in comfort in the city should be more considerate that they are able to live so comfortably because the natural world is being exploited somewhere else...

Most people don't think about it, but eating meat everyday (especially beef) is one of the major causes of destruction of forests. Forests are cut down constantly to provide grazing areas for livestock like cows. The beef is then sold to other countries who do not have sufficient agricultural land to feed their own population (e.g. UK). The rivers running through the agricultural land become polluted by animal dung and silt that is stirred up by the passage of herds walking through it and drinking from it. Humans dump their own waste and rubbish into it and soon it becomes uninhabitable for plant, fish and invertebrate life.

The ecosystem would really benefit from a lowered human population too, but try suggesting to people to only have a maximum of 2 children and they freak out and think you're suggesting mass genocide or something....

Albinos are actually bronze cories if im nt wrong
Sempi - 7 years ago
The only ones that still hide under my driftwood are my albinos, but I've had them before this tank and they did the same and I had about 5 of them and I rarely saw them. I'm glad I have more than a couple species, they all school together like they're all war buddies or something. 
dogglet1234 - 7 years ago
I understand but they seem to be happier with their own species bro
Sempi - 7 years ago
+dogglet1234 they don't have to be exotic. Any cory cat will school with any cory cat. It's best to keep them in groups of 4+ I have 6 in my tank consisting of: Peppered Cory, Panda Cory, and Albino Cory.
dogglet1234 - 7 years ago

I forgot to write, that i can't find out from the video that how big they are, so i don't know which specie exactly.
Janó Ámon
Janó Ámon - 14 years ago
I think this specie is Corydoras sychri or Corydoras atropersonatus. The sychri is the bigger one ~6,5 cm, atropersonatus is around 4 cm. But correct me if i'm wrong. I have 4 from the smaller one, in my 120L tank. They are really lovely. I'm plannin to breed them, 'couse the female's belly getting rounder and rounder these days. :) Beautiful video, i really would like to see more like this! :)
