They are adorable but it seems there is a couple different kinds o_o or sub species or something. Which have the smallest bioload?

Dwarf cories have the smallest bioload. But you could get away with practically any of the common species, just make sure they are all the same. I have both albino and peppered and they will never school together.

I've always been partial to the albinos.

You could definitely get those. I always thought they were creepy in a cute way, but they are cheaper so I bought them hoping to make a bigger school for my peppered, was a huge fail, now I have 2 schools of 3 instead of 1 school of 6 lol

Fishies love to be difficult.

I'm thinking I'll need more small silk plants and some hiding places then. The gravel is sort of already good for the albinos I think. It's the same stuff I use in my 55 and the albino pleco got a lot less shy when I put it in there.

Cories prefer sand because they like to dig, but as long as the gravel isn't too rough and big it'll be fine, all mine are on gravel at the moment too

The gravel has pretty smooth edges but I'll probably have to add more, it's only really in there for looks.
