My Albinos are GREAT in my 30g :) 5/5 are still alive- I had been a bit worried at first, but they're all good!

I have 1 albino and one green(is that the "emerald"?) Anyway they do fantastic with my PK male. he isn't agressive so that helps. It's actually really fun to have these 3 together because they all school together since their is no two of the same. My Betta is trully adorable with them. The albino seems to lead the pack then the Betta tends to follow his lead and the green cory is simply stuck up the betta's butt ALL the time lol. Inseperable normaly. Really funny to watch a Betta try to eat their food just to fit in then spits in out... and attempted a few time to dig in the sand like the cory's but freaked out and hid in his log before rejoining his buddies hahaha!

Why do you say that? I have been considering dwarf corys as the mid-level dweller for my 20L, which is ruled by a betta. Are they hyper? Or a little aggressive?

Thanks!. So it's a green Cory . Just making sure. It's identical to the albino but has a green hue to it. They are Juvies so it's harder for a newbie like me to tell whats what & I don't trust chain petstore labeling. This is why my 75g community will be stocked by a specialized fish/exotics store that I trust what they have is what they say and their health is more trustworthy.

Bronze Corys and young emerald Corys (brochis) can be confused. There's no way anyone could confuse adults, as the brochis can grow to more than 4 inches.

I agree with the differeent types in general do not school together each group tends to do it's own thing, my ottos think they are corys and school with all of them
