No, they aren't even close to schooling. I wouldn't even call it shoaling. 3 IMO is not even an acceptable number. AT LEAST 4, preferably 5+.

Angelic, you were the one who said cories are algae eaters. Lol. And you have lucky Ottos, because my key word in my last post was "because *some* will not eat anything else."

I have 2 cories in my 10 gallon with my male Betta and they seem as happy as possible. none of them are lethargic or an "outcast". They bobble around on the bottom looking for food then get together to swim around a bit. The betta wants nothing to do with them, he is a total snob who kind of just pretends they aren't even there(which is a good thing imho).

I have 5 in my female tank and they act the same as the three in the other one :-/ No differenc ebetween 3 and 5 imho.

Clark - Red and Light Blue Veil Tail male. 10 Gallon(African theme)
Drama Queen - Dark Blue with some silver Half Moon female. 5 Gallon(Buddha, jungle theme)
Poseidon - Flesh color, silvery blue and red Crown Tail male in a 5 Gallon(Greek Theme)
Evee - Violet and blue femal with a black stripe. Veil Tail, in a 3 gallon(My daughter's Betta, Ocean Theme)
Betta Betta Betta Sorority Tank - R.I.P., only two survivors

I only do weekly water changes. I know I am a horrible person

My 10 gallon gang grew today. I now have 1 betta, 3 cories, 6 neon tetras, 10 white clouds and a baby pleco(he's on the exchange program). They all get along great.

Swim free little dudes!
