If the albinos are of the C. aeneus variety you can get bronze or green cories and they will school together. If the albinos are C. paleatus (wrong spelling I bet) they will school with peppered cories. Species matters more than coloring.

I can handle that, then. I just want to appeal to my parents to make them say yes!

Uhm.... Crap. lemme go check. Tetra eXtreme Algea Wafers.

No, I don't think a Goldfish would be okay in a 30 gallon. I really don't know. there are various opinions on minimuk tank size for Goldfish, like bettas.

*2 Bettas (for now RIP Ryu) *2 Goldfish *9 Guppies *1 Gourami *2 Chinchillas *2 Budgies *2 Dwarf Frogs *1 Dog *1 Cat *2 Hermit Crabs *2 3gs *1 10g *1 Pond *2 2gs

well it would be better than a 10! even something... just a bit bigger y'know. technically, smallest should be a 40, which'll cause little bit of stunting but not as bad as a 10

And okay... I'll post a pic of him/her sometime and have a post up :)

While if you would have to get a larger tank anyways it would be best to keep the cories in the ten gallon since although the goldfish and cory temperatures have a slight overlap you would likely have an uncomfortable goldfish and lots of baby catfish.

So how many gallons would be good for all 3, Sena?

Okay. I do not want ANY stunting. :( I hate to see bent spines!

@ Ajones My corys spawned when I did a warmer water change. Total accident. They ate almost all the eggs over a day and a half. The ones that I saved hatched but none of the babies survived. My tank is a tall and they probably couldn't make it to the top. I'm careful now about warmer water. But it was fun while it lasted. They laid about 100+ eggs. I have two females, two males (I think, one is hard to tell. Bigger then the two but smaller then big Momma who is obvious).

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Best for the bioload... especially if there is a pleco too, who needs room. I'd say safe bet is a 70 gallon.. here they are 300 dollars, and some decently short ones (not as looooong) and are not as big as your parents think in their heads. Having the goldie at 55 gallons alone, is okay with a good filter... so bigger, better :)

And geesh so if I get more cories they'll decide to spawn....lol.

The ONLY way i know Kia is a girl is because she layed eggs. Lol. Before that she was Akio.

:/ 70? That is never going to happen. Ever. What about 50-55?

how big is it, exactly? Can you tell me something that is similar in size?

You could get away with a 50-55, with double filters. That's the way I've seen it done when there are goldies in with something else in a 50-55.

So... Is it the tank or the amount of water they disallow? I mean I've seen people use koi in rain barrels as mosquito catchers, I've seen decent tubs used as "tanks" (connection tubes for more tubs sometimes... Complicated a little), or the collapsible quick-ponds... -throwing out ideas-

How do you tell your cories gender btw???

Goldfish and Kio ALWAYS need double filtration. Even if you had one Common in 75 gallons.
