sorry i should've updated this but I have 4 glo fish and 2 cory catfish a peppered and an albino. everyone is getting along fantastically! i monitored very closely for the first 2 weeks to ensure no one was nipping or bullying each other and Dahvie is surprisingly very tolerant of his new fish mates :) They've been together for almost a month now.

Cory catfish are a schooling fish that need groups of 4+ . . .

10 Gallon Tank:
~Countless Pond Snails~1 Espe's Rasbora~1 Harlequin Rasbora~

5 and 5.5 Gallon Tanks:
~empty~

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

The groups of four also have to be the same species.

Which a peppered and an albino aren't.
Glofish also need schools of 6+. They are super active and really do better in the length of a 20 gallon.

Max, I strongly suggest taking the glofish and either the peppered or the albino cory back to the shop, and getting 3 more of the cory you choose to keep )R upgrading to a 20 gallon and giving everyone the schools they need.

Life.

If you keep the albino, you can get bronze and green(?) cory cats too. They are the same species just different colours.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

If you have platies already, I wouldn't recommend getting cories. You need at least 4-5 cories for them to be happy. Platies are livebearers and actually make a lot of waste.. Plus you already have a betta..
