Hm...have you tried the stocking calculator? It'll help you get a general idea of how many fish you can stock. tbh I've never kept cories so I don't know all that much about them.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

it says my PH of 7.8 is the MAX ph for cories, but will work.

I proceeded to add a total of 4 cories to the calculator, just to seeand it says 89% stocked.

Like we've been saying, they're shoaling fish...please add more if you're able to.

Edit: nvm, you posted before I did...

That stocking device is based on the amount of fish, not the bioload. :(

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Would 5 pygmy cories in a 10 gallon heated filtered tank with 50 percent water changes and 7.6 PH.

Bronze Cories grow 2 to three inches and are very active.
