Your cories won't flat out die or anything if you only have 2, but they'll still be happier in larger groups...I'd consider adding a few more if possible and upgrading like you suggested.

If you want to buy cories online you'll have to acclimate them, obviously. The advantage to buying cories by your place is that they're already used to the water params.

i think i will buy cories from my LFS, because they have bred in my water at the LFS>

Which cories are better, i will be getting 2 for now, and yes, i will upgrade.

-peppered?
-green?
-ablino?

I have heard the peppered or albinos are the smallest? Is this true?

They should adapt, shouldnt they?

Here. This is the Bronze/Albino. It's just the color, not a different type. Pygmy and Pepper.

You meant the Emerald Cory instead of green, right? ^^

Emerald cories aren't cories, they are bronchis splendens, not related to corydoras aenus (bronze/albino), bronze/albino get pretty big (the largest actually) so a 20 gallon is reccomended. Peppereds and Pandas'd be fine in a 10 though. Cories need a shoal of 4 as others have said. Don't get 2 and get more later. Might as well just get them all at once.

In order of largest to smallest:
-Bronze/Albino (20 gallon is better)
-Peppered/Panda (fine in a 10)
-Hasborus/Pygmy (fine in a 10)

You could fit probably 4-5 of the peppered/panda in a 10 and 6 of the hasborus/pygmy. Pandas aren't has hardy. For some reason they don't last as long!!

Pygmy Cories are a different species Bettas are bred in tanks they cant turn around in and as I said your tank is too small.

hmm

it is between the peppered and albinos, as they are the smallest.

the pygmies are more delicate and dont adapt as easily, so i think i will stay away from those for now.


EDIT

Maisy, thank you.


I think i will stick to 2-3 peppered cories.
