What would it say if you put in 5 Zebra Danios for 10 gallon it is too glitchy for me and Cories are very active.

I have a group of 4 pygmy cories and they are great. They betta do not even notice them and they are really active cleaning the tank. My PH is 7.8 and just as high in gh/kh too but the cories seem to be doing very well despite how hard the water is.

I also have high pH and hard water, and my pygmy cories are thriving! They are super entertaining to watch. They are nocturnal, so don't count on them playing during the day. However, mine come out in the evenings and play in the filter stream. I love their itty bitty selves! They are ridiculously cute little fish, in my opinion. :) I have them in with neon tetras, who also are thriving. It's really more about what they are used to, as far as I can tell. Mine all came from my LFS, so they have no issues with the local water.

6 is generally the recommended minimum for pygmy cories, and supposedly they are good fish to have in with bettas.

Well I must be a fantastic fish keeper! lol. I don't do anything special.

Just keep a clean tank with frequent water changes.

ok. how frequent? I really like the peppered's, but the pygmies are cute too...

i think i rather start with the hardier cories such as the peppers and then work my way up to pygmies. I want to see how they will do in my params.
If they have to, they can end up having my 10 gal all to themselves later...
