I don't have cories, but the usual suggestion is 4+ (the more the better). That's not my personal input though, so I'm not entirely sure.

In nature, corys live in groups numbering in the dozens, even hundreds. Definitely not a naturally solitary fish. In my experience, a group of 4 will stay together and act more "natural".

Hm... two of my corys love to hang out together. The third one tends to like to either swim in loops on the other side of the tank or play tag with my betta.

I have two albino corydoras, and 3 peppered. The two albino are constantly swarming around the tank together while the peppered do their own thing, examining every piece of decor and being typical. Poop.

Your albinos are probably c. aeneus. Get a couple bronze corys, and they'll hang with your albinos like 4 peas in a pod!

I've never seen a bronze cory. The only ones I've seen stocked at my local pet stores are albino, peppered, and emerald green. I don't think I'll be adding any more, though. I'd be damned if my bio-load isn't exhausted already, and unless a problem arises, they'll be staying as is. Guess it's time to harvest more vespene gas.

And if it makes you feel any better, I lol'd at aeneus. Maturity, ftw.

A fish store without bronze corys??? What's this world coming to??????

I don't know what's more disturbing...the fact that I knew what vespene gas is, or that I just expained it to my wife in order to keep her from calling the guys in white coats!

LOL.

And yeah, the pet stores I'm closest to don't have the greatest selections. They definitely require more minerals. :<
