Yaay my pets at home have again improved their stock! And they now have a quarentine tank for the ones with deseases! It's getting somewhere! Anyway, they had tons of different cories to choose from. I like the panda but they just look so weenie teeny. I liked the peppered. Giving it another fortnight before anyone else goes in there so to let any effects from the new fish settle etc.

Juvenile pandas are indeed weenie teenie. :p They do get a little bigger, though still not as big in the body as things like peppered.

So you have to choose between the super-cute pandas and the extremely pretty peppered.. :p

I started with 4 bronze cories. They bred in the first 6 weeks of living in my 29gallon and 10 babies survived....if you like entertaining personable fish, cories are the way to go!!
Very easy to care for, the biggest is 2 inches, and they are very hardy!
After moving some of the juvies to another tank, I got a pair of peppered cories. They joined the existing school, adding more color.
In the evening, the cories will swim/dance in an intricate choreographed movement around the tank, in and out of caves, plants, logs, and up the sides of the tank!
They are so much fun!

Ravenwinds - if you mean your peppered cories are schooling with your bronzes...they are only doing it because they can't find enough of their own kind. I suggest buying another pair of peppered so that they can have their own kind. :)

Besides, I would enjoy having them breed...so I need more cories ( peppered) to let them choose their mates...

The juvies are even more playful...synchronous dance swimming all around the tank...interrupting guppies...I never saw a guppy put out and looking down its nose at another fish until the juvies!

They sound like my kinda fish! I like my tetras for their entertainment. I love watching them play amongst the leaves and chase each other. I definately think I might have to have some peppered cories. They had bronze aswell but the peppered are so pretty. Kyon seems to be quite an aggressive Betta but seems happy with the Tetras. I was trying to attack my cat through the glass earlier! Poor Benny boy looked stunned!

Haha! The betta was trying to get the kitty? I love bettas! The peppered cories are very pretty and they're "tough" enough to ignore a big, bad, betta with enough fins to attack the cat through glass!
