You can't deny the fact that this is a fish that lives in groups of hundreds in the wild, you are denying them their basic needs by not allowing them a proper shoal.

By your logic 10 is not enough they are schooling growing barbs in a 20 gallon they are blind so they can not even see each other it would be over stocking next you will say I need to get another emperor tetra 3 in a 20 gallon is okay they have food plants and protection to light. bu your logic we have to keep one Betta in a 500 gallon tank. I am not denying I added one when they went to 20 gallon and they are shoaling.

Do people not hear themselves on here? So many people admit that they have made mistakes when they started keeping fish but then turn around and belittle the first timers who are making the same mistakes. I have recieved lots of great information from this site, no doubt life saving info for my betta. BUT I have also seen people attack and judge others for asking a question. People often read a simple question from a poster and assume they are doing everything wrong and get very nasty. It's wrong here and it's wrong in person. Don't assume because someone may be making mistakes with their fish care that they are awful people who abuse animals. They are just misinformed or uninformed. Like YOU used to be. Offer friendly advise, don't shame them. Shaming someone will not make them better pet keepers, giving them advise without judgement will. Be helpful not hurtful.

What do you mean, but let us get back to the fish abuse we need more fish awareness campaigns.

*She.

They need to be kept in groups as Cories are shoaling fish and they need at least 4-5 to feel secure. Olympia was giving info to you and you're just getting offended by that. She was being helpful not offensive.

Yay I'm a girl!
Any fish profile will tell you that cories and tetra are group oriented fish and need to have a nice sized group to interact with.

I really wish I could get two more but they are healthy and i already have enough fish in there I even give them sand and they comb it for me I want nothing more than to get a 30 gallon and add two more and move my fish there but I am sure my parents do not want me to get a bigger tank also they are surfacing the average amount I really appreciate the help they are some of the healthiest albino Cories i have ever seen I see them shoaling and combing and eating and being funny when they surface. Also they act even healthier and eat then pet store Cories.
