I have three of these in a 25 gallon and they are certainly a joy to watch. They forage for food nearly all day long, as well as swimming heartily back and forth. The two smaller ones are not shy at all and could care less if I'm watching or cleaning the tank, as they will even feed near my hand, and unlike the third cory, they love to swim in the front of the tank. The larger one is a little more timid, though. It's fun to watch them during feeding time... all three of them sharing a wafer. I also have a pleco in the tank, and while he loves his zucchini very much, the cories don't care much for it.
I bought 2 albino corys & 1 emerald green cory together at petco for they could get along & not be alone. Then a few months passed and there were like more than 100 eggs. A few days later I left for a few days, when I came home I saw 2 baby albino corys.
i bought 2 emerald corys and i love them. they get along well with my baby muskies (dont worry i wont let them eat my corys). if u r reading this go buy a cory or 2.
I have two in a five gallon tank, and they are the best fish I ever had!
We had one Emerald Cory in our 55 gallon Turtle Tank. Then we got a second. They always swim together and do a really good job of cleaning up after the turtles. This weekend, I was cleaning out the aquarium, doing a water change and I found 3 baby emerald Corys in the tank. I have no clue when this happened but it sure was a great surprise. Hopefully these little ones will make it and gow up. This was completely unexpected.
The easiest to take care of fish that you will probably ever have. I recommend them for any size aquarium, and if you have a 20 long or higher i believe that you should get at least three. The greatest things as they keep your tank clean, and cichlids hardly mess with them (except for my tiger oscar).
We've had an emerald cory since 1998 (seven years!). He's moved with us from Michigan to Connecticut to New York, outliving lots of fish and surviving the cut when we took all his tank-mates back to the pet store to make moving easier. He's our favorite. After reading other comments here I think I have to get him some cory friends. He seems a little depressed and could use the company.
My mother has two albino cories and I believe she still has her emerald still. They are a very hardy fish that have all grown up in a 10-gallon tank for a little over 5 YEARS now. I recommend this fish for any tank - Beginner and Seasoned - as this fish is a joy to watch and an excellent tank cleaner. I have yet to purchase my own cories as soon as my new 29-gallon tank is better established.
I have two albino corys, one Julli cory and two emerald corys. They are in a 55 gallon with one pangasius cat, a pearl flowerhorn, a pleco, a banjo cat, and a spotted green puffer. Everyone gets along very well. The corys love to school together and you can tell the albinos are a pair - they are always together. I keep my temp for all of these fish at 78 degrees and feed a very large variety of food. The corys love bloodworms and beefheart! They have grown a lot since I first got them and I add 1 tablespoon of salt per every 5 gallons of water in my tank with no problems to these fish. Everyone in this tank is extremelly healthy and I have not had problems with any of them. Good luck to everyone!
I used to keep just one cory with 3 angelfish. i thought it was a dull fish, always still and at a corner, never active except when frightened. however, after adding 5 cories -- it totally changed! it got lively, chased after them curiously, and appeared sniffing at them! He loved their company! Now they are often travelling together, and they share food like good siblings. The best thing about them -- they never get jealous over whose share of food is more! Avoid salt at all, they are extremely sensitive to it.
