What else is in the community?
Corys wont harm their own, and you will probably find the little one would settle in with the group of adults fairly quickly :)

GINGERLOVE, the rest of the community consists of,
Otos,
Zebra Danios,
Gouranis
Neon tetras,
Pepper Corys,
3 boy Guppies.
All said to be peacfull tank-mates.

The Cory gang now consist of 5 adults, (2 females and 3 males), 2 teenagers, 1 not yet a teenager, and Tiddles. making 9 in all. Its sort of getting a little too large I think so maybe if there are any more arriving I might swap those for 2 or 3 girl Guppies the appease the desires of the 3 boy Guppies as 2 of the latter are showing distintly unmentionable activity. :)

The only one I would have worried about would have been the gourami, depending on type. But if they haven’t bothered your cory so far i would say they would be fine and i think at 10mm they would be too big to be a meal for any of your inhabitants :)

Hi RedLee, well the little one is certainly well camouflaged; I copied the photo and put it thorugh my PC to get a good look. I love his/her little whiskers, the same colour as the substrate. My own experiance today has been to net Tiddles from the Kintergarten Tank, and place him/her in the community tank. I don't suppose I will see the little fella agin until about 5 - 6 weeks time, that is if he survies, but in the meantime, I have definitely identified 2 teenagers, as I originally thought there was only 1. The tank will be getting rather full when they all start growing....... and breeding. ! :( The time will soon arrive for some decision making, as I want to add to the 3 boy Guppies.

Yes it was hard to spot.
The other 5 were out looking for food but i noticed this one move.

I'm sure the little one will be fine in your main tank. :)

Perfectly correct PLANKTON Daddy popped in as he saw the camera, and course as a family they can swim out togther. I am hoping to catch all 8 of the Corys together. "Tiddles" has not been seen since I took him/her from the Kintergarten Tank and let loose in the Community, but there are plenty of places to hide so hopefully he/she will join the rest sometime. That will up the total to 9; unless there are other unseen fry which are hiding, which is very likely. If the Cory family gets too large then I think a but of swapping for some girl guppies will be called for.

They look great together Jon, I really like how the colour shows up on your white gravel mine are on black sand and kind of blend in until you get close, I really think they are underrated corys, active, hardy and quite pretty up close :)
