Warm water corydoras?

Post by catfishchaos » Fri Sep 19, 2014 1:18 pm

are any of these species known to do well in warm water?

CW051
C.Duplicaerus
C.adolfoi
C.Barbatus
C.gossei
C.matae
Black cories (Don't know the C-number but I've seen them here before..)

I know sterbai do well but I would something a little less common. My water temp is aprox 27-28 Celsius 80-82 but I could make it a bit lower provided the L134 don't mind so I could go as low as 25-26 celsius 75-78 would any species listed do better in said temps? I'm only posting here because I could not find the info in the Catelog for atleast 3 of those species, Then again I'm not to familiar with it.

Thanks in advance!
I can stop keeping catfish whenever I want. I just don't think I'll ever want to do that...

Gossei, Seussi, Adolfoi, B. Splendens would all be ok.

S. barbatus is a absolute no.

I'd avoid metae also. I don't know much about CW051.

I have Corydoras caudimaculatus in an 85 degree tank and they do very well.
Good fish are spawned and raised in Burlington.
