I noticed regarding the green lasers tend to hide in the Java moss that I have in the tank....they seem very shy, which is not true with the corydoras eques who swim around the rank all day.

Welcome to PlanetCatfish! So you decided to start with eques and green lasers? Nice choices. And eques are typically not cheap, so I hope you have success caring for the three remaining.
As far as personality, most corys tend to be out in the open and not hiding, unless they sense your presence. I'm surprised that your green lasers hide so much. Perhaps with time they'll come out more. Do you have them all in the same tank with the eques?
Thank you for your reply. Yes, I really liked the color of the green lasers so I purchased 10 to start because I read that they are most happy when there is a big group. I then saw the Eques a week later at the same store and they seemed very friendly and active, and I saw on TM aquatics that these cories are relatively hard to come by. Since there were 5 left, I figure I should get them because they are very nice looking too. Unfortunately two did not make it, as you know from my last post. They were all placed in one single bag and it took me an hour to get home by car and in retrospect, I should have asked the lady to bag them separately...In any case the three I have are doing great, eating quite a bit and getting very fat. So are the green lasers but I hardly ever see them even when there are 10 which is surprising. A few brave greens like to swim with the eques. I do know they are eating though and I am feeding them heavily because I read that they need to eat...
