How many?

Post by William21 »

I’m hoping to set up a 60 Litre cube soon and apart from some shrimp for cleanup I’d like to have some Corydoras but wondering how many? I’ve seen some small smudge spot Corys I like the look of. The tank will be well filtered with an external filter.

Most likely a 40 * 40 * 40 cm tank. With a 0,16 square meters footprint.

I have no clue what a "smudge spot Cory" is, but I would assume you could keep some 20 4-5 cm Corydoras in such a tank, if these are the only fishes

It’s a Dennerle 38 x 38 x 43cm deep.

In that case 19. Footprint is what counts, not liters.

smudge spot Corys = Corydoras similis

Thanks for that. In that case I may get several species, I’ve always been fond of Panda’s as well.

Just seen this online, seems to agree at 1cm per Litre.
