Bronze corys are a schooling fish. Keep them in groups of at least five. Cory catfish tankmates can include most community tank fish as long as they are non-aggressive and friendly in nature. Otocinclus catfish, tetras, swordtails, and other corys can be a good fit. You will not want to put corys in the same tank with oscars, Texas cichlids, or Jack Dempseys. They can injure corys or may eat them.
