    Default Anyone keeping bronze cories at 30C ?

    I'm thinking of keeping a group of bronze cories. My tank is running at 30C has anyone kept bronze cories at that temperature?

    That's a bit warm for a cory you would be better off with one of the smaller warm water pleco

    Yep, I keep bronze corys with my discus at 30c, had no issues at all with them in fact that's how I grow out my young ones once they're a bit bigger as they grow faster with the abundance of food and water changes.

    I have 4 in one Discus tank and 5 in another Discus tank. Temps for both tanks is 30c or 86f. Have had them for well over a year and they’re doing great, clean the bottom nicely, and are a joy to watch as they always are rummaging around. They are not the prettiest of the Cories, but they’re holding up well doing the cleaning job flawlessly.

    Over the years, I've compiled a list of Corydoras that do well at 30C and those that don't.

    RECOMMENDED:

    C. sterbai
    C. aeneus
    C. adolfoi
    C. robineii
    C. julii
    C. panda (adults only)
    C. davidsandsi
    C. loxozonus
    C. knaacki
    C. aeneus (Green Laser)
    C. axelrodi
    C. schultzei
    C. arcuatus

    NOT RECOMMENDED:

    C. trilineatus
    C. habrosus (discus snack)
    C. paleatus
    C. aeneus (Orange Laser)
    C. panda (juveniles)

    Hmm, maybe discus are not my only obsession?

    Nope. I just killed off a batch of those! After losing 4, the rest of the batch went into an angelfish tank. I have empirical evidence that they do fine at 78F, but go belly up at 83F.

    i used to keep lots of high end corydoras with my discus at 85 degrees. mainly because i didnt have another tank. it works, but i didnt feel safe and risk 2k worth of corys. so i lowered the temp to 80. and everybody is happy.
