I know many people say cory cats shouldn't be with Oscars. And I believed the same thing, but through trial and error, I have found that it works for me and my Oscars just fine. :lol: ....... So I know it shouldn't work, but it has for me. ;)

I LOVE that pleco! I don't know anything about Cory Cats... but those are cool looking. Glad they do well together. How long have they been together?

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!

I suppose it's a little bit like people who keep cats, rats and birds together in harmony, not everyone can get away with doing that.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

haha thats great! The one red tiger I got from a lady who didnt want him anymore was kinda like that. He was about 8 inches when I got him and she gave me this little electric yellow cichlid with him because they were buddies! lol She didnt want him after the oscar killed everything in the tank except this particular cichlid. I actually ended up giving the little electric to a friend of mine with a 125 filled with just electric yellows! He was actually beating up my smalled oscar!

Thanks everyone for your comments. :cheer: .good or bad. ;)

I have had 1 emerald cory cat with my larger Red Oscar since the red oscar was small. I always thought in the back of my mind that when the Oscar got big i would have to find a new home for the cory. But as time went on the cory did great, and the Oscar didn't bother it at all, and neither did other Oscars or Large JD that spent time with him, So I decided to take the leap and add 2 more for their great cleaning abilites.
.
If you watch some of my older videos you can spot the single cory throughout. THen in the later ones you will see 3 doing great. I like how they sift through the sand also.

Here is one of my first Vids. THe middle tank is my Red Oscar when it was small with the cory cat. :
