true adam. but the JD lived in the big tank with the Oscars and corys for a month or so. around january this year. and the JD chased the corys more than the oscars did, but eventually realized he couldn't catch them and left them alone. those corys are great little escape artists. and that aspect is underestimated a bit because of there pudgy shape.

this one actually looks alot like mine. i think this might be what mine is, and it appears there is a slight difference from the "emeralds". though i could be wrong.

I think the ones I saw at the lfs might have been the hognose. They were more of a gray color and had a longer looking nose. They also sold emerald ones separately at about 1" in size. It seems there are three species of brochis. It could be they are selling the emeralds at a larger size and calling them brochis. I just never saw corys that big before and thought they were a different kind.

yeah, if you are going to try cory's with an Oscar. Get them at full size while the O's are small. that gives them the best chance. ........and IF it works out, they are great little clean up guys. :)

I have a Cory in my tank with my 3" Oscar and they sit right together like they're buds. Once in a while my Oscar will give the Cory a nudge but I really like the Cory and as stated previously, there's no way my Oscar would catch the Cory, he's one of the fastest, slickest little fish I've seen. I'm think 0-60 in half a second, LOL. :)

cories eventually sleep, and oscars eventually learn to hunt in the night
