    Corydoras ( cory catfish)
    Hi, all i was just wondering what kind or breed would be good to put in with endlers. Also open to other cleaner fish. I have noticed that my endlers miss alot of there food. Thanks in advance

    Any should work from what I know about Cory cats. The main thing will be getting some that will work in the size tank you have. I say this all the time but Otto Cats are great. ;)

    otto cats do not work well in a heavily filtered tank, I found all three of the ones that I bought stuck in filter intakes :(

    Which is why I use a pre filter on the intake.

    Most corys would work pretty well with endlers. If you wanted to go with the kind of concept I went with and keep it a mini tank, you could always pick up some C.Habrosus or C.pygmaeus. Habrosus look like a regular cory but only get to one inch. Pygmaeus are more of a mid to bottom swimmer, and look similar to an otto.

    I have ottos.... mine dont get stuck..... BUT they have A LOT of space to move... I am filtering almost 10x so....

    Ottos wont eat the leftover food... that will be for Corydoras

    I have corydoras with bristlenose plecos, siamese algae eaters, and now an otto with guppies & 2 endlers that I just picked up about a week ago. All are doing excellent.
