    I see I'm in the wrong Wisconsin city for good Cory talk! I'm a little late to the post but here goes.
    Aspidoras spilotus- 12 adults -100+ fry
    Aspidoras C118 - 3 adults - 30+ fry
    Aspidoras ? (possibly albater sp. "black fin" - working with Eric Bodrock to figure it out now) - 3 adults - 10+ fry
    Brochis splendens - 4 adults
    C. adolphi - 5 young adults
    Longfin C. aeneus - 20 adults 100's of fry
    C. cf. arcuatus 1 adult(looking for more- it's a skunk cory with gold between the stripes on top)
    C. axelrodi - 5 young adults
    C. bilineatus - 6 adults
    C. cf. brevirostris (Columbia) 6 adults -got these from aquatic clarity (he told me C. brevirostris don't come from Columbia, lol) I believe they are C154 but not 100% on that yet
    C. concolor - 6 young adults
    C. ehrhardti - 6 adults 12 large fry
    C. habrosus 4 adults including "Sammy Davis" my one-eyed habrosus that's been in my tanks for years! (The only fish I have ever named, and probably will ever name)

    wow. Do you keep them in species only tanks? Community tanks? Wading pools in your back yard? Got a favorite? How'd you get into cories? Do I ask too many questions?

    I have about 40 tanks in my basement, I keep many in species only tanks- typically 10s and 20s. Usually combine the younger groups in 20's or larger. They aren't ready to breed yet anyways. I keep some groups in divided "long" tanks- e.g. 20 longs, 33s. That way if one group starts laying eggs it sometimes prompts the others to start- hormones in the water maybe? I also have a bunch of dedicated "fry" and "growout" tanks. I've liked Cory's since I was 7, got really into them after getting a few species to breed in the past 2 years. I've only bred 9 species so far and am really just getting started. Im by no means a "master" there are a few people out there that have bred more than 50 sp. of cory, and one guy thats bred 130! really like aspidoras right now, but my favorite changes all the time :)

    Very cool. I'm just starting out with cory's, and think they have great personalities (it pains me to see LFS employees selling single cory's to people). I like the subtle differences in coloration and their "good manners" in a mixed tank. I get a lot of my advice from Planet Catfish, but if you have any other resources to recommend, I'd love to know about them.

    I <3 corycats!

    Personalities, yes... One of my c trilineatus is my second boyfriend. He is a great little guy. We got into a fight, but we are doing well.

    Planetcatfish.com is amazing. Another free resource is Eric Bodrock's site alloddballaquatics.com. If you are really crazy (like me) you can join Corydorasworld.com. It is a site with a forum and loads of pics and information about corys based in England. The owner is Ian Fuller (the guy that has bred 130 different sp.) and he does a pretty good job of making sure all questions get answers, etc. It costs about $20 a year to join. I did it for the first time this year, and I haven't decided whether it's something I'm going to do every year or not yet. Ian has written several books with Hans Evers (of Amazonas magazine) They are a really good and accurate Cory resource as well, but a bit pricey. You can get signed copies of those books from Eric Bodrock from his site or on aquabid - that way you don't have to pay overseas shipping. Scotcat.com has a lot of catfish info, as do several other German and English sites (use Chrome with google translator for the german ones - works great!). That's about all I know. I think someone should start a better U.S. cory/catfish club or website with a forum, but it hasn't really been done yet, or if it has it didn't last.

    Now that Frank Falcone is backing off you are in the running for the go-to guy for Corries. What city are you in Milwaukee? Any chance you might consider coming to one of our meetings? If so announce ahead of time what you would have for sale, You have fish on your list I would love to add to what I am working with, and I am still struggling to get my corries to spawn faithfully, so I would love to pick your brain.
