    Have a chance to pick up 10-15 hasborus cory and was wondering if they would be ok to put into my 40 breeder with current stocking of...

    10 rummynose tetra
    10 cardinal tetra
    5 bronze cory
    5 pepper cory
    1 pair of apisto trifasciata

    what do you all think? I have another tank i could put them into but would like to have them in the main viewing tank.

    Adding 10 of those Cories would be borderline stocking, but doable. (good filtration & reasonable wcs)
    15 might be pushing the envelope a touch. Your call.

    weekly 50ish water changes, and running a AC 110 and a fluval 205 for filtration. I was more worried about them getting pushed around to much by the bigger cories.

    I'd be more concerned about the apistos being territorial during breeding. Corys don't seem to get that territory concept, they go wherever. The bigger corys are probably too big for the apistos to hurt if they wanted to shoo them but dwarves...hmm, I just don't know, I haven't kept trifasciata. That is a lot of bottom fish & habs are more bottom than some dwarfs ...Do you have room in another tank as a back up plan? Habs are adorable, be hard to resist...
