    Just wondering what experiences others have had! I have 2 corys that are now about 10 years old (1 green, 1 peppered) and a dozen that are around 7-8.

    How hsve others fared with corys?

    That's a sign of great care by you! IMO, like pretty much all catfish, they'll live a LONG time given reasonable care. I'd be curious to see who's beat 10yrs!

    10 years maybe a little high, I had Cory Robinae that lived for about 7+ years before they all "passed away" one at a time, and then replaced with just simple Pepper cats now. But they too are now passing the 5year mark.

    7-8 is very common with good care.

    I've at least 8 cory years before I had to rehome & move. Your good care is a testament to their longevity!
