I've been offered a couple of Tatia by a friend who's closing down their tank. Most of my tanks have Corys in so I'm concerned that they'll eat all the bloodworm, etc, I put in before the Tatia get a chance, with the latter being nocturnal/crepuscular. If I take these fish on, would they live with a Cory community or would they be better on their own?

I keep mine with corys without any issues. They don't even touch the cory eggs or fry. They come out when they sense food, even during the day.

Ah! That's a relief. She's a very good friend and she tends to let me have fish she's particularly fond of as she trusts me to keep them safe and sound. I'd hate to have to tell they'd starved to death!

I'll second Graham's reply.I received a few young Tatia Intermedia from him & they come out as soon as I put food into the tank.They dash round the tank like performing seals balancing earthworm pellets in their lips.They are in with Aphyosemions who are very keen on their food as well but the Tatias don't starve that's for sure!

They seem to have settled in OK. I'm still a bit concerned that they're the least forceful of the inhabitants of their tank so I might move them again. So far, so good, though.

Thanks.
