"Emerald green Corys are very easy to care for and very intelligent. They do well in tanks above 5 gallons, but you need to be careful about how tall the tank is. Corys can actually breathe air if their gills are wet, so they occasionally swim to the top. Because they spend so much time at the bottom that they can't really swim too far straight up, so the tank can't be taller than a little more than a foot and a half. I would recommend them for anyone who has a freshwater tank, though you should definitely get more than one. They get sicker when they are alone; take it from me. I've got 2 cool stories about corys. 1: I once had a cory jump out of the tank during a water change. That little fish used its fins to propel itself halfway across the room, no problem with being in the air at all! 2: I once had a male beta and 2 corys in a tank together. Male betas are really aggressive and usually attack other fish by putting up their frills (like a lion mane). My catfish had absolutely NO problem with this and just swam right by. I think that made the beta confused. Last thing: I once had two corys get sick, though their other tank-mate had no problem. They kept falling over on their sides and being unable to get up. When they swam, they were fine, but when they stopped, they just fell over. They could hardly breathe because their gills were pressed on the floor. They died in 3 days; no medicines helped. It was creepy. If anybody knows why, I'd like to know so I can fix it if it happens again."
