I have six in my tank and am quite happy that I do. They are either lying motionless on the bottom or moving around nibbling on the bottom of the tank. They seem to move more when I'm not hovering by the tank. They are fun to watch and I enjoy having them as an addition. When its feeding time they go nuts and zoom around while gobbling up their food. They keep the bottom of my tank nice and clean.

I got two of the green catfish and I have a 20 gallon tank and a 10 gallon. They are doing wonderful. In my 10 gallon tank I have baby guppies and the catfish isn't eating them and theres a lot of babies so its good that the fish isn't eating them.

Emerald Green Cory Catfish
I love these little guys! They are so cute & fun to watch. I recently bought 4 of them.. 1 peppered, 1 green, 1 skunk, & 1 albino. They are great bottom feeders & will eat food that has fallen to the bottom of your tank. They will swim around a little, but mostly stay at the bottom. They will go up to the surface for a gulp of air every now & then too. They are very active, lively little fish. I had a peppered cory that lived 3 years & after he died I got these 4. They are some of my favorite fish. I have a BN pleco in my tank also, but he doesn't seem to bother them. I def recommend these guys, especially if you tend to over feed your fish... they will be happy to eat up the left overs.
