Hello everyone :) 

I was wondering what are all the different types of cory? it'd be great if you could list the names and/or tell me about a certain type :)

Also, how many should you keep? is there a specific amount?

Do they do well With Platys?

There are hundreds of species of cory, too many to name here, all very peaceful fish that do well in most community tanks.
They prefer a sand substrate as they sift sand through their gills filtering particles of food, & do best in groups of 6+
Have a look on Planet catfish for all the varieties

There are well over 150 different species of corydoras, so it's not really possible to give you a list!
 
All corydoras should be kept in ag roup of at least six of their own species.
 
Most will live alright with platies, but you need to check each species, as most prefer soft water, whereas platies like it on the hard side.

Corys go VERY well with Platy fish. that is what I keep in my platy tank. i usually go with a dwarf cory or albino cory. they have great personalities!

They meant the water type wise corys like more softer water than platys i think, but they are peaceful with them yes.

Platys do well in soft or slightly medium water. its pretty easy to home them together :)

A good cory for you may be the Panda Cory (2 inches) or the Salt and Pepper Cory (1.4 inches)
