I don't think even the largest altum will go for these...

I wouldn't try keeping C. habrosus with large Altums.
They will get stuck in an Altum's throat just as easily as many have found out the hard way with Otocinclus.

Are these cories that small Larry? I know they are just over an inch... but though they were on the bulky side, not thin like otos. This said, I'm thinking adults... if they are young habrosus, you'd better take Larry's advice.

I was raising hundreds of Corydoras habrosus per year for a long time.
Very large female C. habrosus are probably Altum safe but males and subadults are probably not.
Most C. habrosus sold are young of the year imports so they haven't attained their maximum size yet.
