Default what corys to go with blue acaras

i have a couple of peppered corys in my 64L tank and think they do an amazing job of keeping the floor clean so figured on having some in my 190L,
the blue acaras are not fully grown, at a guess about 2" or just over, what corys would be best to get that will not end up as food when the acaras are fully grown?
a cory that would grow to around 3" to be safe i guess

robinae get pretty big...so do the brokis...most fish do not bother cories though..too much armor and sharp spines..

As long as you don't add pigmy cories, all others should be fine.

pigmy's sound like small food for a 6-8" fish eating troublemaker lol

i wouldn't try any of the dwarf species or any of the aspidora species ; but would stick with the brochis or other of the larger cories...but...research them as some like warmer water and some like colder water...
