Does anyone have them, or know more about their habits in a community tank with tetras? Can they survive and with what kind of fish can they survive with?

Simply put, yes, they will be fine with your tetras. 

There are many fish profiles here on Badman's, including the Adolfo.  Here is a link to the Adolfo cory

Hi Walter,
How big is your tank?  Looks like you may only have a 10 gallon from your previous posts.  If this is correct, do not get adolfois.  They are beautiful fish but do need to be in schools, 5 or more.  They grow to be 2 inches or so and they are thick, solid fish, so they will weigh heavily on the bioload of the tank.  Your tank is definitely overstocked if it is indeed a 10 gallon.  Please do not add anymore fish, but if you must look at pygmy cories.  Hope this helps.

And to answer your question they are extremely peaceful and will get along famously with any peaceful tankmates.
Take care,

May I ask.....what in the heck does Ed's post have to do with a vendor in Cali?  Or anywhere for that matter???

As Mary said, unless you plan on upgrading before, PLEASE don't add any to your tank.
