Talking pygmy corys

So my p. Corys are finally in the tank and out of qt. They have got to be one of the cutest little fish ever, they add alot of life to the tank hustling around in and out of the smallest crevices in the plants!

I love my corys! And I'm pretty convinced my betta Aurora thinks she's one of them lol! She is always scavenging with them. It's the cutest thing

I've wanted to try pygmy cories for a while, you lucky bugger! I can't find them locally and don't feel like paying $100 for a few fish+shipping x.x
All cory species have no comprehension of the word "territory" if you have a fish with a territory that it wants to defend (male betta with bubble nest, male/female or mated ram pair with their turf) they will be constantly chasing the cories out of that area (and the corries will just turn around and go right back over).

I just recently placed 6 green Aeneus corys into my 55g. I absolutely love them! They added a whole different level of fun to my tank! Thinking about putting some more to the tank.

55g: 5 Serpae tetras, 6 Columbian tetras, 6 blue tetras, Harry Putter nerite snail, Sonny ivory mystery snail, 5 Dalmatian Molly's.
10g: lots of shrimp...blue and ghosts
10g: 6 blue tetras, Tigger orange striped nerite snail, 5 green fire tetras and lots of shrimp, and Bonnie, Sonny and Cher ADF frogs
5g: Nemo half moon Betta purple and white.

I have 6 in a 15g. They're too small and too active for my liking I wish they'd get bigger and just stay on the ground lol they're always flying all around the water column and walls

aqua---try Aquabid. Got some of mine from a breeder in CA, the shipping was pretty reasonable. And they use Kordon breather bags. I wish I could remember their ID.
