Question Pygmys

It looks like none of my LPS or LFS has pygmy corys. Anyone know a good online site to buy them?
Right now I have a 10G w/ Colonel and his 2 tankmates a pepper cory and an albino cory.

He looks like mustard...

Why not try some chain stores? Like Petsmart or Petco. Maybe check Aquabid?

Why not add to the school of albino and pepper cories instead?

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster

Cories are pretty sensitive, so I'd avoid shipping if possible...if they survive the trip, they will be really stressed and susceptible to illness.

To be honest the albinos freak me out a bit. Right now Salt (the albino) has one white eye and the other's pink, (s)he swims constantly, the total opposite of Pepper, he/she's always hiding. I'll see what I can do, I'm worried they won't have enough space.
I'll be setting up a seperate 10/12g tank eventually. I'm just waiting something to put it on X) I'd like pygmys in there b/c there's less floor space.

I'd wait until you have the new tank set up before buying pygmy cories... they are more sensitive than albino/peppered cories. Petco/petsmart don't sell pygmy cories (except Petco in rare cases), you'll inly be able to find them at a fish specialty store or online. Blue Betta USA (online) sells them sometimes.
