I'll keep my fingers crossed for you finding more pygmy. I'm wavering on either pygmy or panda's for my 3rd tank. My 1st choice is the pygmy but they are hard to find here! (I'm in Alberta)
I have julii & habrosus in my other big tanks. They are best kept in groups of 3 or more. They will all school together except the albinos which need to be kept with just other albinos.
I understand the frustration I've only had 1 habrosus die, but to get my school of 5 julii's I lost 1/2 what I bought over 3 or 4 groups of 3 purchases :(
