Adorable Pygmy Cory is Adorable.

The title says it all ;)
I love this little guy so much. He's so bold! This is his new favourite spot in the tank! He is not phased by Reuben at all.
I've been searching for almost 3 weeks, every pet shop in near by towns, and I feel like I have the only pygmy in all of Canada or something :s
It'll be sad when he gets school mates and then I lose track of which one he is D;

Wow, never seen one of those before. Where did you find him?

At a LFS in a tank full of bumblebee gobies and catfish. x.x
I go back there every time they get a shipment (Wednesday-Saturday usually), they say their supplier hasn't had them in forever..
I even called other well known fish stores in the area, and they sounded like they've never heard of Pygmy cories. :/
I'm going on week 3 with him, he's gonna get catfish sinking pellets tomorrow, I've just been feeding him betta food until now.
I guess they must be really rare, but they were so recommended on here that I got excited when I saw him. xD

Squee!!! Oh my god he is soooo tiny! When you get a school you have to take video of all of them squiggling around the bottom of the tank. He is freakin' adorable! This picture made my night! <3

Thanks guys, he appreciates the love <3
I showed my friend that helps me out, got me the tank and such. He has a huge tank full of fancy expensive discus. He looked at him and was like "why would you want that?" and I was like DDDDD:

No worries. Discus people can be snobs sometimes. Just like the people with 6-figure koi in their ponds. Your fish is the same species as my $10 koi. Your little guy is adorable and full of personality and we love him ^-^

I have sad news. I noticed his stripe was gone this morning, then I realized he was dead.. He has a huge chunk of his tail missing, and he was fine, so I'm gonna go ahead and blame Reuben. I'll have to test my water when I get home, but I just did a 40% change last night. :s I've baptized him Jake.
I'm really at a loss. I don't know what to do, I really want more fish. Reuben is so chill, he doesn't even flare at Gilbert, I'm so shocked. Jake was only about 1cm big.. I don't know if this is truly a safe species to keep.
I think I may try julii cories. I don't know.. :s
