But i could be wrong...
People have different opinions on this. I know of people keeping pygmy cories in 2.5 gallons and the pygmies do great. You just have to very diligent on keeping your water clean. 5 gallons is an appropriate amount of space for these little guys. Keep in mind, they only get around .75-1 inch compared Albinos which reach 3 inches.
I feed my cories 2 times a day. They need a lot of food because they are always moving! 3 times a week is way to little for them!
