A normal corydoras is reasonable at 1-3 dollars. A pygmy, or other semi-Rare cory is reasonable from 3-15 dollars, though 15 is really high. A rare corydoras can be 20+, I've even seen some newly developed color morphs go for 40!

The ones at my lfs are about 8 dollars. On aquabid I can get 10 for $25 plus $15 priority shipping. So it would be four dollars per cory. Not sure if the shipping stress is worth it. Can they handle it?

I wouldn't put a fish through shipping if you can find the same thing at your LFS. Cory's aren't as hardy as Bettas, I think.

The thing with corydoras is they have a poison they release when stressed. Normally just irratating to a fish, in the bag it is deadly!

Remember, it only takes a few moments to kill them. The best thing is to make sure they get stressed when being caught, so they release all of the poison.

Molly will breed like mad, continuously and even two of the fry is too much.
Molly are also messy like goldfish.

Guppy don't drop fry anywhere as quickly as molly, they're more of a slow production line.
