the pygmies are more delicate and dont adapt as easily, so i think i will stay away from those for now.
Albinos are the LARGEST. Not the smallest.

I saw the catfish part, sorry! Olympia told me this, I completely forgot. xD Oh, and Pandas like a cooler tropical temperature like 72-75.

I agree with this. Upgrading is recommended...I'd hold off buying them until you can properly house a larger group.

it says they need even softer water, acidity levels higher than regular cories, and are harder to find and adapt.

If i do choose pygmies how many?
