Gallon requirements for ...

Hello everyone :D I've been lately looking into Pygmy Cories and I was thinking of buying some. I'm just curious on how many gallons per Pygmy Cory because since their much smaller than your "average" Cory, the gallon requirements must be different! Im also looking into buying some so if you live in the US and have Pygmy Cories you want to get rid of, I'll buy them off of you!!!

I would say 10 gallon minimum because they are happier in schools of 6 or more. They're very active!

+1, just because they are smaller doesn't mean much. These guys are active and I wouldn't happily put them into anything smaller than 10 gallons to fully enjoy their beauty and little quirks! Yes people put them in 5 gallons which is alright but not in the best interest of the fish IMHO, a school of 10+ will be amazing to watch, you can easily fit 10 in a 10 gallon.

Ok :) so if I wanted to put a betta in a 10 gallon how many do you think I will then be able to fit ? Maybe about 7-8?

You could do a full 10 with a Betta if he's calm and doesn't want to eat them lol it's up to you, if you only feel comfortable putting 7-8 that's perfectly fine too! Make it a nicely planted tank and they'll all love it!

Online you can find them if that's what you're asking. I personally love gunpowderaquatics.net or just look on AquaBid.com to see if you find anything you like there :)
