Product Description

The habrosus corydoras (Salt and Pepper Pygmy Cory) is a extremely small schooling species of catfish that should be kept in groups of at least 5. Species of this corydoras are often very active swimmers, the entire group can be found schooling but will use driftwood and plants for cover if feeling threatened. The habrosus cory can be housed with a large variety of fish, especially nano species including dwarf shrimp. On occasion they can be seen eating dwarf shrimp fry, but the adults are usually safe.

These corydoras will display a light grey/tan body with blotches of silver and black broken striping. This broken stripe helps distinguish this species from the very similar species corydoras pygmaeus which has a solid stripe.

Add some salt & pepper

I unfortunately lost one within a couple of days, but I cant put the all the blame on flip, I arrived back home much later than i wanted after work that day so they sat in a cold house for hours without a heat pack, so I'm sure it got to that particular one. However the rest of them rallied and have been super active now that they're in their new home, all that being said, wouldn't hesitate to order again, definitely will in the near future.

Love them

These little “corys” are great for nano tanks, they swim in packs, my wife says they look like a group of “puppies” swimming around the tank wagging their tails. If or when I start another nano tank, the “Habrosus Corydoras” will be part of the tank.

Very Pleased

I would not hesitate to purchase fish from Flip Aquatics again.

Fantastic service, great fish!

I originally acquired 2 Corydora Habrosus from a local fish store, knowing I had seen them around and therefore assuming that I would be able to find more for a small shoal. However, all other shops were suddenly out of stock, with no restock date in sight. So I was very excited to find that Flip Aquatics had exactly the number I was looking for! I ordered the cories, and a new mystery snail. All were perfectly packaged, and very secure in their box. Shipping was fast, and I received email notifications upon shipping, expected delivery, and confirmed delivery -- which helped ensure that my order was not left setting out, and that I could bring it inside immediately to keep everyone safe. Everyone was alive and in great health, and packaged with clear instructions on Flip Aquatics's recommended acclimation method (with a very important disclaimer not to float fish using the packaged bags). Once acclimated and introduced to the tank, my new fish have continued to show no signs of illness or significant stress. They have settled in great with the original 2 Habrosus, as well as with my small shoal of Emerald Cories. They are active and playful, and I love their unique salt-n-pepper markings.

So cute

I love tiny fish and habrosus and pygmy cories always make me smile.They arrived looking great with a little room to grow and they went straight to nibbling around on everything and introducing themselves to my other cories.
