Pygmy Cory

Product Description

The Pygmy Corydoras is a great nano catfish endemic to the Rio Basin in Brazil. These catfish are great additions to nano aquariums do to their small size and schooling behavior like other corydoras catfish. They have a common catfish appearance. They are silver in color with one black line through the center of the body. Pygmy Corydoras can be shy so they need appropriate tank mates and should be kept in groups of at least 5 or more.

Pygmy Corydoras often max out in size of just over an inch and are a great community fish for aquariums with fish of similar size and activity level.

The scientific name for the Pygmy Corydoras is: Corydoras Pygmaeus

We feed our Pygmy Corydoras a mix of frozen foods including daphnia, baby brine and cyclops. We occasionally feed them Northfin Veggie and algae wafers. Will accept live foods if prepared.

Nice fish.

All 10 +2 arrived alive and well. Everyone is still in quarantine finishing a round of dewormer, then it's on to my main display tank.

Healthy, adorable catfish

I received 6 healthy, plump little corys. After an hour of drip acclimation, they started exploring the tank immediately, and one day later they're running around midwater checking out their new home and almost entirely colored up. These guys are unbearably cute and they came in really healthy and energetic. I'll definitely be getting more when they come back in stock. Thanks, Flip Aquatics!
