Pygmy Corydoras are absolutely one of our favorite small fish. If you're looking for a cute, small, schooling fish, these guys are for you! These Pygmy Corydoras we sell are bred in captivity by hobbyist and are not wild-caught. This means that they come from a sustainable source and are typically much hardier compared to wild-caught Pygmy Corydoras. Due to their smaller size and adorable schooling behavior, these fish have become pretty sought after in the hobby. They are a smaller fish and can grow to a a max size at about 1 inch which makes them perfect for shrimp tank.
We recommend keeping these guys in groups of 5 or more for them to feel safe in a large school.
Pygmy Corydoras are pretty easy to care as long as they are introduced to a mature, cycled tank. They can acclimate to a wide range of parameters. The following are our water parameters we keep them at:
Our Tank Water Parameters

GH: 7 to 8
KH: 3 to 4

We feed them a mix of live baby brine shrimp, frozen daphnia and high-quality flake food.
