I went to one of my favorite LFS yesterday to look for some dwarf cory cat and they did not have any the owner said he would order me some but then today he called me to tell me his supplier did not have dwarf corys and it would be several weeks before he could get any so I went to another good LFS today and they had them so I bought 4 to go into my tank. These guys are so little they are about the same size as my ember tetras and I love watching them swiming all around the tank and they seem to love all my plants. She also had a solid white half moon male betta that I wish I had gotten he was awsome. I am going to call her tomorrow and see if she will hold him for me until Saturday afternoon when I get off work. So wish me luck I hope no one bought him today. Here is a picture of two of the little guys. The other two were swimming around to much for me to get a clear shot.

Yep, they're teeny alright. We have a difficult time getting them in stock. Our supplier (Segrest) says they're wild caught, therefore not always available.

Fantastic bottom feeders for smaller tanks!

They are alot of fun to watch just like my regular sized ones are in my bigger tanks. This one is in my bedroom so I know I am going to enjoy watching them each night before I sleep and seeing them first thing in the morning and while I get ready for work.

There are 3 common species of "dwarf" cory, you have two in that photo. The top fish is Corydoras pygmaeus, and the lower fish is Corydoras habrosus.

If you can get more, I strongly recommend it; these corys are very social, and frequently die off within a matter of weeks if kept in small numbers. At least 6 of each species, or if you can't get six of each, increase the group to 9 or more. Their chances will improve dramatically.

You can check the profiles (click the shaded names) for more info on the species.
