Corydoras pygmaeus (Pygmy Cory) — Seriously Fish

In the maintenance it part it says corydoras should not aquatic plants. What the heck!!! I thought all fish do better with plants! And dont cories lay there eggs on them (i think)?

Correct me if I am wrong, but that cant be right. O__O

Hmm. May be miscommunication?
In the wild, corydoras habitat does not really have any plant life.. It's more like this.


HOLY huge photo. But yea, they're fine with plants, just normally they only encounter a dead leaf litter on the bottom of the river.

Not mine. I wish I had access to such nice root structures though.

All of them.

They'll often be skittish and zooming up and down the glass for a few days after you get them, but once they settle in they'll almost always stay on the bottom. Every so often they'll swim up to the surface for some air.

Hmm, the 3 dwarf species often midswim, quite often once they settle. I think it's cute. Was looking at profiles yesterday and they also say pandas midswim often.
