I would quite like habrosus cory over the pygmy but all I can find is pygmy in my area.
If you go with one of the "dwarf" species of cory, 12 is a good number; the more the better for these little guys. However, I must say that I do not have that much luck with these, and I've no idea why. I have many wild-caught species, they spawn regularly. But the C. pygmaeus and C. habrosus do not do at all well. The only thing it might be now is temperature, they do not like it warm.
If you go with one of the other "normal" corys, 5-6 is a good number for one species, or if you decide on two species, 3-4 of each.
