pygmy cories :D
okay so i was at my lfs the other day and i noticed that they had pygmy cories... and i like freaked out cause i never saw them before... i was really tempted to buy some but they were to small.. like i know they're pygmy and all but the were like less then a cm big :P i was wondering if i could put them in my tank without them getting eaten.. so its a fluval edge 2, so 12 gallons heavy plants + river rock and driftwood. right now there is

3 panda cories
1 small apistgramma norberti
6 glowlight rasbora
few cherry shrimp
and 3 snails

and can anyone just give me some good info on these guys?

I'm not good with calculating the number of fish to a tank size. The cories would do ok with the other cories. You do need to keep a group of them for them to feel comfortable. Check out the "Tropical Fish Profiles" tab at top of page for more info on them.
The other fish you have, I'm not familiar with, but someone else may be.

Yes, you'll find info on this species in the profile, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. You can do a search when you have a fish name, common or scientific, or part of it, and we now have many of the commonly-seen fish included. If the name is the same in posts it will shade, example Corydoras pygmaeus for the scientific of Pygmy Cory for the common, and you can click that for the profile. It will tell you what is needed for this fish.

This is a delicate cory, all three of the "dwarf" species are. Aside from that, the fish you mention should not bother them. A large group is mandatory though, this cory will pine away in small groups.
