Does anyone know where to find pygmy cories in utah? My dream aquarium is a 10 gal full of a bunch of pygmies and otos. That would be amazing... I love the personality and cuteness. I had to settle for baloon mollies though, because I can't find pygmy corydoras anywhere. I really want some- so anyone know where to find them?

I have no idea where to find them in Utah but I know several places online that have them.

wetspottropicalfish.com currently has them for $2 each or 10 for $18. Plus shipping..

Only have fish shipped overnight; you will likely no be happy with the fish conditions after 2 day.

how much is shipping? Cause I don't want to have to pay like 20$ for a$2 fish...
Is there more risk for shipping in winter(freeze) or summer (overheat)

that you will have to ask the company. They have a $24 minimum order. I would imagine that it would cost at least $50 for shipping. SO you are looking at around $80.

I bought my Pygmies from a place in PA when I ordered my Sterbai. There are very sweet fish.

OH!so the mininmum is BEFORE shipping?I didn't realize that. wow... 80$ is enough to buy a whole new bigger aquarium and supplies if I wanted. I'm not sure if the pygmies would be worth it. Maybe I could see if my pet stores could make a special order... O'm sure they would sell great if they bought some!

Special ordering is the best way as the store can absorb the shipping cost with there normal orders. I would only order online if it is something you are dying to have. I only buy Cories as my LFS stink and refuse to order fish for me even with me offering to prepay.
