The Pygmy Cory (Corydoras pygmaeus), or Pygmy Catfish, is a small freshwater fishfrom the Corydoradinae sub-family.
‘Cory’ is short for Corydoras, which is their genus.
The Pygmy Cory is mainly found in the Madeira River basin in Brazil, but populations are found across the South American continent.
Originally there was only thought to be one miniature Corydoras species (Corydoras hastatus). In the early 1900s it was realized that many species had been misidentified, and so the Pygmy Cory species was described.
This fish enjoys the company of its own kind.
They often shoal (which is rare for a bottom-dweller) and may even swim in groups in the mid-levels of the tank (which is even rarer).
Keep them in groups of at least four or more, but eight is recommended. The larger the group, the more impressive the sight.
