Another one of the "pygmy cory's", I kept them with success a few years back and have been contemplating putting them in the 40. I think they have more charm if you will than the other two commonly kept species but that's just me ;-)

Most sources say; keep in a group of ten but the biggest school you can get works even better. can be kept in temps to 79F, they like their water a little softer side, pH can go to 7.2. Of course do not put them with large fish. Just a delightful little fish ;-)

They get a little bigger than the other 2, too 1.4"

And there is a 4th, not as popular species that looks a lot like them: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwj5kb7pwpPUAhXkzIMKHdh0BkAQFggtMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.seriouslyfish.com%2Fspecies%2 Fcorydoras-cochui%2F&usg=AFQjCNHa1z80B0CeST3y6R3T6MAb09StJQ

My favourite, but doesn't seem to be able to keep them.
