    Default Corydoras pygmaeus question

    0 Not allowed!
    With the current stocking I have in my 29 gallon. Will a group of about 5 or 6 C.pygmaeus do well? My rummys are about 1 to 1-1/2 and my apistos are about 1-1/4. The C.pygmaeus I seen at the store was about 2/3 to 1/2 inch long. There was only one and the guy at the fish store said that he thinks he should be getting in more today or tomorrow. I am not sure on the isze but lets assume they will be the same as the other. Will my other fish eat/try to eat the C.pygmaeus. Just wondering? They looked really small to me.

    I'm pretty sure it'll work out, considering the size of the tankmates are pretty small atm. I doubt any 1inch fish can eat something the size of its current body.

    Just a suggestion you should be looking at a number of 10-12 of the pgymy corydoras instead.

    40 Gallon (AC110, AC70, AC20 & a sponge filter):
    1x female betta
    1x Albino BN
    2x Albino corydoras
    3x Panda corydoras
    8x H.Rasboras
    3x Dwarf gourami (powder-blue var)
    1x Male A.Cacatoides
    2x unsexed juvie A.Aggassizi
    2x unsexed juvie A.Borelli
    3x Peacock gudgeon (1m, 2f)

    10 Gallon:
    6x North Australian Chameleon Shrimps (Cardina sp?)
    10 Gallon:
    20+ Cherry shrimps

    Your are fine with the pygmeus...the biggest mouth in the tank will be the cacatouides male but he will not eat them I have had them together as well... they might get a good battering though if the cacatouides breed for you as they are not as thick skinned as the larger cory's
