I purchased today 3 pygmy corys and after I put them in 2 started swimming together and the other left them I think he is a moron because he swam up to my cichlid and then was chased away to do it again and again but when will he come to his senses and school with others I have a twenty tall and its full on gallons so I'm hoping its not a number of corys thing.

I have 12 pygmy cories and they are true schoolers....mine will always swim together. I would definitely increase your school.

I have six Pygmys. One of them sometimes chooses to school with the 8 Neon Tetras. My Pygmys are pretty independent when they are relaxed. I just now moved them into a 29 gal tank, so currently they are staying real tight. I may get a couple more now that they have more room.

Once again I'm probably over the limit on gallons is it better to school with odds or evens?
