Pygmy Cory Care Guide


Pygmy Cory
(Corydoras pygmaeus)

Common names:
Pygmy cory.
Size: 3.2cm
pH: 6.4 – 7.4
Tempº: 22ºC - 26ºC (71 F - 78 F)
Tank region: Bottom layer
Origin: Brazil
Gender: Females are more fuller bodies, especially when viewed from the top.
Notes: One of the smallest fish readily available for the aquarium trade, the Pygmy cory is the perfect choice for a nano tank. They should be cared for as any other cory: a group of at least 3, regular water changes and bottom feeder pellets. This catfish has been known to school in the middle of the water, but more often it swims at the bottom of the tank. They should be kept over a substrate of fine sand or gravel as anything else will wear down their barbells.
