I LOVE dwarf Corydoras!

I have always had a fondness for this family of petite catfish! When you have a large group, they very much school midwater and are prone, in my tanks, to setting up little “hotels” on anubias or almond leaves. They are always busy, darting around the tank and wiggling their way from one spot to the next. Both C. habrosus and C. pygmaeus are without a doubt fantastically adorable, and perfect for small tanks. They eat a meaty diet, easily taking to prepared or gel foods, but definitely enjoying a treat of frozen foods like cyclops, daphnia, or baby brine. I think you will agree, despite their diminutive size, they have an abundance of character!
