The pygmy corydoras is a silver-colored fish, with an unbroken black line that runs horizontally along the center of the sides of the fish from the tip of its snout to its caudal peduncle. It has a second thin black line along the lower part of the side of the body, from behind the ventral fins and continuing into the tail. The top part of the body has a light black or dark gray shading that starts on the top of its snout and ends at the tail.Newly hatched fry have vertical stripes along the sides of their bodies that fade by the end of their first month, when the horizontal stripes of the adult fish begin to appear.
The maximum length of the species is about 3.2 centimeters (1.3 in), but typical adult sizes are 1.9 centimeters (0.75 in) for males and 2.5 centimeters (1.0 in) for females. In addition to their larger length, females are also rounder and broader than males, especially when they have eggs. Young fry grow rapidly after hatching, reaching 13 millimeters (0.51 in) in six to eight weeks.
Came fast and healthy and they sure are entertaining as hell. Thanks Abquatics 👍
Yeah, never again haha sorry
I have six of these little guys. They came in 2 bags with 3 corys in each. Each bag had a little sponge in it to keep up the biological turnover for ammonia. Smart. The bags were pretty cold when I opened the package (not the shop's fault) and the fish were pretty lethargic, but after placing the bags in the tanks to let them warm up as well as dripping my tank water in the bags helped them revitalise and survive the transfer from bag to tank.
All in all it was a good experience and I am a happy customer. Will be buying from this shop again!
arrived healthy and happy are doing awesome highly recommended
Fish all arrived healthy and have settled well into my tank, they are super cute and active, it’s fun to see them sleeping on the leaves or rocks within the tank. I will buy again!
