Corydoras pygmaeus

30. June 2014

The Dwarf corydoras (Corydoras pygmaeus) belongs without any doubts to the most attractive and interesting aquarium fish for small tanks. This dwarf becomes only 2-3 cm long and is a somewhat untypical member of its genus, for most species of Corydoras are bottom dwellers; C. pygmaeus prefers to swim in the open water column.

Interestingly this species has been described from the Rio Madeira basin in Brazil, but is imported mainly from Peru. The animals on the pictures have been imported from Colombia. They have the size “md” on our stocklist.

For our customers: the fish have code 242502 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
