Which cories are those?

Bought those two little fellas yesterday and... forgot the name Can you ID them for me, please?

Also-- they seem to be a bit relentless, is that normal? I thought they be sitting on the bottom more, and they seem to be all over the place

They are both bottom and middle dwellers. Corydoras pygmaeus are very active.

I've been told they are almost adult size and don't grow much larger than that
On a serious note though-- I'm surprised because they're quite big on my computer - just click on the image and it goes into gallery mode...

Looks like those to me, and the name sounds familiar as well Thank you!

Apparently I need to buy more next week, as I read they like company. Can I get like 6 in my 25 litres tank with Betta in it?

Unfortunately, I think that is too small for pygmy cories. They would do better in a 10g tank. The betta might also be mean. Some bettas will be nice to other fish. Some will not.

They are Pygmy cories, look at the mouth. Otos have a sucker mouth. Pygmies aren't like other cories, they are fidgety and hover a lot.
