Have you seen
C hastatus , habrosus and pygmaeus ?
All 1" or less. Yes, dwarf was left off the recommendation.
My "big" female habrosus might be a tiny bit over an inch.

He didn't specify pygmy cories. A lot of cories get over 2 inches.

Yes, you're right and he should have written dwarf.

Can you imagine the glee of a big Brochis in a tank of candy cane colored Shrimp LOL

Well my C habrosus aren't shy. I often see Shrimp riding Corys as they all converge on food.
