Hi and thanks for response...I only bought the peppered cory's today due to appearance of the albino's barbels....I definitely will go back for albino's soon though, maybe wait until the lfs next delivery! I know I really should have a qt but I don't...just have to pick the healthiest looking stock, take the risk and hope for the best?!? :-/ thanks again for advice and input.

New Pygmy Cories!

I am so jazzed, yesterday I got my order from Aquabid of Pygmy Cories. They were very lively, even in the bag. Once acclimated and in the tank they were all over the place, hanging out with my gargantuan BNP and swimming around with my half grown Bronze Aneus, my first cory baby.

They are absolutely adorable.

Cute Pygmy Cory video

I am so sorry that I can't seem to remember to turn my iPhone sidewise to take videos, but I hope you will forgive me…because it is about the Cories!

I kinda feel bad for my little guy. The three trouble makers are schooling, but Ash won't join in. He never colored up and I can see through him almost. All he does is sift everywhere and everything. I'm beginning to wonder if I got the runt or something like that. Poor little dude. Might give everyone some frozen bloodworms tomorrow morning.

So I decided to get a couple Pygmy cories, hoping they would at least make friends with my dainties even if they don't end up schooling......I notice after acclimation and introduction that they do this thing where they're swimming in place and they look like they're vibrating, which I thought was adorable and silly.
Fast forward to late the next day, just off work and relaxing by watching my fish, and I see one of my dainties do the same vibrating in place thing. Which is something that they have never done in the month or so I've had them.
I can't help but think the pygmies taught them a new trick

Yeah that's not good. That vibration usually means irritation to skin. I have seen my Killie fish do it then died. -- not to scare you tho. Water change time

They're not actually vibrating, their side fins are moving at high speed to keep them in place, and it's making them move back and forth in tiny increments and it just looks like they're vibrating.

They look like little hummingbirds.

Sweet!
