I have pygmies and dainties, and while they're both pretty active the pygmies are almost.....regal. The dainties are dorks and the pygmies zoom, but in a more stylized hummingbird kind of way

Spent my Saturday here changing to a sand substrate just to keep my little Cory's happy :-\ I think that could be considered a little eccentric ....

Sand is great! My cories were on gravel for awhile. It didn't affect their barbels but now that they have sand the barbels have really grown. I'm not sure if this is actually possible maybe they grow with the fish but they've def gotten longer/thicker.

Hey guys well today I got three Cory's unsure of the type but I do know that one is a albino Cory. This albino seems to only want to be by himself. And is often picked on and chased by the male molly. Is there any thing I can do

Hmm, what color is your substrate? If it's dark, then your albino may be sticking out like a sore thumb. OR it could be sick and that's why your Molly could be picking on it. I have 3 sterbiai cores and one kind of stays by itself but my male Bolivian ram hangs with it.
