Favorite Corydoras Species??

Tis that time again, time for everyone to state their opinions! Question at hand:

What is your favorite Corydoras Species?

This can one you kept, one you wanna keep, or anywhere in between. Let your voice be heard!

Perhaps I should start!

I love me my Dwarf Corydoras Species. I currently keep 9 Corydoras Pygmaeus and 4 Corydoras Habrosus. All the Corydoras quirks in a smaller body!

I have plans for a rimless planted tank with the last Dwarf species that I haven't kept, Hastatus.

My favorites are C. habrosus and C. aenus albino variety. I like how zippy the tiny ones are, they are endlessly entertaining. For bigger species, I really think the albinos are attractive.

Thanks for moving! I thought I was right haha

If I had to choose a larger species it would be Juhlii. So pretty.

I have two that are a tie: Corydoras sterbai (which I have) and Corydoras schwartzi (that I am dying to have)! But in a dark substrate tank I have to agree that Corydoras aeneus albino takes the show!

Oh wow, just looked at Schwartzi. Beautiful fish. Another choice for large Corydoras for me would be Agasizzii. They are kinda similar to Schwartzi.

+1 for the Pygmies.
I put 4 in a chi, and we had to to take everything else out, and they started breeding like crazy.
So now I have 10+.

I. Am. So. Jealous.

Off topic, but do yours swim more in the middle strata of the tank? I've read they do but mine haven't so far...

Yeah, but when you walk by they all go to the bottom at the speed of light to hide.

What else is in your tank?
Mine are completely alone with some holy rock.

I've got Agasizzii and Pandas too! Problem is with a tank this big and a virtual forest of plants I only get to see them off and on. Maybe if I put 100 in there I might actually get to enjoy them more!
