C pygmaeus do swim mid tank and check plants for critters, but they do not have the sucker mouth that true algae eating fish have.

Sorry, but I keep seeing this info repeated that they are herbivores.

Regardless of diet, Your pygmaeus are super cute ! I hope to get some later.

Well that's weird. I don't have brine shrimp in my tank so the only thing they could be eating would be the flake food that I feed my other fish. I do not feed them algae wafers as they don't go near the bottom. They continually graze on my driftwood & plants so I just assumed they were after the algae. Whatever they eat they're cute & healthy & I've had this group of 5 for almost a year now so they must be doing ok.

I have a 55gal & I keep pairs of corys & they seem to be fine. I have multiple pairs of different kinds that school together & seem happy. The only ones I have in larger groups are the 2 types of pigmies which are both in groups of 5. Here's a bad pic of some of my corys resting. Sterbai, pepper, caudimaculatus, & 1 of my juliis is off to the side & you can't see him/her
