The Pygmy Cory or Pygmy Catfish, is a small freshwater fish from the Corydoradinae sub-family. ‘Cory’ is short for Corydoras, which is their genus. The Pygmy Cory is mainly found in the Madeira River basin in Brazil, but populations are found across the South American continent. They thrive in tropical aquariums and are a great choice for beginners, though they are popular with experienced aquarists too. Since they are small, they do not live as long as larger aquarium species. Usually they live to be 3 years old, but this could lengthen or shorten based on how well they are cared for.
