That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Thanks for the info.

If not, do 10-11 of each and you'll have no issues. The pygmaeus will explore the entire tank - but primarily stay mid-tank when there's a sizable group of them. The habrosus will remain on the bottom, for the most part, so those numbers won't remotely seem crowded.
None at all. The only current occupants are a few Amano shrimp. The corydoras would be the only other livestock. I don't want to overstock the tank, but I also know with cories the more the merrier. I'd prefer to keep the maximum amount that's appropriate for this tank.

Would a school of 10-11 of each be the max?

sdbrewer Would 8 of each be totally pushing it?

notropis Absolutely!

I have 11 in my shrimp tank which is a 10 gall heavy planted tank. They are so tiny!

Fdsh5 I would have no issues with 5 or 6 of each. Then again all my tanks are overstocked. With regular water changes I don't see an issue. That would be a fun tank to watch.

Corydoras habrosus & Corydoras pygmaeus in 10 gallon

I'm entertaining the idea of keeping small schools of both in a heavily planted, well established 10 gallon tank. Is this possible, and if so, how many of each could be kept?
