Looking for Pygmy Corys


I live in Central IL.
I am looking for 10 Pygmy Corys, I have a 55 gallon tank with Marsilea minuta as the foreground plants.

I am in the Nitrate phase of the fishless cycle. This is my 2nd week in this phase.

After that, I'll be ready.

I've been looking for similar fish, specifically habrosus. I've found habrosus misidentified as hastatus at a few places. Here's what I've seen recently:

Aquarium adventure had about 6 Habrosus before christmas.
Old Town Aquarium has at least 2 pygmaeus as of last week.
I'm checking out Fish planet this weekend.

I'll let you know if I come across more. If anyone sees habrosus around I'd love to know!

I got my pygmys from the last GCCA swap meet. A vendor was selling them in bags of 10.

Found some pygmy cories if you're still looking. Old Town in Chicago has at least 2, and Fish Planet has at least 3. Hope that helps.

We were hunting for habrosus with no luck, but did find some nice julii (?) at fish planet. Our solo habrosus has been schooling with, climbing on, and generally staying super close to the julii. It's kinda cute!

Sailfin pet shop in Champaign usually has them. Their shipments come in Thursdays I think. Call ahead to check on stock. Owner John is super knowledgeable and so is manager (?) Rachel. Their tanks and fishes are clean and healthy. Small shop but great things inside.

Fish planet gets them in with some regularity, for reasonable prices.

TBH your best bet is to just order from Rachel/MsJzinked though.

Check some of the sellers at the GCCA swap. There are a couple there who move quite a few cores. Look at the vendor list and contact them today.
