Corydoras pygmaeus. They have the trademark black stripe. The $7 price tag is doing well to keep them in the tank. They still have a decent amount in the tank.

You should see MrBrongher's, they're not only neon blue, they have a deep velvet red anal fin. I'll take a look XD

Are these fish he bought for himself, or is he a vendor?

Sounds really cool!

Not a vendor, but he is a mad scientist. Haha. Or that's what his setup looks like. Tanks ALL over the place, you would be jealous.

Chibi, since you're north of us, checkout pet goods in Yonkers. I think Edwin mentioned they were like $3 each. If they go OOS, me and szenic are looking at ordering through franks aquarium for $2 each. Pickup at Brooklyn though... I'm also looking as frqnks's mini rasboras and looking to get a few more h. Formosa's because I find them to shoal together very well. I actually have one of each which spend all day together. Its really a sweet site to see.

Albert do you sleep at all? I feel like you live here LOL.

I am an architecture student so that is my excuse...I'm procrastinating (shhh)

I want to get in on the chili rasbora action if there is any going on!
