Does anyone have experience with these 2 species? Are they very different in size, personality and requirements (lighting, flow, food,etc). I hear pygmies are very shy.

Cheers.

Thanks. Sounds like hasbrosus for me then. Will a mixture of both school together?

Everyone says that pygmaesus is really shy even with large numbers. I did get 3 hasbrosus to start and they are very outgoing so far. I really enjoy them and hope to get more.

Does anyone keep all 3 species together? I wonder if hasbrosus would make pygmaesus more outgoing or do they school separately?

Yes they are very entertaining.

I was wondering how I can make sure my hasbrosus cories are getting enough to eat. They share a tank with white clouds and they seem to eat most of the food even the sinking stuff. Anyone have tips to share? I hear dropping pellets in the dark works, but I can't be sure they are eating it instead of it just sitting there going bad at night.
