Tank Raised Tail Spot Pygmy Cory (Corydoras hastatus) – Group of 5


One of the most active and attractively marked of the Pygmy Cory species, the Tail Spot or Black Diamond Pygmy Cory is found only in the Rio Guapore basin in Southern Brazil, where they occur in huge shoals of hundreds or even thousands of individuals. Unlike most Corydoras, they tend to swim in the middle of the water column instead of being strict bottom dwellers, and a large school makes for an impressive display in a planted or aquascaped aquarium. A hardy and peaceful fish, they should be kept in groups of at least 10 and will do well with similarly peaceful tankmates.
