    Sorry, read this wrong. I thought you were talking about Habrosus and I don't know how to delete this message.

    I think so, they have the long black stripe, not the ones with the black spot at the base of the tail. And not the more spotted habrosus.

    I don't think they have them often but when I google searched it, seems other people got lucky there a few times too. I purchased all the ones they had, and I have been checking for more every few days. Might have been a mishipment or special order. Who knows,

    Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica has them some times. I would call to check but it is worth the drive there just to see all the good stuff he has.

    In fact, I saw some habrosus there in mid-March. Looked good, but I wasn't ready to buy. They're probably gone, now.

    Everyone saying petco carries them. To be clear we are talking about "PYGMY" Corydoras not just Corydoras. Pygmy are much much much much much smaller than standard Corydoras. I will be heading to Petco tonight, I hope ya'll are right.

    Thank you for the pic! Well that's awesome. I didn't see any at my local petco, but it's only a matter of time.

    I was worried about them starving so I tried a lot of different frozen but my cherry barbs wouldn't eat BBS and I was afraid all the excess would get caught in the soil. So I just started putting extra dry foods to make sure some got to the bottom. They are eating pellets and flakes now. In the pic I posted you can see some flake food by his tail. He's actually searching for food in that pic.
