I’m trying to get my Pygmy cories to breed, and I’m wondering if I should try to get the snails out of the tank they are in.

Typically not. Never gotten pygmy to breed so good luck with it!

Yeah, so far I haven’t had any luck with them. I’ve got 7 of them in a 20 high. My water is pretty hard. I’ve been feeding them frozen bloodworms and rapashy. I’ve tried doing small water changes with 2 gallons of distilled water a couple of times to get the water a little softer.

I think I might need to get a few more and try some live foods. Everything I’ve read suggests having a dozen or so in a breeding group.

Have you talked to Xingu in Wyzata? A lot of Cory species have bred for Rich.
