    Mine were never that small, so wouldn't of thought that they'd get stuck in and around HC. Although the fry might do if you get them small.

    I fed them small algae wafers and they lapped it up, never seen lower level fish go for food that quick.

    Corydoras pygmaes mix well with all types of fish within reason, They just go about there stuff, They rarely each small plants like your HC unless they get real hungry. You can feed them a wide diet too, live dried flake vegies. Its a very easy fish to keep and not too fussy on water parameters either. Just caution with the males, as usual they can get grumpy with the own type, If you wanna sex them just look from above,the females will be larger and more rounded in body shape.
    I hope this helped a little.
