I would gladly take him, if there was a safe way to get him to Arizona.. I have a huge soft spot for cories, and if your lone cory is indeed c. trilineatus and not c. Julii.. (there are photos you can compare carefully or post here and someone will help) I already have 3 c. trilneatus who would probably accept your friend happily, and lessen his stress too.. I just have no experience with shipping.
Oddly enough, the problem I am having is finding another c. elegans to go with the 2 I already have. Byron, our hero here, suggested that I need at least 1 more for them to be happy, and I cannot locate any more here. Seems I got the last two that were here in Tucson (astonishing I know!). I don't have room for another group of 5, and that seems to be the only way I can get them ordered online..
