After I hit SUBMIT on my post, I saw this thread. I have the EXACT same issue, with the exact fish. One of my albino cories still looks like a baby and the 2 others are getting larger and larger!

Must be a male/female thing. I saw once how to tell the difference. It had something to do with the shape of their bodys and fins. If I find it I'll post it.

Something that hasn't come up but which might be worth noting, and I accuse no one of anything, is that one must make certain that the cories get enough food. Relying on them to scavenge will not do it. I make certain that at least twice a week I put some sinking pellets in so that the cories will have a shot to eat their fill. Flake by itself, even brine by itself will not pass muster.

If you feed frozen to your tank a couple times a week, the cories will get some. If you feed flake, they'll get some. If you then add some shrimp pellets, tetramin rich mix tablets, Hikari catfish tablets, or a sinking live food like minced earthworm or live blackworms (bypass the cone feeder and just drop a clump on the bottom), then you'll give your cories some room to grow.

Another strategy you can use, when you feed frozen, feed something slow sinking and something fast sinking at the same time - brine or dapnia and bloodworms or mysis or glassworms. That way your top and midwater fish will mostly get the slow sinking food and your cories will mostly get the fast sinking food, but everyone will get a bit of everything.

Each day since I have an assortment of bottom feeders, I include some of the following: sinking wafers, algae wagers, shrimp pellets, sinking granules.

I see my little man eat daily, so that isn't the problem here!

I have eggs as of yesterday. I removed approximately 19 eggs and some are starting to turn from white to tan, so I'm really excited. Tonight, which is more than 24 hours after being removed from my aquarium, I can see movement (!) inside the tan colored eggs. It's really COOL! There is no wiggling or anything, but if I look close and long enough with the light on, I can see more of a rolling from side to side within the egg. It's really, really cool.

I'm going out tomorrow and going to buy a breeding thingy (you know what I mean) and some fry food beacuse I think I will have a few more mouths to feed!

Have I mentioend this is so cool? :D

You're not going to feed them yet until the yolk sac is completely gone.;)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
