The biggest cory I've ever seen

So I found this new lfs and while I was looking at thier fish I come across this tank that had a sick oscar, about 3 inches and it looked like it's swim bladder or something was wrong cause it just kept swimming in circles. With this sick oscar was a cory. This fish was at least 4 1/2 inches long and maybe 2 inches tall. It was huge!! It looked just like a false julii but I didn't think they could get that big. The owners said he's had it for years and won't sell him since it's his buddy now. Anyone ever heard of them getting that big? I tried to get a pic but my cell phone wouldn't get a good pic that you could really get the idea of this fish.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!

The Brochis splendens in my breeder tanks are every bit of 3-31/2" long. Lupin is correct in that many novices confuse them as a giant cory.

One of my LFs had full grown Brochis Splendens and they were huge.
I'm just curious though...Holly said the one she saw looked like a false julii. Too bad she couldn't get a pic!

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)

I do want to stop in tomorrow night since he got a new shipment in Wed so I'll try to get a pic even if you can't tell the size, you'll still be able to make out the fish. He had the exact same markings of my false julii. I'll post a pic this weekend.
