Emerald Cory or not?
Well, several months ago I got some Emerald Green Corycats from petsmart, we all know they sometimes fail at many things including proper labels...Ahem, anyways, two of them were big when I got them, by big I mean huge in comparison to the smaller youngins you usually see. Me and petshop lady both assumed they were adults...shouldna done that, right? Haha, well, they've been in my 55 gallon tank a little over a month now and grew at least an extra inch to add to their already three inches they had when I got them. I have a photo, sorry it's not too great, of one of my big boys(I was told the bigger ones were males and the smaller ones I have are females). This is actually the smaller of the big ones, by about half an inch, and a red platy next to him being all ziggy, sorry. lol
Oh yes, my question...is this really an Emerald, or were they mislabeled? They're three times the size of my other cories, but I can never get photos of them together, I have tried. >< And yes, he had a messed up dorsal fin, it never did grow back in the four+ months or so that I've had him, never got worse either, I just figured it was permanent damage. =(
