Uncommon Cories in Northern Virginia

Wanted to let anyone in the Northern Virginia or greater DC area know that I was just down at Centrrville Aquarium, and they got in some interesting cories. Looks like they have C. actuarus, C. metae or davidsandi, and what I think was C. aggassizii. I have not seen these available in the area before, so if anyone were looking for a local source, there's one.

Sorry for the possible appearance of the plug, but I figured the relative scarcity of these breeds in my experience warranted letting folks know.

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.

I'm going to try to get together all my sterbas fry and and trade them in for a discount. Can't decide which yet, but leaning toward the Metae/Davidsandsi.

Correction to my earlier post: C. arcuatus: Skunk cory. Not C. actuartus, Bookeeper Cory (a wholly imaginary fish).

He's got some (At least one) of the Orange line ones like the greenbottle cories in the big display tank in the second storefront.

Netted up my baby Sterbas tonight and have them floating in a guppy breeder in their tank. I'm going to bring them down there tomorrow after work and see what he has left.

Got a half dozen Metaes. Definite ID, that, not davidsadsi.
