I had the grumpy "Big Blue" Powder Blue DG for almost a year before moving him to a friends house. I forgot to mention that he was housed in a 20g with a flame / fire red and he literally ate him completely. Hes been at a friends house for close to six months now and doing great.
As for purchasing online, I believe its the way to go. Ive received better quality every time versus buying at petco. Every site ive ordered from ships over night and you usually get them by noon the next day. Ive probably bought 60+ fish and shrimp online and ive only had 1 peppered cory and 1 blue eye gertrudes rainbow DOA (5$ maybe?). Shipping is usually $30 minimum but its well worth it as they're packed in coolers and double / tripled bagged.
Female DG's are very drab in color and usually smaller. You CAN see the difference on the females with the color varieties so you'll know if its a female neon, powder, red...etc. I attached a pic of one of my males with two females. Dont mind the algae, my otos are on the way!
