so, what do I do about this? The guy at the aquarium store said you can keep cories with aggressive fish because they have barbs to protect themselves and are bottom feeders... so I kept all my cories in my new 55 gallon when I upgraded from 37 ... and added 3 large fish... will this work itself out or do I need to bring this peacock back to the store to get the corie from his mouth. Poor guy.

How do I get this cory out of his mouth - I’m afraid he can’t swallow it and the barbs are stuck

He won't be able to swallow or get it out cause of the spines are out.

"Beautiful" story of a bold (read stupid) student here trying to swallow a Corydoras aeneus. Had to go to the hospital.
The Cory is in a museum !!

Let the guy in the LFS get it out. More proof of a bad advise can't be given

I would take him back to the person that told you it was OK to put them together. That person needs to see what happens when you don't know what you are doing and just want to sell fish.

He needs to see that his bad advice has consequences.
