Corydoras growth

I have seen something online about how female corydoras grow way faster then their male counterparts but. I bought 4 corydoras from a pet store 3 of them have grown quite big with two of them really big, one slightly behind and one that is pretty much the same size as he was when we got this. I have watched them eat, he gets food and he seems healthy. Is he just stunted for some reason?

Your fish will never all be the same size. What kind of corydoras are they? Mine range from 1inch to 3inches in size.

They are emerald corydoras, I understand that they will never be the same but it is a crazy difference. I will try and get pictures to show you.

Emerald Corydoras ? = C.splendens?
Or Green Corydoras ? = C.aeneus ?

The firsr ones are quite difficult to breed.
