    heres me trying to measure some of my cories...(lame attempt i know) but you can see these kids are fat, and long and these arent the biggest...I have an emerald and another albino that is just chubba's as well as much longer...so when recommending cories for small tanks, remember their potential (either that or mine are just spoiled!!)

    I have also noticed a significant differenct in sizes for my panda cories which are tiny in comparison to the bronze cories I have. I totally agree that some cories are much smaller than others and we should remember this when making suggestions for smaller tanks.

    Turning computer upside down to look at measurements LOL
    I think my female cory is about as long, except maybe bulkier.

    Great pics!

    This little fellow is an elder and quiet large too. Common Cory (as far as I know) Much bigger than my Cory Jullis but they are still young.
