    So I have some peppered corries in my 30g, and it seems like their dorsal fins are very long...

    Doesn't his fin seem a bit long?

    Heres a better pic of all 4 cory cats-

    The one that stands out the most, his dorsal fin extends all the way to the tip of his tail.

    Is this a sign of aging, a breed trait, an abnormal growth, gender identification, what is it!?

    Thanks!

    Hello :) they are long finned peppered corydoras absolutely nothing to worry about its just a different sub species :) I previously had some long finned bronze corys the long finned ones are very pretty

    Here's my HiFin Cory. Mine has both dorsal and pectoral fins elongated.

    That explains a lot! Thanks for the info!
    So do their fins grow longer as they age? Some of mine are just barely starting to get longer fins.

    I think it depends on parentage but as they grow their fins should get longer :)

    I see, that sounds reasonable because some of mine are just barely getting their 'High-Fins'

    You might be interested to know, my LFS actually sells high-finned peppered cories at a higher price than regular peppereds.

    Looks like you got yourself a deal :p

    My LFS sells they're cory's as just babies, for about $4.99
    I bought 2 new baby peppers and a baby albino from them yesterday, so hopefully the peppers grow high-fins like the rest have. The albino probably wont.
    There was albino peppered cories that probably would have grown high-fins, but they were $11.99
    The picture in my avatar is of my new albino baby.
