I've heard so many good things about cories that if I was getting a tank, I'd seriously consider cories.

I like to walk to my Petsmart every once in awhile. I'll have to see if they have any. I'm not that familiar with all the different fish so I go there to see the different kinds so I know what people are talking about. lol

Haha yeah. I have a few actual fish stores here. I like to look at them. They have some really cool ones! The saltwater are always very colorful. My petsmart only had the albinos,and they get big. Boo. Lol. The one lfs had two kinds of corys but both of them get big too. My search continues!

So you can't find the little ones? What about ordering online? That might be a bit expensive, though.:(

Thanks, I think I may have found them at an LFS down in San Diego. It's the Corydoras Habrosus that I want and I'm told they have a bunch of them. If they do it'll be worth the drive. Then again, it's dangerous for me to walk into any decent LFS...I walk in with a budget and leave with an empty wallet

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Ugh! I went to a bunch of pet stores and the two lfs here. I cant find any of the small corys. I went to this one where this guy is telling me oh you can have plecos and all these other kinds of catfish. Hes like oh they stay small. I looked it up with my phone ( i have internet on it) they all get big lol. I figured at least one store would try that. Oh then this other one, poor betta!! it was in a tank with tetras and some other kinds of fish. he had no fins left! Those fish were tearing him apart. I said something to the guy and hes like oh thats normal. Uh what? Then i said again thats not normal,so he scooped him out and plopped him into another tank. I stayed and watched for a lil bit and those fish seemed to leave him alone. But he did say oh hes weak and gave me this look that said we feed weak dying fish to other fish. He didnt say it but implied it. thats horrible! I so wanted to save that fish,bring him home,give him love he deserves...but i didnt...i feel guilty for leaving him in that horrible place....ugh...Im afraid ill go back and he will be dead,still in there,or gone completely. Like eaten. So i dunno. I feel so sad for him.

That's such a bummer of a story. I'm sorry you had to have such an experience.
