Visit to Petco...

I went to petco today to buy a few cories and more plants but walked out with nothing. They only had 2 types of cories in stock. One was too huge They were called emerald green cory cats or something similar. They were the biggest cories ive seen and each were $5... the other ones were only like $2 but they were so tiny like .75 inch - The card said their adult size was 3". I was afraid my betta would eat them so i didnt get those either. ANYWAYS, I saw some new bettas (males and females) and they too were TINY! like some (including fins) were only 2 inches max!!! Never seen bettas that small. I suppose they were still babies... Why are the fish being sold so young?

The Emerald Greens were probably Brochis Spledens. They look very similar to bronze Corys but they have 10-12 rays in their dorsal vs the 7 that bronzes have. They're not even really corys.

My Petco always has tiny bettas too. Tango was such a lil guy when I got him. He hardly had any spots.

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Maybe my betta was small when I bought him and he grew (although its only been about a month). Maybe thats why all the bettas at petco looked tiny.
