So went to the store after the infamous DG completely shredded my anacharis. I had decided I wanted to add one more friend to the tank. I got another Cory cat at the store. He's so small compared to the rest. He's real pale too. I'm hoping he's alright and it's just his color.

He's acting like a Cory cat now. But he still has his helipad. He'll go with the others but I have yet to see him lead the blind one. Eventually he'll learn that one. He's still pale today. It must not be anything serious. I was beginning to wonder last night when Lestat stayed with Lurch and Dracula went to look after Ash.

I'm concerned about the Juilii, and Red Venezuela, I've had them for 4 months and they haven't gotten any bigger. Still 1/2". If that. ? They are soooooo tiny. They eat Thera-A, Shrimp pellets, Frozen Brine, Spirulina, Mysis, as a treat bloodworms, sinking catfish pellets, .....
Why not growing ????

Is it possible your tank is overstocked? I know mine is slightly overstocked depending on who you ask, but ATM, I know it's a little overstocked. Once I can get my own place, I'm upgrading tanks, so it's not the end of the world. Sometimes, overstocking causes growth to stop. Or could it be your Corys are normally small? I'll look them up when I get back to my dorm.

Juilii get roughly 2.5 inches and red Venezuelan cories about 1.5......

I'm not sure.....how big of a tank is it? Like bettagal said could be overstocked too, which may stunt them. I have 4 dainties in a 10 with a betta and I've seen them grow a little in a couple weeks, but they're really close to their adult size anyway
