cory sizes

got 2 little albino cories (both were same size) from the lfs over 8 months ago.

now one cory is much bigger than the other one.

is one getting more food (feeding sinking wafers to make sure they get enough to eat since my other fish eat everything on top)

OR

do females grow larger than males?

thanks

Bronze cories are really easy to breed supposedly.
