No they can reach 4". Some of my friends have them and they are all in 40-75g tanks and are 3-4".

You don't have to post it twice. We can see.
Pandas, skunks, and bandits all look similar but skunks and bandits have more black while pandas have more white.

Really? I've never seen a Cory Cat in the Corydoras genus get over 3 inches. I've seen Cory Cats in the Brochis genus get over 3 inches. Do you have a picture?

I can't get over to my LFS for a few days. I work through there summer hours tomorrow, and I am heading to Pennsylvania for a couple days after that. I'd love to see some pictures of your Cory's though!

There are a few that can get over 3". Green Cory can too.
Unfortunately I didn't take a pic of the cats.

You may have more selection:

OP- if you follow the link I posted, you will see a page of thumbnail pictures. Look for cories that you like the look of, and click on the thumbnail- it will take you to the profile for that Cory (incl size)

I did. There's just so many and I don't know which ones are common. Besides they were all listed by their scientific name.

That's because green cory cats aren't in the corydoras genus. They are in the brochis genus like he said before.

Quick Find

I like the one I used in my avitar , one of the pair I have.

Now after looking at this link to all the different species I am having a hard time figureing out exactly what it is.

I have julii and peppered corys. Both are really active and so entertaining to watch! It depends which you like the look of the best. I slightly favour my peppered cories, they are the best!!

Mine favorites are Aspidoras albater. They are listed in the cory family and look similar but with slimmer bodies. Absolutely adorably cut. Aspidoras albator / Aspidoras albater / Aspidoras / Home - Corydoras

Can you get a close up pic of the cat? The avatar pic is not very clear.
