View Full Version : My corys don't grow

Hi, I have three albino corys. They are less than an inch long and I've had them for about four months in a 55 gallon planted aquarium with 6 shubunkin goldfish and 1 pleco, all purchased at the same time. The other fish have grown considerably, tripled in size. But the 3 corys are still the same size as when I bought them. I don't feed them anything special ... just 2 or 3 times a week I will put in a few algae wafers, but the goldfish may eat those. The corys are very active and they look healthy, just wondering why they don't grow.

Hi Phishy! I recently did a thread about mine not growing.. my LFS said that because the albino are kind of hybrids of the peppered corys, you can sometimes get a 'stunted' fish that just doesn't grow. They seem to stay healthy enought tho.. I bought a bronze, a peppered and an albino at the same time and my albino is just the same but the other two have doubled their size..
