Its in the new 90 gallon at the moment. It hasn't grown much because much of the time it was in with the other 2 Oscars that bullied it. And the lutino hid much of the time. It has been a trooper, it has been beet up a little bit a couple of times. But it is healthy at the moment.
.
Here is the most recent vid of the Lutino O. From yesterday. (in case you didn't see it on the other thread.

Yes Size is very important. All 3 corys that I got were at max size when I got them. I think those tiny ones would grow to slow. Just get big ones. . Petco is the only fish store (well, besides walmart :S ) in my town. and they had good stretch where thye where getting large Emerald Corys.

I had never heard of them before, but did a google search and:
www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=16+1911+1919&aid=2446 .
The interesting thing is, those look alot like the ones I have, and about the same size. Hmmmmmm. :huh:

Edit:
I actually found this link... from the same site on "emerald cory cat" looks like the scientific name has brochis in it also. and the site says they get the same size:
