Well here is another school of freaks out of my Peru order - Brochis britiski - came in as an XXL splendens but the nose is too long and I have had a few look at them. These are giants at 4-4.5" in length and there are 20 in my tank with the red pikes.
I am told that they will get larger up to 5-7" as I had one arrive out of the 30 that was 6.25" but was a DOA! They are for sale on the new list.

You could be right as these guys love the NLS pellets and bloodworms! So far they don't act aggressive with the others for food as they are in with Punctatus and wotroi.
They were never intimidated by the 15" red pikes or zebrina so they are a calm fish but I know that they are not the current lovers like the other cories as they like to be under the power heads where it's calm! Tall fish with a blue copper coloration.
