Especialy Curby,
                        I have 3 LO 59 and two peppermint, the LO59's have really out grown the pep's and whilst a trio of cory cats where spawning two of the 59's went mad and did all sorts of things in the tank, they look a pair and are about 3" long, are they big enough to breed. My standard brown Brisis have spawned twice and i have a mixture of albino and plain, and they are about the same size as the 59;s, The peppermint are 1 /1/2" and 2" and the small one has prominant bristles.
Regards Terry.
