Hey all,
All is well with my corydoras paleatus, but I have a question. Do the barbels stop growing? The barbels look better from when I first got them, and I'm curious about how big they will get.

They do eventually stop growing, most are around the same size,m normal to the species but some can have longer than normal.

Ive got a one eyed cory who has some really impressive whiskers on him lol they hang like a funny mustache

Me too. I love seeing the sand fall through their gill plates(?). Its super cool when they actually find a little piece of food and sit their munching on it lol
