Error, what store did you get the fish from? I wouldn't mind driving over to Detroit to take a look...
I got the C. sterbai from 101 Aquariums on Van Born between Telegraph and Beech in Taylor. They were in with a bunch of other cories priced as Mixed Cories: $3.99 or 2 for $6. Since the store deals predominantly in cichlids, I suspect they either didn't know or didn't care that these guys usually get $10-$15 each. I think I took all they had, but I'll definitely let you know if they get more in.
I have lost one that didn't look good to begin with, and another has a pretty torn up pectoral fin. But the rest look fairly healthy and blended right in with the small school I've been building.
I got the Microrasbora kubotai from The Aquarium Shop on Main St. in Royal Oak just north of 11 Mile. I was in there again last week and told the guy who does the ordering that I'd be interested in more. He said he'd see what he can do and took my number. Haven't heard anything yet. But I'll be certain to take a way closer look next time I see "Green Rasboras" on a tank
