Cory Cat Rescue ?

I'm debating picking up this local Cory Cat (looks about pygmy size, although I could not tell which of the three it was so it may just be younger).

He is in a LFS by himself; has been for a...

There are more than enough hiding spaces, and he is pretty peaceful from what I can see. Yeah they are for sure hiding; he may have ate some, but I honestly don't think so.

Yeah, I also use those Edge pre-filters on my AC20; was a bit too big for a Finnex PX360, but fits nice and snug and I love how it performs on the AC20, as well as the filter itself.

RCS Shipping Lifetime?

How long will RCS last in the mail?

Provided they had a 40 hour heat pack that ran out 30 hours ago, temps are in the 10's-20s at night; breather bags, styro box, etc.

Thinking about doing the same thing with a 5 and going with the Betta. The Betta might always tolerate a few shrimp; or possibly I'll have to buy a 10 gallon and set up a little community.
