Corbitis and sidthimunkis!

Yay.. I got my first 2 sids today from the same store I got the rostratas. The store owner only ordered 2 because he was afraid no one was going to pay $7 for each.

I also got 2 darios and 3 Corbitis sp. from PetsMart in Waterbury, CT. The darios didn't have a label, but they knew these were loaches. So they charged me $3.99 each. The Corbitis also didn't have a label. (but I knew what they were.. thanks to LOL) The retailer who helped me said they were algae eaters. They look nothing like algae eaters, but I didn't argue because algae eaters were $1.49 each.

Here come the questions (sorry).
- Since Corbitis loaches are from Korea, they have similar requirements as the weather loaches, right?
- Does anyone know what species these are?
- Are there tanks that have the same base dimension as a 4-foot-55-gallon but taller?
- From the sid picture, they are really sids, right? They are around 0.75" long and have some of the chain pattern already.

Thanx.. long post again.. sorry :P
