Here is another one of my favorites that I actually kept before adolfoi, they have been around since only. They are so similarly marked that it takes experts too tell them apart. As a general rule C. duplicareus tends to be a little stockier than C. adolfoi and the black band is usually a little broader. I just order and hope TWS has kept them them separated and I'm getting what I wanted, either one is very desirable ;-) Even in the wild their ranges are so close that they are found in each other territories, I don't know if their are any records of the them hybridizing but being so closely related I would imagine they would. Like I said they are both a must have and as more tank raised become availble, I hope the price comes down so we can afford to keep bigge schools, win, win for us them ;-)

These guys look neat with orange lasers

A couple of more that get confused with duplicareus and adolfoi but much easier to tell apart

C. burgessi

One more that reminded me of them and a newer species to boot, CORYDORAS C121

I've seen three videos of them and they all have that strange mark by their gill..............

Some god info on them: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi1x6jN8e3TAhUL2oMKHXshDE0QFggmMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.scotcat.com%2Farticles%2Farti cle89.htm&usg=AFQjCNH5jUxGn1KBHe21rbu0drFyLnxO6w

Well that intro was full of typo's let me clean them up a bit (blush)

Here is another one of my favorites that I actually kept before adolfoi, they have been around since only 1995 . They are so similarly marked that it takes experts too tell them apart. As a general rule C. duplicareus tends to be a little stockier than C. adolfoi and the black band is usually a little broader. I just order and hope TWS has kept them separated and I'm getting what I wanted, either one is very desirable ;-) Even in the wild their ranges are so close that they are found in each other territories, I don't know if their are any records of the them hybridizing but being so closely related I would imagine they would. Like I said they are both a "must have" and as more tank raised become available, I hope the price comes down so we can afford to keep bigger schools, win, win for us and them ;-)

True that! I've been interested in the dupes since I found out they like or tolerate higher temps. Annnd, I just love their look :) Nice vids you found Lee! Ty!

Ahhhh :( My orange laser cory I just lost. Those were the ones I wanted to keep, but no luck. Great vids! I want to look into breeding the Dupes if I ever find some.

Dupes are my favorite! If I wasn't so poor I would have my 90g filled with them!

Thanks for the awesome vids, Lee. thumbs2:

Forgive my ignorance, but what are those larger cories that aren't so, um, attractive?

Lol, I think they are "hybrids"

All those white worms are gonna constipate his fish! Look how fat they are!

Those are Corydoras fowleri, and they are one of the larger, longer nosed species that I remarked were not that attractive in my book, almost resemble Scleromystax than Corydoras IMO.

Now here's a cory only a mother could love, at least IMO ;-)

Same with C. solox, their coloration reminds me of potato bugs ;-)

Poor horse-faced cories. The 2nd cory type looks horrible on that colour of sand ;P

That's an apt name for them ;-)

Another of the bigger long nosed corys I'm not that fond of, Corydoras Semiaquilus
