Here's one I really liked, they were always out front, have that awesome dorsal fin and great body striping, cool black mask but when the 75 overheated they were the first to go. They do not like their temperatures very high, mid 70's is all. If TWS ever gets them in again I believe they will be a good candidate for the 40 as that tank stays a little cooler. They have been in the trade a little longer, they came with the next wave of Cory's in the 60's. I like them because they are just a little different with the before mentioned dorsal fin, they reach a lengh of 2.8" but I've seen some females as big as 3".

"Schwartz's Cory"

There's even a sub species or man made variety called the "super schwartzi" with a really high dorsal fin ;-)

They do leave the substrate in a group like this, I also liked the cool lighting in the vid ;-)

I like those alot, the color pattern is awesome, as well as that "sailboat" looking dorsal fin

The poster on you tube said these were schwartzi but they look more like Matts C. leucomelas to me.

The one that comes in at 2:12 could be a schwartzi but not the rest IMO.

Yes, those are leucomelas

I have 3 of the 5 originals left

Another video of my own schwartzi when they first arrived, I believe they will go into my 40 for sure, I really miss them :(

The Schwartzi are more outgoing then their cousins so here's a decent video of them and the whole tank ;-)

Such cuties. They definitely look like they have been well fed, LOL! What is that tetra with the heavy black line- so pretty? Im sure you have told me, but I forget.

Are you talking about the one I zoomed in at 1:07? If so that's a Chocolate neon or Hyphessobrycon vilmae

The schwartzi are doing great in my 40, still out front most of the time even after 2 weeks ;-)

Good news, glad they are doing well so far!

That's nice to see. I have schwartzi, leucomelas, and caudimaculatus in my 40g and all of them hide either in the back behind plants or under the driftwood until supper time. Then i get to see them. The duplicareus in my 20g also hide when I come near the tank, but the sterbai in my 25g are out a little more.

Well they are still staying out front, mostly in the left hand corner and eat anything that they can find, I will try and shoot another video of them under the new LED tonight ;-)

I'm really enjoying the schooling action they are showing, I've always ordered cory's in groups of six but this time I got seven.

It is so nice to know they are remaining out front for you, showing off their pretty selves! I'll look forward to your video. Seven sounds like an ideal batch, btw.

Of course they did not all come out together :(

Beauties! They have such a neat coloration. I hope they remain ever-curious and out front for you.
All of your fish look great, Lee.

Updated video of my C. schwartzi, six of them are from the original 7 I got last December 2017 and the other three I got in September this past year. I've never seen them try and spawn.

Those are really pretty ones- and those tummies... they have been eating well. :)
Have you ever had your corydoras spawn for you? If mine have I have never seen it. I envy those who aren't trying to spawn them but just lift a leaf and find some babies have survived on their own. That would be so cool.

The Pencils and Phantoms are looking great as well...

My corys always liked to spawn after I did a large WC and replaced with cooler water. Then they were like "oh boy!" all over the tank. They are really fast to go back and eat the eggs too-as well as the other fish (Oh boy-free buffet!) so if you are lucky you can find some on the glass or leaves the next day. I was just luck that they laid some eggs on top of my tall anubias leaves and somehow the other fish missed it when I was able to get some eggs out of my albino aeneus.

Getting schwartzi to spawn is quite difficult. They are all wild caught for that reason.

DD does indeed know his stuff, my research has shown they are indeed hard to spawn, they must be numerous and easy to collect in the wild, as their prices are not to high $6 to $10 depending on the dealer ;-)

Just remember to keep these guys at a little lower temp 72 to 75F.
