I've been admiring these guys in Double Dutch's awesome pictures he posts. I like that they have more color than the aeneus they resemble. 2.2" in length and can take temps to 77F. I would love to find some ;-)

Hohoho Lee. There is no black colormorph of C.venezuelanus.
All the black ones are the tank/linebred C.schultzi "black". In one way or the other they are sold everywhere as Venezuela black.
This is caused cause it has some resemblance with a once caught completely black (melanistic ??) Cory in Venezuela. That one "dissappeared" again.
The ones sold nowadays have no connection to that fish, Venezuela, etc.... Only a German Corybreeder.
This weekend someone F1 juveniles from his "wild caught" breedinggroup. Told him that's rubbish woohahahaha. He changed his advertisement without any reaction hahaha

Thing I think is "strange" they seem to don't have the allongated body of C.schultzei hahaha

This is one of my bred C.aeneus.

Nice vids, I've admired your venezuelanus for awhile now through your pictures, but a video is much better IMO ;-)
