  1. Question Which cory is this?

    0 Not allowed!
    I bought him at Walmart in a tank labeled corydoras. I now know there was at least 3 different kinds in the tank. You all have told me I need to keep 1 kind of corycat I would be happy to ablige if I knew which one this is. I thought I knew but now I am flipping between 2 kinds. Which cory cat is this?

    Bad pics. He doesn't like the camera even with the flash off.

    I'm no cory expert, but I think that might be a really boldly coloured peppered cory.

    Am I the only one who thought of a featherfin?

    But those aren't corydoras. The marks look most like a julii cat IMO, but all the juliis I've seen are wayyy lighter.

    EDIT: How big is he?

    Double edit: Forget juliis, he looks a lot like a filigree cory to me

    Not a Cory, it's a baby Synodontis eupterus. In about 5-6 months it will be around 8" and the pattern will be completely different.

    Ok I looked that one up 8 inches huh. well I 'm glad he can be alone and I have a 55 gal tank. I thought he was either a false julli or a sterba. He is about an 1 1/2 long. Quite a personality too. I am glad I posted this here before I went and tried to find him 5 more friends lol.

    Holy garbage, I woke up this morning and fed the fish. This little guy grew like a 1/2 to 1" almost over night. He looks quite a bit different already. His feather fin started growing nicely. He is real cute. I'm glad I can keep him, even with the miss label.

    Ya, eupterus grow like weeds, won't take long at all for it to reach adult size. Just beware of the Asian upside-down cats that occasionally turn up at Wal-Mart. They're black all over with a few "flakes" of gold or silver color on their sides. Look like Synodontis, but they're not, they are actually quite aggressive for their size. Tend to kill each other unless there are 10 or more, good to mix (one) with larger, aggressive cichlids but they don't play well with others in a "community" tank.
