  1. Default Help me identify my cories?!?!!?

    So, I finally found what was labeled as sterbai cory cats. At petsmart :( which may mean it could be any mix of anything i know ! :(

    I have 4, and to me for the most part they do look like sterbai's. But two of them have a black dorsal fin, and I haven't seen any sterbai pics w/ them having that. Does that mean that they are some type of hybrid or something??

    Didn't get the best pictures gonna try to get better so, it will be more obvious to see!

    Thanks for any input.

    The ones with the black tipped dorsal fin are Julii Cories. I just picked up a few of them yesterday actually. They get to about 2.5 inches in length.

    The second one is a sterbai. Not sure about the first and last.

    You shouldn't keep them singly in mixed schools - they need their own species to school with.

    I know, when I bought them all of the diff. species were seperated so I assumed I was getting all the same :(

    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    First one could be a Corydoras agassizii but several of the "spotted cory's" look much alike. The other two were properly identified as sterbai and three lined.

    That would be right.
