Thread: Cory ID!

  1. Default Cory ID!

    Simple....I just need help IDing these cories. My best guess is Corydoras brevirostris or Corydoras leucomelas. They were labeled under punctatus cories, and my friend bought them.

    Thanks! I hope everyone enjoys attempting to ID things as much as I do, and I wish for lots of input!

    Corydoras leucomelas1.jpgI would suggest Corydoras leucomelas as well. Photo attached. Certianly this is not C. punctatus. C. brevirostris is also close, but from the photos I have seen the spotted patterning is more dense than on C. leucomelas and your fish.

    Assuming this is C. leucomelas, this species spends almost all of its time off the substrate. A tank with plenty of plants is advisable. I have a trio of this species in with 40 various corys and the three are always up on plant leaves browsing for tidbits of food.

    Thanks guys! I'll bet you are right. One last question....I'd never seen these before, and my friend bought them for $7 apiece. Good buy or no?

    I can't say because you are in the US and I'm in Canada so prices vary a lot; I recall I paid closer to CDN $12 for mine. But I will say that this species will be wild caught, and thus seasonal and likely more expensive that "run of the mill" corys that are raised commercially.
