Loooonnngggng dorsal fin on paleatus Corydoras
I was wondering if anyone had ever seen a dorsal fin like this on a paleatus corydoras (at least that what I think this is)
the photos aren't the best but you'll get the idea. I assume it's an anomaly? In the meantime, it sure is pretty. Would love to hear your thoughts.

A C. Paleatus is a peppered cory, I believe what you have is a C. Longipinnis. They are apparently from the same area and can be confused for each other. Here is a discussion I found on Planet Catfish if you are interested. http://www.planetcatfish.com/forum/v...p?f=5&p=128227When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top...

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

Thanks! I appreciate the info. I bought them as peppered cory so it would seem even the LFS did not know what they had.:o) Which means I got a bargain. It will soon be 2 years since I've had this guy and 1 other with a long dorsal but not as long as this one. The other 4 must be peppered cory or female. All are camera shy so I was lucky to get these 2 less than stellar picts.

c. Longipinnis' fins are big but they still are erect. However, there are longfin versions of certain cories, paleatus being one of them.
The elongated fins look exactly like in your picture. I assume that some longfins could come mixed in with normal cories, at least that is how I got my longfin panda.

Very nice, I'm always surprised that some LFS don't know what they have.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
