^_^ Mugging for the camera
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

I like mine too. But I have to wonder what's up with the albino I have. I swear he never grew one bit in two years. He must be half (or less) the size of all my others.

bronchis splendens are often sold as "emerald green corys" , corydoras aeneus are true corys (that bronchis splendens get confused for). usually corydoras aeneus are sold as "green corys" or "bronze corys".
bronchis splendens are just armored catfish that look like corys and are often sold as corys.

Until just recently I've only had a (1) Cory in my tank due to the throught that my tetras and GBR's wouldn't leave enough food behind to support more of these little playfull fish. After reading some threads here I now have 3 Pygmy's and 3 Panda's which are extremely fun to watch as they swim over each other, beside each other and under each other searching the tank for anything they might think is eatable. I feed my tank a combination of flakes and freeze dried tubiflex with an addition of blood worms (these don't sink). Is there a specilized food for Cory's I should be looking into? I've read Dave's primer on Cories and it says all worms are fair game but I don't want to introduce live worms into my tank.
I really do love Cory's after watching them in my tank.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
