  1. Default What kind of Cory is this?

    Hi, I am trying to add to the aquarium by getting additional cory's. I currently have one and would like to create a school. Since I hear that it is easier to create schools of the same type of corys, can you help me identify what type of cory I have so I can get more? Please see the picture. Thanks!

    Almost looks like a leopard cory to me

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Looks like either a brevirostris cory or a melanistius cory... The melanistius are more common in shops by me, but they're all considered "spotted cories".

    The first pic is brevirostrius:

    And the second pic is melanistius:

    I can't figure out which, if any, it is!

    Corydoras melanistius:

    HOWEVER, on Planet Catfish, they look significantly different than the above website:

    The tail puts me in mind of C. leucomelas, but the nose isn't quite right and the spots aren't quite large enough.

    I'm going to go with melanistius.
    "The Dumpster Tank" 26g flat back hex - Betta albimarginata, corydoras, checker barbs, pork chop rasbora

    "Nano Fish Tank" 20g long - Celestial Pearl Danios, microrasboras, Corydoras habrosus

    "Mbuna Tank" 75g - Ps. saulosi, I. sprengerae, M. pulpican, M. joanjohnsonae

    "Time Out Tank" 29g - dominant male Cynotilapia sp. "hara"

    I just got the same "cat" 2 days ago-
    It was advertised as a "Spotted Cat".
    I found it to be a "Spotted Cory Cat", Corydoras Melanistius
