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

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".

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.

I was going to say melanistius, but I never heard of brevirostris

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
