Mine haven't shown up yet. If the dorsal is that long it is probably the correct fish. Did you buy them by "Emerald catfish" or by "Brochis Slpendens" Or by "Emerald Brochis"? The first could be anything including the Bronze Cory, the other two, if the shop gets their names right, would be correct. The differences that are important to me are the higher hardness, pH and temperature range of the cat over the cory. Otherwise I wouldn't really care which I got colour and look wise.... I'd have been happy if I managed a bandit cory initially.
Here is a comparative pair of pics from the internet, they are good examples to be able to see the difference in the dorsal fin, otherwise, colouring could just be a variance between the fish specimens. The first is the Cory and the second is the catfish.
