Emerald green is Bronchis splendens. That's not a bronchis. It's a corydoras. Bronze corydoras (Corydoras aeneus) is correct.

The other on the left is indeed peppered corydoras (Corydoras paleatus).

So my LFS must be mistaken because I found Corydoras aeneus listed under Emerald Green Corydoras today at there store they look identical to what I have but I have looked at the pics on the web and they do not look like anything other than Bronze corydoras. I bought 3 aeneus and 3 peppered cories today while there.

I agree that its a bronze cory. They are one of my faves and also one of the more commonly found species.

If you read our profile of Corydoras aeneus and Brochis splendens, the differences are explained (how to easily tell them apart). It also mentions that both fish are frequently mis-named and confused in stores. "Common" names are just that--common to one store frankly. "Green cory" can refer to either fish--after all, both look like a "cory" as they are closely related genera.

As previous members have correctly stated, your pictured fish (on the right) is Corydoras aeneus. The left cory is C. paleatus.
