Greetings. I'm no expert, either, but I can add that C. trilineatus are extremely variable, to the point where oftentimes one might think that they were most assuredly looking at two distinct species in one group of fish. Additionally, unless the collecting point of the fish is known, there is no way of knowing what you have. The exporters list the fish as C. julii and the person at the lfs is usually instructed to label the tank to match the packing list of the shipment.

That being said, you should just be sure that you have a group as large as you can comfortably house and enjoy them. The larger the group the less chance of cross-breeding, which is theoretically posssible, but extremely unlikely and not something you are likely to encounter.

I hope this helps. - Frank

Cories are very peaceful and get along with everyone. They are a schoaling fish and should be kept in groups of 6 miniimum. A lot of people only keep 2 or 3 but it really is best for them to be kept in larger groups. The larger the better!

Talking Pygmy Cory perching on a leaf

Whoever on here told me that Pygmys love plants (probably Byron) wasn't kidding. here are three pics of a pygmy checking out a leaf near the top of the tank (!), and then just perching on it! For the longest time today I thought I had lost one, but he was hanging out on a leaf too.
