The fish pictured is Corydoras trilineatus.
This species, like C. julii, is in our profiles and the info there tells how to tell them apart, plus there are photos.

Don't know why I bother working so hard on the profiles if no one uses them.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Sorry Byron.
All these spots and stripes and high variableness really confuses me. The one photographed has thick patterning, the other one (you can see him behind the first in the second photo) has much thinner speckling and is more spotted.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

In the profile it lists the differences, mainly the head patterning. Your fish are clearly C. trilineatus because they have a reticulated patterning on the head.

Sorry, I don't know who is handling the marine side, I am strictly fresh water. I would post in the appropriate saltwater section.
