Looks like it could be a Brochis Cory Cat

From the one picture, the dorsal fin does not look big enough to be a Brochis catfish. Brochis have ~10 to 18 rays; less than 10 rays will be a Corydoras. Any other pictures?


It looks like a Black Band Cory, Corydoras zygatus
Corydoras zygatus • Callichthyidae • Cat-eLog

Ill try to get some later... And that looks a lot like mine but when I read the description it says they rarely come out during the day and these are always out and playing and eating..

C. zygatus was my first thought too, but I suspect it is not this species. I agree it is not a Brochis [if this genus is still valid...], but Corydoras [as it is still considered...], but we will need some clearer photos to go much further.
