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

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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
