It would be best if you concentrate on scientific names rather than common names. Common names are not always accurate.
I tried the name, Black Sail Spotted Corydoras and ended up with one Corydoras melanistius.
Is this the one?:)

I'm ready for the pressure.

I'm so confused when it comes to C-numbers. Tried C004 or Corydoras virginiae in Planetcatfish and it seems the markings are almost the same. But then again we still have Corydoras melanistius as other option. What are the others you have tried, Weaselnoze?:)
