help with fish ID, please!

Could someone help me ID this fish?

The LFS said it was a trade-in and wasn't sure what it was. I can see that it's a cory of some sort, but what kind? thanks!

Looks like a Trilineatus but could be Agassizi, Peppered, Melanisticus or just a mixture of different types.
Being kept with other corys they get cross-bred sometimes. Either way, its a great looking fish!

I think you're right, it looks just like the agassizi. I wanted to make sure it won't get too big for my tank, but it's just right! Thanks for the ID.
