Julii Cory
I'm trying to find some julii cories but everywhere I go they're sold out or there's only one and i would like a school. does anyone know where i could find some good quality ones online or at a store (texas)

btw. is there anyway you can tell the difference between leopards and juliis?? Since they easily get confused i don't want to get the wrong one.

Corydoras julii are rarely imported. What you often see would most likely be Corydoras trilineatus.

how do they differ and how can you tell them apart, especially when they sell them as babies??

Lupes, I see many C julii here along with the C. trilineatus.

When in tanks next to each other, their differences are pronounced. Many Corydoras are not imported anyway as there are mass breeders that distribute and sell them.

Well, if you're still wondering, this website points out the differences between the julii and the trilineatus.

Hope that helps!

Thanks a million!! Now I know the difference I can know what i'm buying cause some of the pet stores i've been to, the people don't seem to know right from left! Any suggestions though on where to purchase some though???

Well... It's hard to say where to buy them, because I don't live in Texas and I've never ordered fish online, but I would suggest talking to your LFS and have them order a school of the c. Julii for you. That seems easiest, in my opinion.

You could try Not sure if they'd have them but you could ask.

I was in a local LFS (I'm in Michigan) and it's very possible that's what I saw but it was a couple weeks ago and I didn't know the difference yet. They were labled julii though and this isn't the type of store to steer you wrong.
