what kind of cory did i buy?!
it was sold to me as a green hump corie however i suspect that it is not. there were green hump cories in the tank next to them and they didnt look anything like this one. this guy was sold to me for $5.50. please help me identify him! also can anyone provide a site with the differnt species of cories?

It looks like you have a Spotted Cory!

after some research i dug up a picture of a black sail spotted cory. can anyone confirm this? anyone have one?

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

Another picture of Corydoras melanistius.

i just checked out corysrus and it could be like 5 different ones. this guy is tiny so i think he's a juvi still..

I'm so confused when it comes to C-numbers.:crazy: 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?:)

Spotted Cory - Corydoras brevirostris

It also looks a bit like Corydoras brevirostris!
