Cory ID ?
 
Hello everyone, I took your advice and got 6 cories for my 29 gallon, it was sad to see my pleco go but it was necessary.

When I got to the pet store, they only had 3 non-albino cories, so I got 3 albino, 2 others, and 1 other.

I was told the long names of the two other types but I forgot them, I was wondering if anyone could ID them for me?

Here's a video of the fish-> YouTube - Cories

The 2 fish I can't name are at 0:17 - 0:33

The other is at 0:39 - 0:51

Thanks!

The first looks like Corydoras paleatus
Corydoras paleatus • Callichthyidae • Cat-eLog • PlanetCatfish

The second looks a lot like Corydoras trilineatus:
Corydoras trilineatus • Callichthyidae • Cat-eLog • PlanetCatfish

I might be wrong though...new to cories myself.

I am pretty sure the first ones are peppered. They look like bigger versions of mine. Mine are so small :(

I dont know about the second.

I think you're right, thanks a ton!

It says that the first are Peppered and the other is a Leopard

I did a lot of window shopping for cories trying to find some that "fit" my local water.

There is an LFS near me that has a bunch of cories in a tank, and sells them as "common cory cats". They always seem to be aeneus, paleatus, or trilineatus. All like cooler water than I generally have, and they get to almost 3", so I settled on Sterbai.
