Can you help me ID my corys?
I was told they are Melafini or is it Melanini Corys, it even said something like that on the tank, but on researching pictures I came across nothing called this. I want to make sure they wont grow humongous, I like the size they are at although they may get bigger. Sorry for the poopy pictures, I hope you can work with them! (They are on the bottom, obviously, my black skirts were obsessed with them and wouldnt leave them be)

Here's a pic for comparison. Be advised that C. davidsandsi are often confused with C. melini. Regards, Frank

Yep, Corydoras melini.

They won't grow huge, only 2 inches maximum. Lovely fish. :)
