Need help identifying Cory
 
I went through the fish profiles and narrowed it down to three possibles.

-Reticulated Cory
-Julii Cory
-Three Stripe Cory

Any thoughts which of the three it might be? Also, how do I sex a cory?


If I place this fish in with my breeding albino corys, will it crossbreed with them? I will try and snag a clearer picture of the fish a bit later, its a bit camera shy.

I don't think it is a Julii. These corydoras are pretty rare and are typicaly spotted.

Looks like a three stripe/leopard corydoras to me. The Tropical Fish Profiles (top left of this page) can fill you in on how to take care of them.:-D

Apologies, I guess they are Juliis. Maybe I spelled it wrong?

thefishboy 11-11-2010 03:13 PM

Yes defo get ome more 3 would be ok but a group of 6 in total would be realy good, more fun behaviour...:-)

Yeah I keep trying but my local shops always have ones that look sick or unhealthy :( I've tried multiple times with their jullis but they all just die off. This one I have was the healthiest and I got her and she lived.
