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?:)

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?:)

Blue, too late... you've kept others guessing about you from the start. You're quite the character at times, with a great sense of humor and a big heart. We all love you so much, we have to wonder what you look like. That's only natural. :D

Well, it's true, isn't it?:dunno: Unless you need it, I won't post it.:wink2: I had 2 sub-species though the other one died recently.:blueworry: And anyway, if I post it here, we're on the boundary of being off-topic.:tongue:
