Im able to tell each of my albino cories apart whether its by a slight difference in color, eye location, fin shape, etc. I can tell Kyle, Gregory, Jimothy and Cauliflower apart. Is anyone else able to do this? Or am I just weird?

Love the names lol. Tell cauliflower I love them very much. They could rival my dynamic trio: Charles, Oliver, and Methamphetamine

Haha I don’t have cories but I can tell my WCMMs apart (except the two newbs I got Wednesday). I have Dos, Tres, Cuatro & Cinco (Uno died). Maybe when the two new guys get bigger they will get named too.

A bonus: Theyre all family: Opal and Lamborghini are the parents of Chonkers, Elvis, and Finley. Saguaro isn’t related to them though.

I have 3 male emerald endler's livebearers (Kakyoin, Heirophant Green, and Emerald Splash) with 2 more on their way to me (I've already decided to name them Koichi and Echoes lol). I'm so particular about getting their names right and identifying them that with the three I have so far, I've drawn two sketches of each of them and their basic fish body shapes. With those sketches, I used colored pencils and drew the color markings that each fish has on each side of their body so I can tell them apart! hilarious Until I no longer need the reference of course. It's probably too much and sounds ridiculous but I'm a very organized and meticulous person haha

I have pygmy cories, and the only way I can tell them apart is by size. One is more rounded, and some are a bit smaller than the others.

I can only tell Bertha apart from the others. You can probably guess why she's called that.

That may be a difference in gender too, females are rounder than males.

I can tell all my peppered corys apart. To be fair though, as of now, there's only four (and 9 eggs ;) ) I've named 2/4
Jet - she's big and her pectoral fins are really long and stick out like airplane wings
Pepper- small, dark

a long time ago I had 6 albino corys - I am pretty sure I could tell each apart. I never shared that before because I thought I was just weird.
