Ahhh, Okie Dokie!!Tom said:Those are skunk corys. This is your fish.
This is what a skunk loach looks like.
Nice pics though.
An example is when I went to buy the sumo loach and the owner/manager said it was a general something loach, so when I got home with it, I looked for it on loaches.com ,while I knew it was a sumo all along, but anywho, there was no general something loach. I even told the guy to go to loaches.com and check it out for himself. Long story short, I got it for about $3 since it wasn't even listed for a price or anything.Butterfly said:Tom is right about the LFS. They have an order sheet and they order so many of what ever species they think will sell. Most of them don't know if they get the right species or not.
Welcome! This is part of fish keeping I enjoy, doing the research etc. but what tipped me off was because I wanted some skunk corys and couldn't find them so I already knew what they looked like and what their scientific name was Speaking of scientific names, sometimes the LFS will have these listed and if you can remember to write it down then it's much easier to find info.There are too many fish that go by the same common name
Now how many do you have? Since their Bandit corys May I suggest Robin Hood, Little John and Maid Marion?
