    I was wondering if y'all could tell me if you know how to see what kind of cory babies are? how old do they have to be before showing their marks? It kinda looks like some of the babies have lines on them but do those go away as they get bigger or is that the type of markings they'll grow up with. There are at least 5 different species of corys that could have bred in this tank...

    My albino fry are completely clear/white while my false julii fry have noticeable black marks as soon as they are born.

    So if they're a slight tanish color with little lines going down the sides they're probably not green or peppered?

    Not sure. I don't have any green. But I did confuse my false julii fry for peppered ones before due to the dark markings. It helped getting to see them lay the eggs. :)
