What kind of cory cat is this? The closest thing I could find is an axelrod. At times all the black is much darker. I have four of these. I believe this particular fish is a female.

Did they show the species name when you bought them. Because if so they might be able to tell you what it is.

It looks a lot like a corydoras adolfoI or corydoras axelrodI to me. Check out to look for more, but those two are the ones I'm going for. More the axelrodI than the adolfoI but they both look similar.

ETA: here's the axerodI page

And here's the adolfoI page

When I got them they were sold to me as pandas. They were a lot smaller, but once they grew I realized they weren't pandas.


EDIT: I took a look at the axelrod page and I think that's the closest I'm going to find. There sure are a lot of variations in look between same species photos.

Corydoras imitator are often confused and mislabeled as Corydoras pandas. However the black horizontal mark your fish shows in its body (apart from the one in its back) makes me think in the same direction than Kuhnsture. Yours look like Corydoras axelrodI juvenile to me.

I would consider it just Corydoras species in the mean time and provide care as with most corys (high veggie diet, adequate sized schoal, reasonable air gap between the water surface and the lid, either neutral or towards soft/acidic water).

Nah she's about 2.5 inches, fully matured female. I've had her for around two years.
