Does anyone know what these little guys are? I got them on kijiji awhile ago and they don't seem to be growing any larger than they are. Thanks!
Bronzs corys tend to have a green iridescent sheen in the lower body and a tan/bronze coloring along the top and dorsal fin.Thanks, that's what they were being sold as on kijiji, just wanted to make sure. Some of the images of emerald greens look a lot more green so i wasn't sure. They don't seem to be getting bigger than an inch either. Although they did have a few babies (eggs)
now that im looking at bronze corydoras they look more like that..
They eat like pigsThey are the common Corydoras aeneus, most often called the Bronze Cory, though they do have some green iridescence on the body. Green, or Emerald Green, is C. (Brochis) splendens, a very different and much deeper bodied fish, and has more green on it. The Bronze also has a shorter dorsal fin than the Green. There are other populations of C. aeneus with variations on the color. Some are thought to be undescribed species.
As to why they are not growing any larger, I would suspect they are not getting enough good food.
