Identification help: corydoras aenus or splendens?

possumWallup

I picked up a few corydoras that were labeled as "Green Cory" and to my knowledge would refer to C. Aenus (the same as the albino cories I already had). Once acclimated, I noticed that the behavior of these "green" cories seems different from my albinos--the green ones very seldom leave the substrate while my albinos frequently swim across the tank mid-column. Also, the two groups seen to ignore each other. My plan was to keep a larger school of C. Aenus rather than two groups of different cories.

Pictures attached.

Fascinating! Ive always assumed them to be a different color variant of C. aeneus. I’ve got a similar looking bunch and now you’re making me doubt

These are C.aeneus (not the green variaty but the common bronze)

Edit : Looking closely they might be green Aeneus after all (reddish fins).

But 100% C.aeneus
