Ya, I think so too, ****. I guess they mislabeled them at the pet store. They did seem more like like Venezuelans when younger. I will go and get some actual Venezuelan cories now. Thanks.

Years ago C.venezuelanus wasn't a species on its own and was called C.aeneus as well. Then "crossbreds" were made and even used to "create" a green C.aeneus (though there is a natural.one as well).
Looking at the reddish fins there could be some C.venezuelanus blood in this one.

Think those are indeed green Corys ass a result of venezuelanus × aeneus (or aeneus x aeneus in the early days).

A scottish expert once told me that C.aeneus was crossed with C..venezuelanus to get a hardier Cory.
So the captive bred ones can have more or less Aneneus blood for that reason

They show more "blotches" that belong to C.venezuelanus
