I was on the way home from a shopping trip & due to roadworks I had to take a diversion & spotted a tiny Lfs I’d not seen before so of course I had to stop & check it out.....
Meet my new babies, labelled as ‘spotted’ corys, excuse the poor photos they’re still a bit skittish

I don’t think I could have resisted them either. Do you know what species they are?

Nice, I keep meaning to get myself some corydora - then I end up getting something else. My first thought was corydoras polystictus - many spotted corydora. Or maybe c. similis. Not great with corydora here. Either way I'm liking them!!

I’m hoping they’ll eventually spawn for me, it’d be nice to have a large group of them

Nice find. I believe there are two colortypes in C.similis. Do you've got both ?

It could be just the lighting in the pics I’m no photographer, in the flesh I haven’t noticed any difference

Haha possibly, there’s been some weird stuff going on lately

Ahhh okay. There is a more reddish type as well. Never kept them but they are awesome.

Corydora is not a word. It is Corydoras whether singular or plural. And when it is written as part of a scientific name, the "C" in the Genus name must always be capitalized, as Corydoras polystictus or C. similis.

Coradee , very nice pickup.It is always a pleasure to find a new store, but one with interesting fish is a rare treat!

Coolio, I usually just say cory or corydora, I'll add the s from now on then! Also with the capital, that's just a matter of me being too lazy to switch to caps rather than wanting to be accurate. I'm just commenting on a post about some cool new fish after all.

Lovely. I bought 3 Corys about three years ago and they have been doing great, in fact they bred when I wasn't looking.

My tank is in my livingroom next to my chair and I sometimes catch the largest one out of the corner of my eye looking at me. When I turn to look she takes off. lol

Mine are more active at night and are a little skittish too
