Sorry for the pictures my camera is not great.

Also, I went to a small pet store today. I bought 4 albino corys to finish my school and she said she wanted to empty the tank so gave me all her inhabitants..which were a single panda cory and ANOther black angel about the size of a dime (only angel left in the store and I had bought one from this school 2 weeks ago) So in my 36 g atm I have 2 dime size black angels, a quarter size koi angel and a toonie size Smokey angel..thank goodness I am getting a bigger tank in a couple weeks! I hope a couple of them pair. If they dont I will have the means to separate. I of course will get the little panda some friends, she said he had been alone in there for months poor little fella!

First seems to be a julii, more likely a trilineatus. Does it have little dots or small squiggles on its forehead?

The others are agassizii cory.

Well my of my 5 other juliis I think 4 are false and was is true. This guy has a black mask like a panda. there are not squigglies on his head it is mainly blackish, his body form seems different than a Julii.

The fish in post #6 is a Corydoras punctatus. The fish in post #9 is a Corydoras julii.

Ryan, Sterbai are similar looking to Juliis except for three main differences. Sterbai are larger, darker colored, and have orange pectoral fins. Here's a picture of one of mine. image

I guess I was wrong. Agassizis seem to have a longer snout than the punctatus. Maybe that's the way to differentiate the two since I personally think they look very similar.

The stockier body and lack of dark eye stripe in the Agassizii is what made me think Punctatus.
