    Bought these at the LFS but I cant remeber their name. When I went back there was no more and Im looking for more. Any help would be great 20170415_141643.jpg

    That is not a corydoras it is a catfish of the Sydontis Sp. I am not an expert on them though. You'll have to poke around the internet and find out the exact species of Sydontis

    I suggest you search up "spotted cories"

    Definitely some sort of Synodontis, they can be hard to identify as young because the color pattern is often different from adults. I'd be careful about how many you get, as some species can grow quite large, and many tend to be solitary fish rather than shoaling.

    Great catch / swap. Probably trilineatus sold as julii all over the world.
