What Kind Of Corydora Is This?

    I went to the pet store to get some medicine for another fish, and I got suckered into adopting this guy. He's been there for about 4 months all by his lonesome, and I felt bad for him. I' just curious as to what kind he is. Thanks!

    Looks like a Peppered Cory to me.
    He has some fin damage.

    I agree that it appears to be a peppered corydoras. He does have damage to his fin and tail. He also looks like he is missing his barbels. Poor buddy. Did you happen to notice what other fish were in his tank at the store?

    Do you have him in a QT tank now?

    He was by himself, and yes, he is in a quarantine tank. We already had another fish in Qt, so he's with him.

    That's good. Do your best to keep the water as pristine as possible. Hopefully he will start to heal very soon. Watch carefully for signs of infection because then you may want to treat with medication. Good luck! Hope he pulls through!

    He is kind of starved. Be good to him, but don't overfeed!
