What kind of corydoras do I have?

CertifiedFishNoob

I bought a few corydoras recently which were labelled as julii corydoras at the LFS but I have a feeling that they could be false julii corydoras after some research. What do you guys think?

My guess is it is more likely they are false julii's. It is my understanding they are far more common.

I have the exact same ones - sold as juliis but actually false juliis.

REAL C.trilineatus !!!!
Is it in a barebottom tank ? QT ?
Think about adding some sand (even in a QT)

Yep they're in QT at the moment, would they be ok without the sand for the two weeks they're gonna be in there or is sand a must have?

Mmmm barebottoms aren't ideal for them (bacterial growth).

Do you have sand in the main tank ?

Wait if that’s a false julli , is this a julli Cory?

The main tank has a gravel and sand mix substrate (though I think it's mostly gravel)

That’s fine for corys

I'd add a hand or two to the QT-tank.
That was why I was asking btw.

Ok thanks! I'll make sure to add some today. Should it cover the entire bottom of the tank?

That isn't necessary. A thin layer
