Corydoras ? #1
I have a Cory but am unsure of what it is ....I have tried to get a picture but it wont stay out front for long enough. LOL It is not a Julii...looks the same age as Julii but seems a little longer.Looks like largish black speckles.The body looks lighter than the tail.Tail has black and white stripes(more black than white).Looks more aerodynamic than the Julii.Stripes are not horizontal

Re: Corydoras ? #7
It looks like a kind of Synodontis. How long are the barbels?
