Is this Corydoras sanchesi?

Post by comadrreja »

Hi all.
Can you identify this corydora? Has come from a wholesaler in the Czech Republic as C Sanchezi. It is about 3 cm long.
I do not think it's a C. sanchesi.
Thanks

Hi comadrreja,
To me, this looks like Corydoras elegans or something similar.

Definitely not sanchesi. Can't trust fish ID from many breeders in Czechoslovakia. IDs are often wrong.

Cheers, Eric

Thanks for your answer, bekateen. I think the same that you. It is some of the elegans group. I'll wait for it to grow in order to ID correctly
