The second fish might be Corydoras(ln5) sp(cw008) rather than Corydoras(ln5) elegans.

WOW! guys that was fast. I was hoping that was C. napoensis. Any recommendations on breeding. They go through the spawning motions but no eggs yet.
Thanks Bob

Hi,

I would tentatively also say C. napoensis and C. elegans.
CW008 looks also similar but to my experience this is unlike many other species in the elegans group quite uniform in colouration and has a more regular striped pattern.

C. nanus can be excluded by minimum 100% ;-).

Cheers,
