Spotted/lined cory ID

Post by MissNoodle »

Having a hard time pinpointing these guys in the database, their markings are a lot like the trilineatus but also like the spotted cories....
Closest guess I have is c018? perhaps Sodalis? Some of the variations appear similar, but I am not sold on that.

Not my fish, asking for someone on a discord group

Hi MissNoodle,

I'm not convinced the two are the same, but one does look like C. sodalis.

Best, Eric

Wow, I have to admit that video is difficult to watch in a helpful way. The fish are active they rarely sit still.

As far as ID, they still look mostly like C. sodalis, but their movements are so jerky that it's difficult to know if I'm looking at the same fishes over and over, vs. a full complement of all the fishes in the tank. Moreover, their color pattern is certainly not classic mature C. sodalis. Maybe this is a juvenile pattern? Or they're something else I don't recognize.

Aside from the ID, they are very thin. They would benefit from a sand substrate and lots of good food. Hopefully they'll grow into an easier-to-identify color pattern.

Good luck to them.

Best,
Eric
