What type of Corydoras is this???

Post by Katja »

Hi. My lfs got these Cory’s in and they were mislabeled. I ended up getting a few but neither the owner or anyone can figure out what they are. I’ve searched for different types of Cory’s on this form and others and still can’t find a match.

Can anyone identify them correctly?
Thanks I’m advance.

The dorsal fin looks abit different with not as much of a black tip. Also the spots were a bit more blotchy like with pepper Cory’s. But possibly. Will se when they get a bit older.

Definitely a juvenile Brochis. B. splendens is the most commonly bred so I expect it's that. But someone was breeding and selling Brochis multiradiatus fry also, through Aquarium Glaser last year.

FWIW, I don't recall the differences between the two fry.

Cheers, Eric
