Corydoras habrosus

Here are a couple of Corydoras habrosus, or "habbies," snuggling under the plants. These corys are one of the pygmy types and grow to just over one inch, with the females being a little stouter overall.

What corys do you have?

This is my Sterbai Cory:

I also have some very nice sized Peppered Cories, I will get a pic sometime soon.

Nice corys, everyone! ThumbsUp


Corydoras sodalis

Corydoras sodalis is a medium-size cory with a beautiful reticulated pattern and a silvery color. The only place in town that sold them has closed.

David, they are one of the most attractive corys IMO and they don't get very big, which is another thing I like about them.
Here is an older pic of them in a white sand tank.

The sodalis/reticulatus group and the napoensis/nanus group are some of my favorites (abnd habrosus). I have no Corys now :>(

No corys?!?!? that's a disaster that needs to be remedied! *lol*

C. napoensis is one of my favorite corys. I have only the one which I got in Tappahannock about four years ago. He's doing great as a single but it would be even better to find some more of this species.

Corydoras napoensis

Post your cory pix here!

Sorry to resurrect an old post but got these Gold Laser Cory's from Skoolz of Fish three weeks ago and they are awesome in the Tank. Best pics I could get right now, these guys are quite active and hard to get a good still shot. Really attractive when light hits them.

Corydoras sp. (Cw010)

I'm enjoying the Cory pictures. I haven't had any in my tanks in 20 years. I guess that is why I spend so much time viewing the Cory tanks whenever I visit the LPS. Nice pictures and good looking fish!!!ThumbsUp

Sad  Johnny, I'm sad for you. *lol* Is it time to have corys again?

Here is one more from me.
These are three-lined corys, Corydoras trilineatus, often called C. julii, or "julies," in the shops.  I suspect very few hobbyists in the world can tell the difference between real julii corys and other lined-and-dotted corys.  One clue is that the true julii will have slightly shorter and stouter bodies and rounded off noses.  Body patterns are unreliable, according to Ian Fuller. Very Happy

Ron, those cories are fantastic! I bet they do look wonderful when the light hits them. Wow. I still have my peppered cories and have just added a few sterbai-need to get pictures!

Nice!!! So many fish, so few tanks... Thanks for sharing. I found it interesting. I have to admit that I would not have known the difference between the two...

That is some great photography too. The colors, clarity and composition are fantastic. The focus is all on the subject. Good work. My pictures suck. Yours look good... 
tipsy

Deb I couldn't resist. Here's a picture of my new Julies
Cories. Are they knock offs or the real deal?

First of all CONGRATS! on your new corys, Johnny! ThumbsUp  I'm sure life has just gotten that much sweeter for you!

Well, I wouldn't say knock-off! *lol* C. trilineatus is a perfectly nice cory in its own right, and that's what I think you have.  Tris are more easily available, while julii are only found in one or two specific and harder to get to locales.
Very Happy

Thanks for the encouragement. I thought that more than likely they were C. trilineatus. Are both domesticated and considered ornamental fish or are they captured in the wild?Cool

As far as I know, there are (verified) spawning records for both of these species showing that they have spawned in somebody's aquarium.  However, also AFAIK, these two species are still collected from the wild for the hobby, especially C. julii, if it is collected at all.

I had four C. julii once.  They came from Mark Denaro in his Anubias Design days.  We knew they were real julii because both Ian Fuller and Frank Falcone said so. Wink  My C. julii were mature fish and quite large for the species.  IMO they looked nothing like C. trilineatus, but I wasn't surprised as Ian had told me the body and head patterns can be very variable and confusing.  

The place of capture is the real key to species identification.  Where did you get your corys from?  Maybe we can backtrack and get some more information from the seller.

C. aeneus, paleatus, and maybe panda are commercially farmed, but I think all the other Corydoras species in the trade are still mostly wild-caught, as are Brochis, Pimelodus, Otocinclus, and most "plecos" except Ancistrus (bristlenose) and Pterygoplichthys (sailfin plecos). Of course shops that buy or trade fish from local breeders (most big chains dont) might have other species captive-bred on occasion. Maybe some other Corys are now mass-farmed too, I dont know.
