Got a couple of great shots of one of our rhino plecos last night while doing water changes!








Oh, and this little guy too!! I need more of them. He's one lonely little corydora.

The lone cory is Corydoras trilineatus, or three-lined cory. I need more of them too! Where did you get yours? We used to be able to get them around here, but the shop closed. Sad

We got him at animal jungle a year ago. We have always looked for more but have not seen them either in the last year.

He was an odd fish by himself in a tank of Danios. We have had him a long time. Always thought he was a false julii, glad to get a positive ID on him finally. He needs friends! Haha.

Jen, I hope you can find some! Tris are collected from different areas. Mine are Rio Ucayali and I can't find any lately, but the Fin & Feather in Ashland had some recently that looked just like yours! That is, darker and bolder squiggly lines (vermiculation) on the face like yours have. Maybe when you come up for the meeting you can stop at F&F.
Very Happy

It seems like all the "julii" cories we ever see are actually the trilineatus, to the point where it's a shock to see a real julii. I have not seen any recently myself, either type.

We ought to check out Azalea, too, since often Keith will have some lurking in a random tank somewhere. You really have to examine each tank carefully in that shop but sometimes there's a real gem to be had. Especially if Keith is not there at the time....

(Did I say that out loud?!) Shocked
