I've had this Cory for time, but never could get a good idea on what species. Like all cory's with small spots, the LFS's around here just seem to call these generically as "Spotted Cory Cat" or inaccurately as "Julli Cory", which always turn out to be trilineateus anyway. Anyone got any guesses?

Some of these spotted Cory's are getting a bit of a nightmare now as there are a few with C and CW numbers but your specimen, well fed may I add smile.gif looks like C.brevirostris.

Thanks for the input. I guess it getting rather portly. I used to have 2 others with an almost identical spot pattern and body size, along with 2 schwartzi's and and two others that may have been agassizi's, but unfortunately, they have all passed sad.gif . It's a shame that I don't see more of these anymore. Trilineatus' are beginning to show up again here, but I'm still looking for more like this one. Nothing against the paleatus' and albino aenus' I see all the time here, but this one doesn't seem like to hang with other corys who don't have spots. At least it's warmed up to the young trilineatus I added this week.
