Long finned albino with look like bronze cories w/striped tail/dorsal


Long finned albino--sorry dead one in pic but you can see long pectoral














These are just fabulous with spots turning into stripes!


This has to be a syno of some kind because his finnage and barbels are very similar to my nigriventris but this guy was about 5-6 inches long.

There were more cories and other cats as well but I didn't get pix of them. Hopefully can go again soon! Wish I had more room as I wanted so many of these beauties. smile.gif

3rd pic looks like a c. reticulatus with c. trilineatus in background. 4th pic possibly c. agassizii

1ST

Background: - C gossei
Foreground: - C paleatus-albino

2ND

C paleatus-albino

3RD

C Elegan group, maybe C bilineatus

4TH

Corydoras species C87

5TH

C axelrodi

6TH

Centre: - C septentrionalis
Either side: - C panda

7TH

Corydoras species C3

8TH

Not sure at this oblique of an angle, and what looks like a clear caudal fin;
points to it being C weitzmani as opposed to C tukano or C reynoldsi

9TH

C robineae

10TH

not to good on this group of Tanganyikan squeakers
Maybe S petricola

Agree with the Cory I.Ds, definately C.weitzmani in pic.8. I think that the Syno is multipunctatus although grandiops is very much like it, but I would go for the former.

I should have said It may be a juvenile S petricola, unsure.gif
I couldn't see any white flashes to the caudal fin, and that was the basis for me not considering S multipunctatus or S grandiops.
Mind you they can be variable, and a tad hard to pin down exactly, unless you are into rift valley Syno's, which I ain't sad.gif

Its just the lack of any bright white in the fins and as far as I can see the first ray in the dorsal is not white, multipunctatus has a more kind of dirty white or hyaline to the fine edges. Along with the larger spots as well although as you state, petricola has kind of larger spots when young.
