    Is this indeed Cory Schwartzi ? link Notice that the Dorsal fin may or may not have the vertical black strip. Are they the same ?

    I mix up this one. This is Cory Agassizii I believe.

    i think agassizi has patches/dots of black rather than black line on the body like those of schwartzi's.
    To each her own fish !

    wah lao ! so cute one...

    Question:
    will diff sp. of corys treat one another as if they are of the same sp. and happily school together ?
    what other sp. besides the Trilineatus and the albino corys are the cheaper ones coz $8-10 each is a bit exp for me...
    lastly what do the Seng Bros have currently ?

    thanks.

    Well...

    I have a mix of them at home and they seem to be doing well together.

    I have a pair of pandas, a pair of sterbai's, one trilineatus and one pestai and they seem to be mixing well...foraging for food together and even "playing" in front of the water outlet from my filter together...

    ah, talking about cories playing at the water outlet, have anyone seen their cories 'surfing'? The cory need 2 be exactly at a certain area, just slightly above the water turbulence. I don't know how but 1 of mine does it. Not regularly though. The others constantly go directly against the water outlet.
    If you've learnt, teach, if you have, give.
    Don't walk behind me as I might not lead, don't walk in front of me as I might not follow. Walk beside me, as my friend.
