    It's also known as C. sp. cf. steindachneri

    And yes, they were from Choong Sua.

    eh.. C. sp. cf. steindachneri is different from C. macropterus so don't mistake them for being the same fish. the fish zac has is probably C. sp. cf. steindachneri. C. macropterus is slightly larger with a lighter body colour. at first i thought they were C. macropterus but after looking through my Aqualog, i think they're C. sp. cf. steindachneri.

    i think they are C. sp. cf. steindachneri, C. macropterus "nose" looks sharper

    if it's Corydoras steindachneri, the common name is Steindachner's Cory

    if it's Corydoras macropterus, the common name is Hi Fin Peppered Cory

    well since they're C. sp. cf. steindachneri, the commonly used named would be Hi-Fin Paleatus following the aqualog.

    Selective bred Corydoras Paleatus, the common Peppered Corydoras.
    I really hate breeders that do this, we have 155 described species with out makin gour own.
    Please do not buy them, tell the store owner they are not true Corydoras, anything just try and stop the trade.

    Hi there,

    just confirmed recently from Planet Catfish's Ian that these are long-finned varieties of C. Paleatus. And I got them at $12 each... Not a price I'd pay had I known earlier that these were man-made... But anyway, the stocks at Chong Sua were left with only weaker ones, thus I'd advise you not to get them.

    But I've heard that C328 has some, conditions unknown.

    Well, this is a difficult thing to do. Try telling the LH owners that their fish was man-made and non-existent in the scientific database, you think they'll bother??

    And the way these cories are bred, they do really look attractive.
    And for your info, I've seen some pics of this species from as early as Jan 2002. So this has been around for some time already.

    Here is the site and check the date on the photo credit :

    I knew of their existence some time ago but you do not see them very often.
    I like the comparison to LH, another fish I would not even bother to eat let alone keep.

    ehh
    it's ok with me
    i wouldn't personally buy them, even if they ARE wild species with naturally long finnage
    the point here is everyone likes different things
    just have to accept it + that other people might not agree with you

    looking at it from a pragmatic point of view
    people rely on selling fish to make a living
    they don't really care whether the fish is natural or selectively bred
    so...
    to each their own, really
