Hmmm...I thought most of the albino cories were C. aenus (the bronze version). I know Petsmart lists their albinos as C. aenus. I was just curious because I have a an aenus specific tank with greens, 1 bronze, and a juvie albino. She was from a small pet store that had some peppereds in the tank in addition to bronze so now I don't know what she is. Her snout looks like an aenus though. From what I can tell in pictures C. paleatus have a smaller snout.

Well hello technical talk... I don't know what you're talking about LOL. All I know is that my albino cory looked IDENTICAL to my peppered - minus, of course, the color. I have seen Julii cats and they look different than those two....

Great information on keeping female Betta fish.
Great information on choosing tank mates for Betta fish.
Great information on male Betta fish care.



Mommy to: Nova (male CT), Little "Lucy" Lucifer (male VT), Titan (male RVT), and a 15 gallon community tank.

Paleatus is what I was told you usually find. I don't think albino aeneus aren't that hard to come by either, so that could definitely be what you have. They're really similar in body shape, I wouldn't know how to check accurately.

Your tank is really pretty, by the way. I love the more natural-looking tanks!
