Favourite cory species?

It seems that most people on here love cories, but I want to know what your favourite species are. :)

I love pandas because they are super cute, but my albino is such a clown and my peppered is stunningly pretty...I personally can't decide, but would love to hear what everybody else thinks! Feel free to post pictures or links. :)

I loved my pandas but sadly, they didn't agree with my very soft but very alkaline water and after many attempts at keeping them, my last panda passed. Such a shame. They're adorable. I also think Peppered Cories are beautiful but they get so much bigger than most cories. :(

I haven't heard much about them on here but I love my Axelrod Cory.

Albinos all the way for me. I love when the little army swarms the bottom of the tank at feeding time.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I love them all! :D
If I was to get a school of cories, I'd go for either pandas, albinos or axelrods. :)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I've got 3 habrosus (pygmy sized salt & pepper) & 1 julii (leopard, had 3 of these guys but 2 didn't make it. Not impressed with this LFS, won't go back. 1/2 of the cory's I've boughten in the past week have gone belly up.)
A local person has offered to help me find some more she knows lots of people who have them in their tanks & she's sure someone will have some of either to share. Hoping more for julii's than habrosus though!

Sunset Common(F), Julii Corys, Otto Suckermouth Catfish, Hillstream Loach, Leopard Loach, Clown Pleco, Blue Mystery Snail, Tetra's; BlackSkirt, Diamond, Black Phantom, Serapae.10gal Planted; Eeyore (Super Delta Marbled Betta M), hasbrosus Cory, Scissortail & Harlequin Rasbora's, black Neon & neon Tetra's, Otto Suckermouth Catfish. 2gal:group male guppies

Peppered for me!

I can't wait to get Pookie some friends. He was pretty small just a month ago, now he's as big as Phillip B. Fish!

Corydoras Habrosus, or Corydoras pygmaeus. The dwarf cories types are my favorites as they will be seen mostly in the middle layers of the tank opposed to bronze cories who are mostly in the bottom layers
