I've said I have Emerald Green Cory Cats (Brochis Splendens), cause that's what they were labeled at the store. Last night in a thread somewhere I saw a pic of one and they didn't look much like mine. So I did a lot of searching and now I think I have bronze corys. The main difference is that the dorsal fins of the Emmies touch the caudal fin. On my guys there's a big gap between them. And they seem to have less spines in their fins then the Brochis.
I had three of them and I felt bad because one is always alone and two are always together (hence, Larry, Daryl and Daryl). Today I went to get another and I rechecked that petco had them listed as Brochis Splendens, which they do. So now I'm totally confused. My guys have brown patches and pale bellies. The new guy is way lighter but has the same gap between the dorsal and caudal. I think mine were light when they were new. Maybe the tannins in my water darken mine up? Anyway I'm confused. Haha! BUT I got a new fish! Yay!
