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....

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!
