    Picked up some new corys and I know they are not what they were sold as. I think they are Corydoras Elegans. cory_resized(1).JPG

    What were they sold as? Was there any collection location given? The head shape looks wrong to be elegans to me but I am no Cory expert. If no one here is able to give you an answer try planet catfish, they have a whole post category labeled what is my catfish. People post there all the time and they have many experts that weigh in routinely on ID questions

    At least as far as planet catfish. Here is a picture of the cory elegans, comparing to the picture you posted it could be, but a picture like the one here is better for identification purposes.

    They were labeled as Corydoras Melini. Obviously wrong there. I will try to get a full side picture but they seem flighty to movement outside the tank.

    They finally got over their shyness and allowed me to take better side pictures. cory3_resized.jpg cory2_resized.jpg
