I have 3 distinct species of cory all of the "spotted" type in my tank. It is nearly impossible to get the same species unless you go with one of the above listed that have well defined markings (or if you are an expert at identifying them). I have two species with nearly identical markings but the mouth structure is significantly different between them.

They all shoal together though you can notice distinct differences in behavior amongst the species I have. One species likes to sleep on broad plant leaves during the day while another prefers to sleep under the stem plants....yet they always try to stick together for the most part.

Some of the species can definately be tricky, there's quite a few that are extremely similar, very few differences, and it really takes a trained eye to tell them apart

I have two unknown spotted, and two trilineatus. They tend to hang out in pairs, but the pairs are not always by species. It's just as common to see one spotted with one trilineatus as it is to see both of the same species together.

Thanks for all the info.

I think I will get about 12 of them. It's kinda weird talking about these kind of numbers because I'm used to bigger fish...
