Cory Catfish id

Hey guys don't mean to bug anyone with a simple question but i could use another pair of eyes. So i bought some Cory cats from pet-smart awhile ago that were labeled as Emerald Green but i'm kind of unsure about that. One of them recently died so i wanted to get another to take its place again as a group of 5. Though the problem is i moved to another town that doesn't have petsmart but the lfs sells green cory cats though they look slightly different. Sorry about the quality of the pictures i only have my phone.

They look like Corydoras aeneus otherwise known as bronze corys.

Thank you all for your answers, I guess petsmart messed up again... Now my next question is would my coryies be ok living with another breed? I know the lfs has Panda, Green, Albino, and i think peppered cory catfish. Would any of them school, breed, live together happily or should i try and order more of the bronze type to keep mine grouped around 5-6?

All cories can live in harmony. Though they always take preference to their own species.

IMO it looks like an Emerald Cory to me but it could be the pics.

Yeah I'm debating on emerald cory or bronze from the pics. And yes I also agree they can live together I n harmony.

Most of my catfish's body is dark with brown fins and small brown patches on their head. The only place that i can see a glitter of green in near their gill region. If that helps anyone.

Then I would agree on Bronze.

Ugh the app won't let me see the pics, so I don't want to blindly throw a third possibility out there.
