I believe the Emerald Green Cory is a different species (Brochis). Most Albino Cories are Bronze Cory (Aneus), but Albinos can happen in all species. Just to confuse us all further some people refer to the Bronze as Green. Sigh.

Great Question!

Emerald Green Cory Cat (Brochis splendens)
(Albino) Aeneus Cory Cat (Corydoras aeneus)

Thanks yall for tryin...lol i bought these at our local big chain store and it said green cories but they look so different then the ones i first got from the same store.. i know they had emerald cories at one time n i saw how big they got as they had an adult in a tank . I was gonna return them if they were the emerald .. from what i have researched yall are correct bronze cories are also green cories and albinos can be from bronze cories or anyother ones also.. then the emerald is a bigger version basically of the cories ..
Clearance:
Nope no petting for this ole girl.. i used to actually pet my betta . I dont like fingerprints on my tank so i constantly clean it with a wet towel or papertowel (no cleaner just usually water) the hubby will put his hands on the tank while he looks..

I do have a crazy ish story too .. when I purchased the new cories yesterday they were layin in a pile in the far corner of the tank .. as soon as the woman handed me the bag i placed them on top of my arm laid down so they could move more if they wanted n the party started.. lol they were swimming back n forth n the bag n one was cuttin flips it was fun to watch but felt weird on my arm.. the hubby watched them for a time before we drove home.. once i added them to the tank they went to the other cories like an introduction of sorts then started swimmin up n down side to side by themselves my other cories didnt join in ..

The first post of this thread was enough for me to subscribe!
When I'm feeling a bit more verbose I'll have to relate my observations made today when my new Brochis splendens met the resident Corydoras ambiacus in my 5-gallon.

Sadly, I must confess. I just joined the lot of you in accidentally sucking up a Cory cat in the gravel vac. Of course, it was Lurch, the blind one. I felt so bad I sucked up the blind fish. (I can tell the two males apart by their tail. Somehow they both have highly unique tears that magically appeared with nothing to tear their tail on. Who knows.) he was spinning around the vacuum like in a tornado! I stopped the siphon and shot him straight into a rock! I coulda cried. Till he went upright in a nanosecond and returned to being a Cory cat. Then it was funny. I'm getting Cory cat voodoo hexed to Cory cat hell for that.

I totally "pet" my fish. In fact one of my dwarf gouramis and my common pleco will truly let me pet them. The gourami will eat out of my hand and let me touch him with the other. I just discovered that I could touch the pleco. I reached in the tank to push a plant back down but the pleco was laying too close. I touched it's tail to get it to move, but it didn't so I started rubbing it. I made it two full body rubs before it swam away... Weird I know!

I have a new funny Cory story. I have one banded Cory because the LFS only had that one left and I figured it would bond with the others regardless of coloring. It did, but I also have two skunk loaches that are marked and colored the same way. The banded Cory is always trying to get those loaches to play. They of course want NOTHING to do with this foolish Cory Cat behavior. They go under a rock their skinny bodies can fit under but not the chunkier body of the cory. He goes back to the group of Corys and seems to say to them "but they look like me! I just thought they might like to join the fun. "

At least he has 5 other cories to play with! He just seems so confused that the loaches don't like him.
