Will my corydoras interbreed?

I've got 1 albino corydoras in my tank (cuz all the others died), so I wanted to start anew by buying 3 leopard corydoras. I would like to breed them, but I'm afraid that the albino corydoras would breed with them. I don't want a hybrid as I would like to sell the babies and hybrids could be dangerous. What can I do?

No, They will not interbreed. Albino Corys are usually the albino morph of the bronze corydora (Corydoras Aeneus) and what you are referring to as leopard corys are almost 100% not bronze corydoras.

Okay so I just bought the julii corydoras (or coryodras trilineatus) yesterday and they are like 3cm each so I really doubt that they will mate with my 7cm albino corydoras

Julis will grow to be about the size of your albino, just wait. I learned that with my 5 year old peppered Cory, started out at 1" and by two years he was 4"

Woah.

But what can I do if my julii corydoras all turn out to be females and can't breed? I don't want to sell all of them and buy babies again
