I know the Latin names are different, but I couldn't tell you for the life of me what makes them separate subspecies.

I think false Julii are know as C. trilineatus? Might have spelled that wrong.

Wish I had a more concrete and better educated answer! Sorry 😞

C. julii has a spots and trilineatus has wormy markings , that's the easiest way to tell.

I've never seen Pygmy cories before. There a smaller species?

Planet Catfish has a ton of info.

http://www.planetcatfish.com/common/...php?genus_id=1

My someday list:
C sterbai
C duplicareus
C weitzmani

I had one C axelrodi years ago and couldn't find more at the time. Lovely fish.

Almost any store selling C julii does not have julii Cories. There are a ton of similar cats. C trilineatus is the most common. Three Lined Cory is the original common name. "False" julii is still cashing in on the julii name.

True C julii are very rare in the trade. At least in the US.

I love my panda corys. I also used to have peppered which I really liked. I would post pictures but I'm camping and my husband wouldn't let me bring all my tanks, lol.

I really like the panda corys too but there a little more money then I wanted to spend.

I also want 6 in my 35 hex so I want them a little on the smaller side.
