So far I've not come across a green Cory. If it's bright green then it's very unlikely to be natural.

A photo would help.

Cheers

I've seen brighter greens on Aquabid labeled as green laser corys and also orange ones. The sellers claim wild caught but I don't know.

No those are normal emerald Cory's, remember, three emerald cories, are not Cory's, they are a different species of dwarf inches, but they top off 4-5 inches and are very active, I wouldn't recommend anything smaller than a 40 gallon for them
