"peppered" cory cats

I saw these about a week or two ago at petsmart.They are like your standard cory but with spots.Kinda neat.

My question is will any kind of cory school with any other kind of cory?

Right now I only have two and want to fill the school out a little (at least one more)...but I'll stick with the same kind if I must.

when i asked this, i was told that they will school if the species look alike. If the species have the same colorations and have markings like the other ones then they will probably school.

If the cories look similar, they should school together.

I kind of see this arise with my corys.

I have 3 albino and 3 greens, they split up the time. 1/2 is spent all together, and the other 1/2 is spent seperated into their own type.

Thanks for the replys guys.I headed to the local store where I bought the other two and they had a few that were just the same.

BUT...they had so much death and disease on some of the tanks I decided I was NOT putting anything from that store into my tank.

One tank had quite a few young plecos in it and I believe more were dead then alive.Pitiful.I shop this store because its a little closer to my house than petsmart and its always looked a little rough,but the fish looked ok.

After what I saw today they won't get another dollar out of me.Not for a filter,rock or fish.I mean how hard is it to catch dead fish?

Absolutely pitiful.
