I received a gift of 6 of these and am enjoying their characters. I'm not 100% sure of the proper name. Some say it's Corydoras aeneus 'Black', some say Corydoras aeneus 'Venezuela' while others say it's Corydoras venezuelanus 'Black'. I'm going with the latter. There is good strong evidence for the latter and the majority appear to side with it so I'll stick with that until/if I learn different.

Seems quite a healthy specimen, Bill.
The first ones I managed to get hold of of these was when they first appeared on the scene and were excellent but I have noticed with later imports they have deteriorated immensely - no barbules and incomplete fins, not to mention very little in the way of the Black colouring of the original ones.
However, your little lad pictured above is much more like the originally-imported ones we got hold of 'back then'.
If your ones grow to maturity and reproduce please put me top of the list for the purchase of offspring.

Certainly, John. They are certainly lively little things.
