A couple of new cory's


I was at the LFS getting a few Asian rummynose and some Amano shrimp when I got to talking to one employees. He gave me two cory's that came in with some Discus for free. I'm looking for an ID.
Here are pics of both.

Wow awesome. First is the orange laser. Its more colorful after the cory settles in

Others looks like regular bronze cories i think. Not sure though.
Awesome you got them for free, orange lazer are pretty rare and expensive

The dark one looks like C.aeneus "Black Venezuela", a black man-made form of bronze cory.

It doesn't look like a black to me, looks just like my bronze cories. I also have blacks to but they are bred from c. shultzis. Which to me look a lot better. The blacks will usually be all black with some red in the fins.

In person the dark fish looks "blackish", more black then bronze. I agree that it does not appear to be a true black, but maybe after settling in it will color up more.

Here is a pic of some other corys I recently got and I do not know their names either. Any ideas?

IDK, but www.CorysRUs.com has a pretty good stock list with photos that may help you get a working ID.

Nice finds!!

Probably doesn't help, but they are called green cories around here.
