Possible Cory Mixup?


Alright, yesterday i went to my LFS and got 3 panda Corys and 6 rummies, i got home put them in the tank then noticed that one panda cory was different, he didnt have the Band around the base of his tail like the pandas do, instead it was a tinner band with a defined black stripe running up its back. i cant get a pic, hes currently in hiding, but is it possible i was given another type of cory? maybey Davidsandi?

Hello A...

Might be a Skunk or Arched Cory. Difficult to tell w/o a pic. But, as long as the little guy is healthy, does it matter that much?

Just a thought.

Interesting. Looks almost like a skunk and panda hybrid. Check planetcatfish
Found your mystery Cory
