Pepper Cories, high fin or not, are Corydoras paleatus.

Albino might be any of several species, but any instructions you find for C. paleatus will be OK for the albinos. Often the albinos are also C. paleatus.

I have almost never seen the high fin form in stores, but I often see any of several dwarf Cories (there are several species).

Very general:
Pepper Cories are among the most adaptable of Cories.
Most Dwarf species are more demanding about the water parameters.

Best reference for catfish is Planet Catfish. Here is the link to Pepper Cories.

As stated above, it seems the high fin is just a variant of the peppered cory, but still corydoras paleatus. There is also a long finned variety according to this blurb:

And here's a link for an auction for another interesting long finned:

Personally, I think the longer fins take away from the "cuteness". But some people like the oddities.
