I came across these all black cory cats yesterday while looking for something else. Ive never seen or even heard of them before. Anyone out there have any info on these guys. There pretty cool looking but im not coming up with much when i do a search for them.


These are not my fish and this is not my photo, its from an auction on aquabid.

I think those are melanistic variants of a normal cory species (not sure which one).

This is correct-- they are a variation of Corydoras schultzei. I used to have 10 of them myself... they're definitely my favorite type of Corydoras. Care for
them is no different than any other Cory. I just wish they weren't so pricey! They usually go for $10-$15 ea.
